Abstract

The restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurologic condition characterized by an urge to move, usually associated with paresthesia, that occurs or worsens at rest and is relieved by activity. One of the central characteristics of RLS is the worsening of symptoms in the evening and during the night. Several studies have shown that the severity of leg discomfort follow a circadian rhythm, with the maximum occurring after midnight.
