Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Periodic Limb Movements (PLM)
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that makes someone want to move their legs in order to stop unpleasant sensations between the knee and ankle. Many times, Periodic Limb Movements (PLM) are mistaken for RLS, which are rhythmic movements and jerking of the feet or legs.
Common symptoms of RLS and PLM include:
- "Creepy" or "jumpy" legs
- Restless sleep
- Unpleasant sensation during sleep
- Insomnia/Non-refreshing sleep
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Increased activity
Often times, Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) can result in insomnia and other sleep disorders, which can lead to daytime sleepiness, anxiety, depression, and delayed thought process.
