Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a symptom of perimenopause and menopause, probably because sleep patterns are often disrupted. It’s the feeling where you just can’t relax and get comfortable and have to keep moving your legs to get rid of the tingling. This prevents sleep and can be very annoying. Hormonal changes are known to worsen RLS symptoms. Sometimes there’s also a spontaneous kick involved, something bed partners are not at all keen on.
