Diagnosing RLS vs PLMD
Posted by John (Australia) on 09/30/2020

*Important note*;

RLS should not be confused with "Period Limb Movement Disorder"…

'RLS' vs. 'Period Limb Movement Disorder'…

  • In RLS, there are NO involuntary movements/spasms. RLS involves uncomfortable sensations in the legs and an urge to move the limbs… all movement with RLS is voluntary.
  • In PLMD, there are involuntary spasms, twitching and involuntary movements.

They are two completely different conditions…

  • RLS is a nerve condition.
  • PLMD is a muscle condition.
  • Opiates, like morphine, help RLS but does not help PLMD.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, like Diclofenac, help PLMD but do not help RLS.
