Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

Sleep Center at Comprehensive treats Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS).

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a condition that causes an uncontrollable urge to move your legs. It typically happens in the evening or nighttime hours when you’re sitting or lying down.

Moving helps ease the unpleasant feeling, but only temporarily. RLS can be hereditary and may also occur during pregnancy due to certain hormonal changes.
