Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Symptoms of Restless Legs Syndrome   #131400

Definition:

This is a questionnaire to assess restless legs syndrome, which is an uncontrollable urge to move the legs to stop uncomfortable burning, itching, or tickling sensations.

Purpose:

This measure is used to assess the severity of an individual’s symptoms of restless legs syndrome. Restless legs syndrome has been reported to affect up to 15% of the general adult population and is one of the most common sleep disorders (Chokroverty, 2003). The gene for restless legs syndrome has not been defined. A genetic component is likely because first-degree relatives of those affected with restless legs syndrome are at higher risk for developing the syndrome compared with the general population and because there is a high concordance among affected twins (Hening et al., 2002; Ondo et al., 2000).
