Restless legs syndrome is a condition in which a person experiences an uncomfortable feeling in their legs that is typically followed by the "irresistible urge to move [your] legs to relieve the sensation." If you're like 10 percent of Americans, you too have experienced this condition. And if you're like some of our Ohio readers, then you're probably wondering if it's a condition that can significantly impact someone's life.
Depending on the severity of the sensation and the frequency in which a person experiences RLS, this condition can have an impact on a person's life, particularly their ability to sleep. That's because most people experience RLS symptoms in the evening, just before bed, which can affect their quality if sleep. As our readers may know, some sleep disorders, such as insomnia, have been known to cause other health conditions that can also be disabling.
