Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a sensory-motor (movement) disorder characterized by uncomfortable sensations in one or both legs, which are worse during periods of inactivity or rest or while sitting or lying down. There is often a positive family history of the disorder. The symptoms of RLS may begin at any stage of life, including childhood, adolescence, or adulthood; however, the disease is more common with increasing age.

Fifty percent of patients report that discomfort in the legs prevents them from getting a good night’s sleep. Those with severe symptoms may sleep for only a few hours each night and, as a result, experience excessive daytime sleepiness. Increasing difficulty falling asleep and maintaining sleep is usually associated with a worsening of RLS symptoms.

Migraine, headache, mixed headache and neck pain are words that are often inappropriately interchangedIt is commonly believed that if a headache is associated with nausea or vomiting, or is severe enough to interfere with activities of daily living, then it must be a vascular migraine

While vascular migraine can certainly be the source of the above symptoms, there are known non-vascular migraines that can result in the same migraine symptoms. These include sinus, tension, metabolic, stress, weather-related vasomotor, and hormonal cycle-induced headache. In fact, most migraines result from a combination of these causes and are therefore are more properly referred to as mixed headaches. And the ocular migraine is a rare type of migraine marked by temporary vision loss.
