Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a common neurological disorder, which disrupts life and sleep considerably for those who have it. Its diagnosis is clinical, based on essential criteria of International RLS Study Group. It can be idiopathic or associated with various medical and other neurological disorders. Idiopathic RLS can be sporadic or may have a familial inheritance, with several genetic loci reported. RLS has a strong association with Periodic Limb Movements (PLM), both during sleep and wakefulness. Very few studies of familial RLS/PLM in sleep and their associations have been reported from India. Nocturnal eating is a non-motor manifestation of RLS with several clinical implications. We report an Indian family with RLS and PLMs as well as dysfunctional nocturnal eating.
