Restless legs syndrome is a sleep disorder that causes an almost irresistible urge to move your legs (or arms). The urge to move occurs when you’re resting or lying down and is usually due to uncomfortable, tingly, aching, or creeping sensations.
Most Common signs and symptoms:
- Uncomfortable sensations deep within the legs, accompanied by a strong urge to move them.
- The leg sensations are triggered by rest and get worse at night.
- The uncomfortable sensations temporarily get better when you move, stretch, or massage your legs.
- Repetitive cramping or jerking of the legs during sleep.
