Causes of Restless leg syndrome
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) occurs most often in middle-aged and older adults. Stress makes it worse. The cause is not known in most patients.
RLS may occur more often in patients with:
Chronic kidney disease
Use of certain medications such as caffeine, calcium channel blockers, lithium, or neuroleptics
Withdrawal from sedatives
RLS is commonly passed down in families. This may be a factor when symptoms start at a younger age. The abnormal gene has not yet been identified.
