Do You Have RLS

Have your legs ever hurt you at night so much that the pain keeps you awake?? Do you have to move your legs often because they feel uncomfortable no matter what you try to do?? Does the pain lessen or go away when you get up and move about?? Does sitting to long or laying down to long make your leg pain increase?? Does the leg pain increase in the evening and night time hours??

If you answered yes to these questions you may suffer from Restless Leg Syndrome or RLS. The national sleep foundation believes that an average of one in every ten American adults suffer from RLS. Many still believe that RLS is underdiagnosed.

Restless leg syndrome is a neurological syndrome that is also considered a sleep disorder as the symptoms increase at night. RLS often feels like a twitch or jiggling sensation is occurring in their legs.

RLS often runs in families and is increased by stress, inflammation and poor diet choices. It is believed that a healthy lifestyle will help improve symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome.

In addition nutritional deficiencies play a part in RLS. Nutrient deficient diets in magnesium, iron, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin D and electrolytes are all critical to function of the nervous system.

If you think this may be you, or you have symptoms that relate to these you should contact your doctor to find out what to do. There is treatment and medications that can help and would it not be great to get a good night of sleep
