Added: 23 July 2011

Recent studies of Restless Legs Syndrome (published in PLoS Genetics) suggests that Restless Legs Syndrome may be genetic.

The study found that there were six genetic “regions” that are connected with an increased risk of RLS, of which four were gene mutations, two of which have been previously discovered.  Two mutations however were new.

Juliane Winklemann, from the Institute of Human Genetics in Munich, Germany, says that the findings of the study will help with creating new treatments for RLS as well as providing insight into the causes of RLS.
