Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Your health care provider will ask you to return for one or more follow-up visits after trying his or her recommendations.
It is very important that your bed partner understand the nature of PLMD and that you are not intending to injure him or her with your movements.
See your health care provider regularly for proper care of any medical or mental problems.
Primary PLMD may be chronic (permanent). Many people with primary PLMD have improved nighttime sleep (remission) but experience one or more relapses over time.
Secondary PLMD may cease with treatment of the underlying cause.
