Description


Fibromyalgia and Restless leg syndrome are closely related. If you have a fibromyalgia, there’s a good chance you have restless leg syndrome (or RLS) as well.

Fibromyalgia is a disease that causes your body to feel a constant sense of pain. This pain is located along 18 points in your body that are tender to the touch. In addition to the pain, people with fibromyalgia feel a constant fatigue and mental fog.  Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a disorder of the part of the nervous system that causes an urge to move the legs. 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.

Because it usually interferes with sleep, it also is considered a sleep disorder.
