10 pm looses it

OK, my lays on the couch around 6:30 pm watching tv.

10:00 She gets up and goes to the bathroom, 25feet, when she gets up to return she looses it and I have to hold her up.
8:30 same as above, but everything is ok
Tried delaying the evening medication, but no change.

Then to the bedroom to wash up. After brushing her teeth, starts going all over and rushes to the bed before falling. Waits a few minutes, goes back and washes her face. Starts going all over rushes to bed again. This continues until finished. It seems as if her legs are spasming all over.

ideas welcome.

    1. As Suzanne Troy said you are both going through so very much. Do you think a referral to a counselor might be helpful for you in learning how to cope with a very difficult
      situation? There may be way to help her with some way of stopping the constant repetition and relax. What does your movement disorder specialist advise? Please keep us informed as to how she is doing and please remember to try to take care of yourself.

      1. Hi Bob How are you and your wife doing? Have you found a way to calm her anxiety ?
        Hopefully you have found some relief and perhaps come up with a different routine for her to follow. After getting into bed would a meditation or soothing music help ? I am concerned at the frenzy it must be causing her and the impact on you as well. Please let us know if we can be of help in any way and stay in touch.This community cares about both of you.Thea
