Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)

Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is a neurologic sensorimotor  disorder that is characterized by an overwhelming urge to move the legs  when they are at rest. The urge to move the legs is usually, but not  always, accompanied by unpleasant sensations. It is less common but  possible to have RLS symptoms in the arms, face, torso, and genital  region. RLS symptoms occur during inactivity and they are temporarily  relieved by movement or pressure. Symptoms of RLS are most severe in the evening and nighttime hours and can profoundly disrupt a patient's  sleep and daily life.
