What are troubled legs and restless legs?

The medical term for troubled legs is the restless legs syndrome. The restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder characterized by a throbbing, pulling or other discomfort in the legs and an uncontrollable, sometimes overwhelming urge to move them. Symptoms occur especially at night, when a person is relaxed and often increase seriously. Moving the legs relieves the discomfort. The most striking aspect of this condition is that lying down and trying to relax activates the symptoms. Most people with troubled legs have difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. When there is no treatment, the condition causes exhaustion and fatigue symptoms during the day. Restless legs is about 10 to 15 percent of the Dutch population. Often the symptoms start only after the twentieth year.

The symptoms can be reduced in people with mild to moderate RLS by making certain changes in his / her lifestyle. Consider, for example, the reduced use of caffeine, alcohol and tobacco; to supplement the shortage of iron, folic acid and / or magnesium; change or maintain a regular sleep pattern; move more; and wearing support stockings.
