Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a common neurological disorder which can be accompanied with PLMS and can result in sleep disturbance. Greater understanding of pathophysiology of RLS in recent years has led to increased treatment options for this condition. A comprehensive clinical evaluation and appropriate management using combined nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic strategies can result in significant improvement in treatment outcomes in patients with RLS.
