It is a syndrome w/ symptoms of an urge to move the legs especially near bedtime, that improves w/ movement ; is worse @ rest.
It typically has uneasy sensations. Medications, avoiding caffeine, gentle stretching exercises, and if due to underlying disorders, treating those disorders can help treat it. It's recommended that you see a sleep medicine specialist to properly diagnose and treat rls.
