PLMD experience?

Post by wantok »

As most with PLMD know, there is little research about our condition. I am interested in learning as much as I can about successful treatment of PLMD from sufferers. I am especially interested in people whose principal complaint is PLMD.

What medicine helped you and for how long?

My wife's principal complaint is my PLMD. Hard to sleep with someone with this condition but she is a great sport. My symptoms are mostly when I'm asleep but a little in the evenings. I had no idea how bad it was until I took a video even though it's been going on for over 45 years. Without Clonazepam I would be bouncing off the walls now. Even the meds that worked for a few months on RLS (Requip ER, Gabapentin, Lyrica and some other DAs) quickly lost their effectiveness on me. Especially as far as PLMD is concerned.

Good luck and try everything before loading up on meds.

What does "try everything" mean? I watch my triggers, if that is what you mean.

I wish I had an answer for you. Mine was much worse then the RLS, but augmentation changed that. Permanently. Now I don't even worry about the PLMS.
