Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurological movement disorder. It is characterized by uncomfortable and unpleasant leg sensations associated with an urge to move that occur while the body is at rest and are worse at night. Because the unpleasant feelings occur at rest and are relieved by movement, RLS sufferers have difficulty sleeping, and because of this, RLS can lead to daytime sleepiness, mood swings, anxiety, and depression.
