Movement Disorders in Sleep
It is the most commonly seen Restless Legs syndrome in Movement Disorders.
Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is a movement disorder associated with sleep. Patients feel the need to move their legs unbearably at night. Symptoms vary from patient to patient. Most patients have difficulty describing their uncomfortable sensations in their legs. It is often described as 'numbness' or 'tingling'. This is a very different histamine from cramps. This feeling of restlessness in the legs is the calf most often. Sitting and lying still increases this unpleasant feeling in the stools. Moving and receiving the legs reduces the complaints temporarily and for a short time. In some patients there are similar unpleasant sensations in the legs and in the corners. While some of the HBS patients' complaints are not constant, others appear every night. For this reason, a lot of patients have a bad sleep. Good sleep can be very tired over the last days. For this reason, their professional and social lives may be disturbed. Daytime sleepiness is only one of the problems of HBS creation. These patients can often be very difficult in car or plane travel. They also have difficulty in cinema, theater and business meetings where they have to sit for a long time in a similar way. HBS can cause anxiety and depression due to poor quality sleep causing it and causing sleep divisions.
The majority of patients with RLS also have a disease called Periodic Leg Movement Disorders in Sleep. When patients are asleep, they frequently twist backwards in the toes. This can be accompanied by joint movement in the form of ankle, knee and hip stretching. Sometimes these movements are described by spouses as throwing or kicking. Periodic leg movements tend to occur at regular intervals. Ranges are usually 20-40 seconds long. They occur more frequently in the first half of the day. Just like HBS, which is a sibling, this disease can also be with the legs and sometimes in the back.
'Periodic Leg Motion Disorder in Sleep' is almost always asleep, unlike HBS. Patients are unaware of this condition, so it is unlikely they will. On the contrary, the HBS's statement occurs during the day, and the legs are voluntarily moved because of unpleasant sensations in the legs.
'Periodic Leg Movement Disorders in Sleep' can significantly degrade sleep quality just like HBS. It can cause short-term wakefulness during sleep. Short-term vigilance that is not recognized by this patient is called 'microarousal'. For this reason, divided and non-restful sleep may occur. Patients can easily become drowsy during the day. Often they sleep while reading newspapers, watching television, working or driving. 'Periodic Leg Motion Disorder in Sleep' can disrupt sleep in wives who share the same bed, not just the patient. These spouses can say that they are kicked all night by the patient. Again, due to the movement of the legs they can open or fall over the bedcover.
