Restless Leg Syndrome Remedies



Restless Leg Syndrome or RLS is a nervous system condition that causes discomfort and abnormal sensations in the legs. Those suffering from RLS feel a strong urge to move, flex, shake or stretch their legs to get rid of the discomfort. For many with RLS, it makes it very difficult for them to sit for long periods of time and it commonly causes severe insomnia. It is a common condition that affects between 2 to 15% of the population.

Many natural restless leg syndrome remedies are listed below that can be helpful in reducing the discomfort and perhaps curing this debilitating problem in some people.
