Liv­ing with Rest­less Legs Syn­drome

Health & Nutrition - - HEALTH FLASH -

is a neu­ro­logic dis­or­der marked by un­com­fort­able feel­ings in the lower limbs that are height­ened by in­ac­tiv­ity and re­lieved by move­ment. The leg dis­com­fort usu­ally be­gins in the evening and wors­ens at night for most peo­ple as they at­tempt to sleep. Though move­ment promptly re­lieves the dis­com­fort, symp­toms re­turn as soon as the per­son sits or lies down again. Pa­tients can ease symp­toms with life­style mea­sures, such as tak­ing a hot bath, ex­er­cis­ing on a sta­tion­ary bike be­fore bed­time and avoid­ing caf­feine, al­co­hol and nico­tine.
