In brief: RLS symptoms
Rls causes a strong urge to move your legs.
This urge to move often occurs with strange and unpleasant feelings in your legs. Moving your legs relieves the urge and the unpleasant feelings. People with RLS describe the unpleasant feelings as creeping, crawling, pulling, itching, tingling, burning, aching, or electric shocks. See http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/health/health-topics/topics/rls/.

In brief: Urge
Urge to move, uncomfortable sensation, tingling, numbness, "funny sensation" .
.. No matter what the descriptor they happen when inactive in the evening or night. Movement makes the symptoms go away. That is what differentiates this syndrome from things like neuropathy.
