Disturbed Sleep? Is It Due To Restless Leg Syndrome?

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is characterized by unpleasant sensations in the leg that can range from mild to an extremely painful feeling and an irresistible urge to move your leg to feel better. These sensations often begin or become worse at night, leading to chronic sleep disorders, discomfort and stress.


The causes of Restless Leg syndrome is not known in most of the people, but it is associated with certain conditions like obesity, smoking, iron deficiency, diabetes and certain nerve diseases. Certain drugs and medications like caffeine, alcohol, and certain anti-depressants are also known to cause RLS.
