Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Epilepsy is characterized by recurrent seizures

What you have is PLMD

Periodic limb movement disorder

Ask your GP for ropinorole. It will help

I see.

It sounds like classic PLMD

But neurological problems like MS need to be considered
