PHT 033 : New Data on Restless Leg Syndrome

This week we are doing an update on Restless Leg Syndrome.  RLS is a disabling condition where individuals attempt to sit down or go to bed in the evening, and they experience an intense sensation to move their legs.  Often, they have to get up and move around, preventing them from getting adequate sleep.  Most RLS sufferers describe it as being miserable.
Today we will present some of the new data regarding RLS, and potential new treatment options.
Please enjoy and forward your comments to us here on our website or our Facebook page.  Thank you for listening!
