What is Restless Leg Syndrome?

Restless leg syndrome is a condition in which sensations in the leg cause a need for the leg to move to stop any unpleasant feelings. RLS can also occur in the arms and other parts of the body. Symptoms such as a crawling or odd sensation can occur when you are lying down or sitting.

Treatment for restless leg syndrome includes taking medication. A common drug class used to treat restless leg syndrome is the dopamine agonists drug class.
