Most days at 6pm my dads leg begin to get irritated and he feels he needs to constantly move & shake them. Any suggestions that will help to calm? He is on PD overnight with one daily fill.
This sounds like "restless leg syndrome". Many dialysis patients are affected by this. There is some treatment out there, but I don't know how effective it is, your dad should talk to his doctor about it.
My husband has got this restless leg syndrome he just cannot sleep at night he is going on to capd this week, he had his tube fitted over a week ago, can any one tell me if it will go away with being on dialysis.We have tried every thing, wet cloths, paracetamol any ideas out there.
