Restless legs syndrome, susceptibility to, 6

Common Name(s)

Restless legs syndrome, susceptibility to, 6

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurologic disorder characterized by an uncontrollable urge to move the legs during periods of rest. The majority of patients with RLS also have periodic limb movements in sleep, which are characterized by involuntary, highly stereotypical, regularly occurring limb movements that occur during sleep. Limb movements during sleep are more common in otherwise asymptomatic family members of patients with RLS compared to the general population ({3:Stefansson et al., 2007}). Thus, periodic limb movements during sleep may serve as an endophenotype for RLS. However, not all patients with RLS have limb movements during sleep, and the majority of individuals with limb movements during sleep do not have waking symptoms of RLS ({6:Winkelman, 2007}). For additional information and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of RLS, see RLS1 ({102300}).
