Symptoms of Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)

Do You Think You Might Have RLS?

  • Have you ever had unpleasant or uncomfortable feelings in your legs that occurred mainly while you were either sitting or lying down?
  • Have you ever felt the need or urge to move your legs that occurred mainly while you were sitting or lying down?
  • While you are actually walking around, do you get any relief from these feelings?
  • Are these feelings in your legs more likely to occur while you are resting than when you are physically active?
  • Are these feelings in your legs worse at night or in the evening than at other times of the day?

If you have answered yes to these questions, you may suffer from Restless Legs Syndrome.
