Taylor Lautner and Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome could be put to rest

 By Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen, Special to the Province
Restless Leg Syndrome is about to get a name change: Hello Willis-Ekbom disease. They're punking us, right? Well, actually, no. But we YOU Docs suspect you might have preferred it get renamed for Taylor Lautner. He battles the disease in real life, and his werewolf character, Jacob Black, is pretty restless too! But the International RLS Study Group has decided that:

Since legs are supposed to move, not stay at rest; AND sometimes legs, arms and torso are involved; AND "syndrome" describes a collection of symptoms, but RLS is a specific neurologic disease, RLS (in name only) will be leaving the building. Hopefully, the disease itself soon will get its walking papers.
