    • Abstract:
      The article reports that specialists told a meeting of the European Federation of Neurological Societies in Athens, Greece, last month, that general practitioners can easily identify patients with restless leg syndrome (RLS) by asking them four simple questions. RLS is one of the most common causes of sleep problems. It is a common, serious and disabling condition that leaves patients chronically sleep-deprived. It has been characterized as difficult to describe but easy to diagnose because of it presentation.
