Sist revidert:
Sist revidert av:

Definisjon:
Rastløse bein, syn. restless legs syndrome (RLS) eller Willis-Ekboms sykdom, karakteriseres ved episoder med ubehag/kribling i beina som forsvinner/reduseres ved bevegelse 
Forekomst:
Relativt hyppig, studier viser at så mange som 5-10% av befolkningen plages
Symptomer:
Kribling/murring/ubehag i beina, melder seg i hvile, spesielt om kveld eller natt, bedres ved aktivitet 
Funn:
Ved undersøkelse ingen tegn til annen nevrologisk sykdom. Økt risiko for depresjon
Diagnostikk:
Klinisk diagnose. Blodprøve med tanke på jernmangel og blodprosent bør tas. Jernlagre ofte i nedre del av normalområdet, ev. jernmangel (ferritin < 75)
Behandling:
Informasjon og rådgivning. Eventuelt jerntilskudd eller annen medikamentell behandling
