My mum is getting a lot of pain in her lower legs that she describes as ‘like pins and needles’. This wakes her up at night and she gets out of bed to sleep in the lounge.
She’s currently in hospital but slept better with no pins and needles. Could this be down to the bed she has?
Has anyone changed to a profiling bed and found it very useful?
I’m really sorry to hear that your mum is going through this discomfort. It’s tough to see our loved ones in pain, especially when it affects their sleep.
While I’m not a medical expert, I want to suggest that it might be beneficial to have a chat with her GP or Parkinson’s nurse about her situation. They’ve got the knowledge to assess her condition and recommend the best options for her comfort, whether it’s related to the bed or something else.
