Thanks for the responses. This is all very new to me and I am confused by the clinical language used on some websites. I can understand why folks who have no contact with this at all don't understand it. The written text really doesn't do justice to describe the experience. I wish I could find some ...

My wife has trouble grinding her teeth most nights but it is especially worse when she exhibits the PLMS symptoms. Take two smooth stones and rub them together to get an idea what it sounds like.

what is meant by the word, 'disabling'

Would someone explain what that means, please?

Thanks in advance.

wife beats me up at night

Hi folks, I'm new to the forum and had specific questions to ask, but wanted to introduce myself first. My wife has shown symptoms of RLS for as long as we've been married. Between midnight and 3 or 4 AM she exhibits PLMS characterized by myoclonic hand and leg movement. I'm exaggerating when I say ...
