Resources and treatment options

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a condition of motor restlessness in response to or in an effort to relieve unusual sensations or discomfort. To the extent that someone feels a compelling urge to move, these movements may be termed involuntary.

RLS is quite common amongst HSPers, and is quite a significant issue for those who have it. Almost everyone with RLS also experiences sleep disturbances including difficulty falling asleep as well as problems remaining asleep.

To learn more including causes of RLS and treatment, including lifestyle changes and activities for RLS, there are extensive and excellent resources on the WeMove website at: http://www.wemove.org/rls/
