Sleep Disorders – New Research Findings on Restless Leg Syndrome Medicine Trials

Writing about sleep medicines has not been a big part of my focus on how to improve sleep issues.  But these recent findings from the American Association of Neurology offer possible hope to those plagued with a sleep disorder that is neurological in origin, and deserve mention.  All research should be viewed with caution as an initial attempt to fit a small piece of data into a larger body of findings.  Only when it has been replicated by other research, or studied on a longer term basis, can its place in the body of science be understood.

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is not only a sleep disorder, but also a daytime problem which worsens at night, and, more importantly, interferes with the architecture of sleep by robbing the sufferer of the deeper stages of sleep.  This means that the person with RLS rarely gets a good night’s sleep and experiences all of the daytime maladies of lacking good restorative sleep. 

The main symptoms of RLS are creepy, crawly, tingling , burning or numbing sensations in the legs which underlie an urge to move the legs or to get up and walk to relieve the symptoms.  Walking or other activity does relieve the problem temporarily, but sensations return when the person is at rest.  When symptoms get worse at night, they interfere with the deeper stages of sleep, often awakening the person or their bed partner with kicking movements.  Diagnosis of this disorder is best made by a neurologist or through an overnight sleep study, where leg movements are actually recorded graphically, like an EEG or EKG.

Dr. Diego Garcia-Borreguerro, Director of the Sleep Research Institute in Madrid, Spain reported in April, 2009 on a study his clinic conducted, jointly funded by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. In his study, the medicine Pregabalin (aka Lyrica) was prescribed on a short term basis (12 weeks) to patients with RLS.  Findings were significant for 66 % of the study participants, for whom Pregabalin relieved all of their RLS symptoms while  those with remaining symptoms reported 66% improvement.

This particular medicine had already received FDA approval for and is currently being used to treat epilepsy, fibromyalgia, nerve pain and generalized anxiety.  Other medicines approved for treatment of RLS have shown great promise for short-term relief of symptoms, but often include the rebound effect of having symptoms return in even stronger form over the long term.  They all have in common that they treat through dopamine pathways, which Pregabalin does not, and, for the most part, do not improve the deeper stages of sleep. 

Perhaps the most optimistic aspect of this study is the finding of the restoration of Stages 3 and 4 sleep over the course of this short term study.  If this finding holds true for longer term use in other studies, it will be a remarkable aid to poor sleep worth examining.

NLP In Action DVD By Charles Faulkner

By taking the time to listen to the NLP In Action DVD by Charles Faulkner, you are given the power to change your life forever. This program uses what is called Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which is a name that literally encompasses three of the most important aspects of the human mind – neurology (Neuro), language (Linguistic), and programming (Programming – the way the brain works). The program works by providing a series of techniques in a language that influences human behavior.

The NLP In Action DVD is designed to use certain words that the human mind reacts to by creating the urge to literally do something about your life. NLP has been thoroughly studied, tested, and proven to work. The problem with people is that they perceive their lives inaccurately. The things that are happening in your life usually perceived by you as either good or bad. It is the way that you think which ultimately lies between you and what you want. Your mind creates your own reality, which therefore influences your future and everything that you do. You are literally creating your own destiny.

If the mind was programmed to perceive the things that normally make people angry, frustrated, and upset – calm, then their lives would be much less complicated. To get a good idea of how most people operate, all you have to do is look at your current life. You’re most likely not where you want to be. There may have very likely been some obstacles from outside influences standing in your way from time to time. However, the person who perceived those setbacks which have held you back all your life has been you.

The NLP In Action DVD by Dr. Charles Faulkner uses this technology to literally reprogram your mind so you do not perceive obstacles as setbacks, but rather, opportunities. Your mind is transformed from its old way of thinking into a newer, healthier state of mind. Ultimately, your entire life is changed, as well as you as a person.

When you change the way you think, you literally change the way you see things. To make things better, you change the way the world perceives who you are. People usually perceive a person as they perceive themselves. Because most people have been brought up to behave a certain way, as well as “taught” to react a certain way by watching television, their parents, and other outside stimuli, unfortunately, that is all they know. NLP In Action DVD by Dr. Charles Faulkner opens the mind to a new way of thinking and behaving that doesn’t have to bring constant disappointment in your life.

This DVD system gives you confidence. People toss the word, “confidence” around all of the time without really taking the time out to understand the meaning behind it. Being confident is knowing that what you are doing is exactly what you want. You’re confident about who you are, and because of that, everyone perceives you as a confident individual because you believe it – and because of your belief, it becomes your new reality – because you think it.
