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.
