RLS stands for Restless Leg Syndrome. It causes sensations in your legs, like itching, prickiling, and sometimes pain. RLS may also effect other parts of your body, like your arms. If you don't have the sensations, you have a constant urge to move around. RLS is often confused for ADHD or ADD, but RLS is not hyperactive. It's just an unfulfillable need to move around. It affects about 10% of the U.S. population, and although it hasn't been proven, doctors believe it is a genetic condition. This is because it often appears in people who have family members with similar syptoms.

 

You may think that RLS isn't a big deal. But it is. Some people with RLS experience pain, ranging from mild to severe. RLS becomes more active as you start to rest, like lying or sitting down. This makes it hard for people who have RLS to sleep. 

 

Treatments are not very advanced, just medicine to help ease pain and to help you sleep. There is no cure, and no blood tests to diagnose it. It's based purely off your symptoms. Some people have certain things that can calm them down, like music, and they start to feel relief.

 

My symptoms are more on the severe side, but I mostly experience sensations, sometimes pain. I do often feel the need to move around, and I get in trouble in school for it. I can't really explain that I have RLS, because many people don't take it seriously. We believe that I got it from my mom, and my sister doesn't have it. I haven't discovered anything that soothes my RLS, and I don't take medicine because I am only 12.

 

I have RLS. Do you?
