Have you ever felt like having a strong urge to move your legs? Or has it come to a point where this restlessness is disrupting your sleeping pattern to the point of keeping you awake? You may be suffering from a condition called the restless leg syndrome.
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) may present itself along with neuropathy or a condition of the nervous system. It is important to note that RLS is not easily equated to neuropathy, but there is a clear correlation between RLS and neuropathy. Due to its interference with the sleeping pattern of a patient it is also considered a sleep disorder affecting over 10 percent of the U.S. population.
Usually, the severity of RLS syndrome ranges from mild to intolerable. For some, the condition can be severe during night time, which can significantly impair their quality of life.
