Re: Is having restless legs a medical condition?
RLS is a medical condition, and caused by dopamine deficiency. It can cause serious sleep disruption, and can be treated with a variety of things, medications, heat, massage, Magnesium and calcium supplements. It can be caused by low iron as well, so a ferritin (stored iron) level should be checked and if under 100, iron should be taken as a supplement. It is not just from being tired. Can be hereditary. Neurologists treat it, plus sleep specialists.
