Hi Mopsa, Thanks for posting. Your symptoms sound very similar. I am very curious about what you’ve tried and anything that’s proved helpful. And also Beth’s question. I just saw there’s an article in the RLS Newsletter this month about the variations of PLM both while awake and asleep. My leg kicks...

Kicking legs while trying to sleep?

I’ve struggled with a variation of Restless Leg and Periodic Limb Movement for 15 years. It’s similar but different from RLS and PLM— it’s while I’m awake, without uncomfortable sensations, and without the typical movements or intervals of PLM. The involuntary jerking or kicking is what keeps me awa...

Thanks for info Susan. I searched past discussions on PLMW. My symptoms started before taking meds and are 90% in right leg with irregular jerking or flopping movements. It’s been hard to describe to doctors, so I video’d it. I’m curious if this is what PLMW looks like for other people too? I posted...

Kicking while awake?

Does anybody deal with this? My legs kick involuntarily at night while I’m trying to fall asleep and interfere with sleep. When it’s bad I only get a couple hours of sleep a night. I don’t experience the usual RLS uncomfortable sensations or voluntarily move my legs for relief. I’ve been dealing wit...
