Creepy Crawlies: Late Night Dancing or Restless Legs Syndrome?


Do strange and unpleasant sensations in your legs keep you up at night?  Are you bothered by an almost irresistible urge to move your legs when you lie down or relax?  If so, you may have a sleep disorder known as restless legs syndrome (RLS).  The tingling, aching and itching of restless legs syndrome can last for hours and usually gets worse at night, preventing you from getting sleep.  What are signs and symptoms of restless legs syndrome?  How is RLS diagnosed and what are treatments for it?
