Health Alert: Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome is a condition that causes strange sensations in your legs.

Posted: Oct 31, 2018 12:55 PM

MEDFORD, Ore. -- Restless Leg Syndrome causes you to have the urge to move your legs at night. This can make it harder for you to get sleep.

Some people describe the feeling as crawling, creeping, pulling, or itching.

The symptoms usually happen when you are at rest and often go away if you move your legs on purpose.

They are the worst at night and sometimes your legs can move in your sleep.

You might feel better if you do activities that keep your mind alert during the day, get regular exercise, massage your legs, or apply heat to your legs.

You should see a doctor if the condition bothers you or if it keeps you from getting a good night's sleep.
