RLS Affects Families

RLS Affects Families

Posted by Deb on June 05, 2000 at 10:52:19:

For the past 25 years I have been married to a man severely affected by RLS. If he is able to sleep at all, it is for only a few hours a night. He is up all night, wandering around the house. He often wakes up after a short sleep ravenously hungry, and often eats large amounts of food in the middle of the night. As he tries to relax, his legs and/or arms move at about 10-second intervals. His highest level of alertness occurs between midnight & 2 am. It is almost impossible for him to get up in the morning, and he often moody and irritable and unable to cope with daily activities. He thinks I am the one with the problem. Any help for families out there?
