Understanding Restless Legs Syndrome

“RLS – Incurable, But Treatable”
Some medical conditions are rare, some are dangerous, some are both. Other conditions are neither rare nor dangerous, yet maintain just as much of a mysterious aura. Count RLS as one such condition. It was first discovered about 70 years ago and is a serious and chronic disease with moderate to severe symptoms. But for several reasons, your doctor may not even consider it as a true medical condition. Today, Restless Legs Syndrome remains highly misdiagnosed – in fact, a proper diagnosis takes about 14 years to reach. For the 7 million RLS sufferers in the US alone, those 14 years can be agonizing and debilitating, negatively affecting every aspect of life. Because of the major sleep disruptions caused by the conditions, RLS frequently affects spouses and families. RLS frequently runs in families and gets progressively worse with age. Despite the fact that there is currently no known test for diagnosing RLS, there is good news.
