Restless leg syndrome with periodic limb movement disorder is a serious sleep disorder. It causes a person to feel uncomfortable at all times. The more you relax the worse it gets. So when its time to fall asleep is extremely difficult.When experiencing painful or unnerving sensations the urge to move is instinctive leaving a person unable to be at relax or rest. Periodic Limb movement causes a person to move throughout sleep. These movements cause constant arousal's from sleep and happen so much a person does get restorative sleep. Restless leg disorder is extremely difficult to treat. The medications available for RLS are Parkinson's disease drugs and/or opioid. Some people get relief from avoiding caffeine,cigarettes and some certain antidepressants. Others have more severe forms and rely on dopamine agents and benzodiazapines in order to rest. Opiods and certain seizure medications are used to combat the pain. Most medications only work so long. Before you know it RLS over shadows the medication. RLS is progressive meaning it tends to intensify with age. I am 32 and have had RLS/PLMD since childhood. It started off as a nuisance and became a constant intrusion. Medications have failed to be adequate but lessen RLS's intensity. One can only hope more research wil be done and treatment other than opiods will be available.

Although she was quite thin, Audrey Hepburn, did not have an eating disorder. I remember reading that during the war she was malnourished as a child and went hungry for many years. As a result she was unable to put on weight. She loved to eat and had a large appetite with a love for pasta. Please do not quote me, but I believe this information came from her son.

Margot Kidder - the lady who played Lois Lane in Superman (when C. Reeve was Superman) had a major meltdown of some sort. There's plenty of articles about her problems.

brad, 32: I had insomnia a few months ago...cannot sleep immediately and difficulty in staying asleep...I tried melatonin, milk, bananas and it helped a little bit. I need to sleep because it is affecting my driving ability. It was the chinese herb given by a chinese doctor which cured my insomnia. I still wake up but immediately fall back to sleep in 5 minutes or so and I can sleep once I hit the bed. I drank this ill-tasting tea for about a week and after one week, insomnia was gone.

Well I don't suffer from either of the ones you mentioned. But I DO suffer from sleep apnea. During the night I will actually stop breathing while I am asleep. My wife hears me but hey if I'm gonna die I hope it is in my sleep.

none that are 100% proven to be genetic, although there can be some genetic factors. Honestly, it's a mix of lots of things. Think about it: if evolution and natural selection did happen what would be the benefit in a genetic mental disorder? here are some that are thought to have some genetic factors: Depression Postpartum depression Schizophrenia Dysthymia Delusional disorder
