Is it normal that I’m moving a lot while I am sleeping?

People who twitch their legs or arm can have a condition called Periodic Limb Movement also referred to PLM.

It is similar to restless leg syndrome which occurs while awake and most often before going to sleep.

PLM occurs while you are asleep so often patients themselves do not know about it.  Their spouses are the ones who often suffer.

The causes of restless leg and PLM can be similar and can be due to low iron content.

If you are waking up non-refreshed, then PLM needs to be treated.

If left untreated, there is a 2-3x increased risk of heart attack.
