Hi. I’m looking for help for my 7 yr old son. His restless leg has come back (we’ve been free of it for 6 months), and the restless nights and missing school have started again.
This time, there was a clear trigger. He had 2 teeth pulled. He was given codine, followed by 4 days of eating McDonald’s frenchfries and ice pops (so terrible diet bc he couldn’t chew). Also, the codine caused constipation, so he’s been taking miralex and suppositories (which worked last time arbor getting rid of his restless leg).
His anxiety is three the roof and he’s having panic attacks at night now over small things.
Does anyone have any ideas Here? Like what caused this to start up again? Was it the anxiety of having his teeth pulled? Or the codine? Or diet?
