Approximately three percent of adults are significantly affected by this disorder, which severely affects sleep, work, relationships, and quality of life.
While there is currently no cure for RLS/WED, in most cases, the symptoms can be controlled through lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, and in some cases medical treatments. People with RLS/WED should speak with a health care professional about how to best manage their symptoms.
