Since the episodes mostly happen while the person is resting or sleeping, it affects sleep quality, and consequently, daytime functioning, including alertness during driving and operating heavy machinery.

It is rather tricky to diagnose restless leg syndrome correctly since the symptoms are not present all the time. It is nearly impossible to replicate them in a doctor’s clinic because they appear only when a person is resting or sleeping.

Although some people may have the characteristic sensations even when they rest during the day, they are usually milder and may not be apparent to others. However, they worsen towards the evening and become severe at night.
