In brief: Yes
Not as uncommon as you think.
Usually children with RLS have parents that are affected.

In brief: Definitely
Check out RLS network foundation which has a lot of information on this.
Up to 4% of pediatric patients can have rls. The risk is greatly increased if one or both parents has the condition. Some medical problems and medications can also cause or worsen.

In brief: No
Syndromes are a collection of symptoms that often come together in a significant number of cases, and some panel makes a syndrome (not a disease entity) out of it.
Your kid doesn't have rls. Take to your primary care pediatrician.
