Abstract

RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome) is one of the frequent illnesses that goes undetected or un diagnosed. According to reports, the incidence of RLS in India is far lower compared to the Western countries. RLS is a genetically driven organic neurological disorder whose iron metabolism is affected. RLS patients commonly experience a strong need to move as well as experience anxiety.The symptoms of restless legs syndrome include odd sensations in the legs, such as tingling, crawling, pulling, aching. The illness can also affect other body parts, such as the head, chest, or arms. Both sides of the body experience the feelings more frequently. They may exclusively occur on one side, or they may begin on one side before moving to the other. There are no proper management strategies available to treat RLS treatment.Opioids, benzodiazepines, anticonvulsants, Dopaminergic medicines, adrenergic pharmaceuticals, magnesium, iron and a wide selection of other substances are currently available for symptomatic management.
