Thank you so much for all of this valuable information!

Aug 1, 2019 · Periodic Limb Movement Disorder in Sleep Health

Thank you for all of the detailed information. I've had PLMD and RLS since I was about 14. I can handle the RLS it's the PLMD that I am constantly fighting. The twitching during the day but mostly at night. The acking and pain in them is unbearable sometimes. I've been on every medication possible until my body doesn't respond to it. I finally did an EEG which came up fine and sleep study. The sleep study came up that I have severe PLMD and RLS and to take 1200 MG of Gabapentin and 600 MG of Mirapex. I work in finance and theres on way I could function that. My doctor never went over my my sleep study he just said over the phone what I told you. I'm wondering how severe is it? What do the PLMD arousal number mean. Will this keep getting worse? I have to take mirapex throughout the day because insurance doesn't like to cover time release. When I was on different insurance they covered Nuepro patches. Those worked so well. My doctor at the time referred me to Seattle doctors after 6 months of seeing him. No one in Seattle specialist in PLMD. Are there other people out there going through what I am? Are there different medications that help better so I don't have off time. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
