Best Answer

Most people with restless legs syndrome (RLS) find it difficult to fall asleep/stay asleep because lying down and trying to relax activates the symptoms. Most people with RLS have disturbed sleep mainly because of limb discomfort and jerking. The condition can cause exhaustion and daytime fatigue. RLS seems to affect more women than men and research has suggested that caffeine, alcohol and smoking may aggravate or trigger symptoms. There is no single diagnostic test for RLS; it is diagnosed clinically by evaluating the patient's history and symptoms. Doctors may prescribe a variety of medications including central nervous system depressants, opioids (such as codeine) and anticonvulsants. Unfortunately, no one drug is effective for everyone with RLS and drugs that help one individual may worsen symptoms for another. In addition, medications taken regularly may lose their effect, making it necessary to change medications periodically.

Research Notes on Restless Legs Syndrome Restless legs syndrome (RLS, Wittmaack-Ekbom's syndrome, or sometimes, but inaccurately, referred to as Nocturnal myoclonus) is a condition that is characterized by an irresistible urge to move one's body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations. It most commonly affects the legs, but can also be in the arms and torso. RLS can improve with activity. Relaxation can trigger the sensation and urge to move. RLS is considered idiopathic , or with no known cause. RLS can occur as early as the first year of life.
