In the United Kingdom, the former Lord Mayor of York and City of York Councillor says restless legs syndrome was a reason for her resignation, reports The (York) Press.

She said: “Sometimes are worse than others but when it’s bad, it’s very difficult to cope. I’ve been kept awake for two or three days at a time. That’s not getting any better. It’s fairly under control with medication but it can break through the medication every now and then.
