Restless legs, Restless Legs Syndrome or RLS for short, can have a major impact on your life. Because of a bad feeling in your legs you have the urge to move them. For most people, the symptoms are worst in the evening or before you go to sleep.
RLS occurs in about 6% of the population. Restless Legs Syndrome is a well-known problem and with the technique of Relegs you can easily reduce the complaints.
But how do you recognize RLS? Possible from one of these 5 symptoms or consequences:
Feeling restless in your legs
You experience a difficult to describe and restless feeling in your legs. Many people suffer from RLS without really realizing it. Restless legs are a 'vague' complaint for many: you feel something, but it is difficult to describe it. Jumping legs, tickling legs, disco legs: this restless feeling has many (by) names.
You can feel this when sitting still for a long time in the office, in a cinema / theater or on an airplane. And at home on the couch, or when you lie in bed and go to sleep, or at other times when your legs are resting.
