Atlanta Sleep Medicine Clinic Views Representative Henry Waxman's Denial of Restless Leg Syndrome as a Sign of General Lack of Awareness of the Sleep Disorder

ng mislabeled or ignored altogether, rather than receiving appropriate and effective treatment."

Despite, an increase in the availability of sleep services in the United States, there is still a lack of awareness about sleep disorders among the general population. According to the Restless Leg Syndrome Foundation, nearly 10% of the U.S. population may have RLS. Although many in this group have a mild form of this disorder, millions of Americans struggle daily with severe effects of RLS.

In describing her own symptoms, Gayle said, "When you have RLS, you know when you are getting tired because your legs begin to get really uncomfortable. You feel like you have to move your legs around. At night, you often unconsciously move your legs around like you are walking or running. This can be disruptive to not only your own sleeping patterns, but also to your sleeping partner."

Symptoms

So how can you find out if you or someone you know has Restless Legs Syndrome? The following symptoms are all possible indicators:

 
  • An irresistible urge to move your legs when resting, sitting, or lying down
  • A strong desire to move your legs that is relieved after walking around
  • Involuntary leg movements while awake or asleep
  • Tiredness or inability to concentrate during the day
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep at night
