If you are a regular reader than it is not a surprise I have watched a lot of Seinfeld reruns. In the episode The Money There is scene in that episode where Kramer describes a condition he calls “The Jimmy Leg”
Well the actual name for this condition is not the “Jimmy Legs”. It is called Restless Leg Syndrome.
RLS symptoms are estimated to affect around 7 to 8 percent of adults in the United States. Primarily it is a strong, uncontrollable need to shake your leg. RLS also goes by the name Willis-Ekbom Disease. Symptoms commonly occur in the late afternoon or evening hours, and are often most severe at night when a person is resting, such as sitting or lying in bed.
You can read more about RLS at this link.
RLS can cause exhaustion and daytime sleepiness, which can strongly affect mood, concentration, job and school performance, and personal relationships. Many people with RLS report they are often unable to concentrate, have impaired memory, or fail to accomplish daily tasks.
