My husband thinks I'm exaggerating when I have trouble sleeping b/c of his PLMD - any suggestions, please?
Is your husband receiving treatment for PLMD? If not, then that's the first challenge. The doctor will (our should) inform him that many sufferers of PLMD are not quite aware of their movements though their partners are! Also his doctor can order a sleep study where he will be continuously monitored and he can request a copy of the chart that shows his movement. In some cases they video the sleep session. The measure of last resort is that you sleep in separate beds (in the same room or separate) but that could cause other issues to your relationship. I've had PLMD for a few years now and I take medication that mostly allows me to have a restful night's sleep. I try to take the medication (Pramipexole) at least a couple of hours before bedtime so that it's affecting my system by the time I go to bed. This has worked for me and my wife.
