Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) and Muscle Cramps

Restless legs syndrome is a common neurological disorder characterized by unpleasant sensations of the legs and an urge to move them for relief. Muscle cramps are prolonged painful muscle contractions mainly in the lower extremities. Individuals affected with RLS describe the sensations as pulling, drawing, crawling and sometimes painful sensations that are usually accompanied by an overwhelming urge to move the legs. Movement provides temporary relief from the discomfort. In muscle cramps should evaluate serum electrolytes, blood glucose and a complete blood count.
