Your legs feel electric. It feels like worms or bugs are crawling inside your legs, causing an uncomfortable creepy-crawly, tingling sensation. You must move, you absolutely must. You can’t ignore it. It’s impossible. You can’t fall asleep, and you can’t stay asleep. The overwhelming urge to shake or move your legs is uncontrollable.
This is what it feels like to have Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). And 7-10% of the US population suffers from it.
RLS can affect any age, race, or gender. This nervous system disorder can start during childhood and worsen with age.
