People who suffer from restless leg syndrome could have increased risk for heart disease.
That is according to a new study from Canada.
Restless legs syndrome, or RLS, is a neurological disorder in which people have strong urges to move their legs, especially at night when the body is at rest.
The new study included 10 patients whose RLS was not being treated with medication.
Blood pressure levels rose significantly during these periods of uncontrolled leg movements, especially among the elderly and people with a long history of the syndrome.
