Answer

The sensations of RLS usually are worse during inactivity and often interfere with sleep, leading to chronic sleep deprivation and stress. [8] Once correctly diagnosed, RLS can usually be treated effectively, and in some secondary cases, it can even be cured. (See Treatment and Medication.)
