Do you suffer from restless leg syndrome?

Rest legs syndrome is an uncomfortable sensation in your legs, where you have an irresistible urge to move your legs to relieve the symptoms. The condition causes itchy legs, pins and needles, creepy crawly feeling in the legs, throbbing muscles, and a cramping sensation (particularly in the calves). The symptoms of restless leg syndrome typically worsen during the early evening or later at night. This condition is most prevalent when you are extremely tired or after strenuous physical activity. It is also a common cause of insomnia as the condition is most prevalent at night. Many of us will experience RLS at some stage. In fact, 10 per cent of the population suffer from RLS. Research has indicated that low levels of magnesium have been linked to poor sleep and RLS.
