From the age of 17, a girl had experienced strange symptoms in her legs when she sat still. She felt pressure on her calves and felt an incredible need to move them constantly. It was ten years before restless leg syndrome was diagnosed. RLS affects about 10% of the population. There is no cure but it appears to be related to reduced iron levels. The condition is greatly unrecognized and undiagnosed. Estimated 28 million people are believed to suffer from restless leg syndrome.
