a neurological disorder which effects up to 5% of our population(estimated by recent research)many suffers spend their evenings and nights pacing the floor, or vigorously exercising to relieve the uncontrollable need to move their legs.The symptoms can include:crawling, creeping, burning,tingling and twitching beneath the skin(in my case I describe it as a pain)usually between the thighs and the ankles and sometimes even in the arms. It is most noticeable when you sit or lie down to rest, travelling or anytime you sit for any length of time. You can tolerate the symptoms during the day but when you only get 2 hours or less sleep night after night it becomes a serious matter.
