Restless Leg Syndrome: Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis

  By posted Apr 19th 2014

Restless leg syndrome is a commonly missed diagnosis with varied presentations. The most common complaint is the presence of abnormal sensations in the legs (and sometimes upper limbs) and the continuous urge to move the affected limb. This can be associated with jerky limb movements in sleep. This causes distress to the patient, impairs quality of life and disrupts normal sleep leading to excessive sleepiness in the day. As a result many of the patients tend to be anxious, irritable and have poor concentration.
