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 this? He is on PD overnight.
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.
Yes, restless-leg-syndrome is exactly what it is. I know it all too well. My doctor always would tell me to walk or run during the day to tire out my legs so then I wouldn't get this at night. The only meds you can take are sleep aids, but that's not good either. I would rather walk/run during the day.
