SYMPTOMS OF RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME
The compelling desire to move is what gives restless legs syndrome its name. Common characteristics of RLS signs and symptoms include:
• Sensation starts after being at rest. The sensation typically begins after you have been lying down or sitting for an extended time, such as in a car, airplane or movie theater.
• Relief by movement. The sensation of RLS lessens with movement, such as stretching, jiggling your legs, pacing or walking.
