What other symptoms are present? The four key signs of restless legs syndrome (RLS) are strong urge to move the legs; symptoms that start or get worse when inactive; relief from moving; or symptoms that start or get worse in the evening or at night. People who have RLS describe the unpleasant feelings in their limbs as creeping, crawling, pulling, itching, tingling, burning, aching, or electric shocks. Diagnosis is with complete physical examination as well as diagnostic tests like blood test, muscle or nerve tests. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by a doctor. Other conditions such as allergy, irritation, underlying conditions or skin issues may need to be ruled out also. Take care and regards.
