The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute says typical symptoms include:

  • Feeling a crawling, tingling, burning, aching, pulling or itching sensation in the legs.
  • Having the urge to move worsens when you are still.
  • Walking and other types of movement alleviate the urge.
  • Having symptoms that worsen late in the day.
