Is Restless Legs Syndrome a legitimate physical/medical condition or a psychosomatic disorder?


Those who suffer with this condition find it difficult to describe the sensations they feel that cause them to move their legs. As a result some people believe the condition is not physical but mental. Whatever your opinion, if any, about RLS might be, I would like to direct you to www.rls.com. It is the site of the RLS foundation. Thanks, Chris

    Hi Iburmaster. I have had RLS since I was a child. I see a neurologist regularly. I find that people around me have a hard time getting their heads around this disease. I would like to be more involved in public education about RLS. Thanks.

    kiera, it is always nice to talk to someone who knows what I am talking about. I am sorry you suffer so much. Than you for taking the time to pass on such good advice. I know one person with spina bifida and he has a hard life.
