Restless legs syndrome or wittmaack ekbom syndrome affects legs throbbing, creeping, pulling or unpleasant sensations mostly at night. Characterised by urge to move them to avoid abnormal and uncomfortable sensations. RLS is often paresthesias or dysesthesias depending on type of sensations.
People with restless legs syndrome have uncomfortable sensations in their legs and an irresistible urge to move their legs to relieve the sensations. The condition causes an uncomfortable, "itchy," "pins and needles," or "creepy crawly" feeling in the legs. The sensations are usually worse at rest, especially when lying or sitting. The severity of restless legs syndrome symptoms ranges from mild to intolerable. Symptoms can come and go and severity can also vary. The symptoms are generally worse in the evening and at night.
