    Unfortunately, restless legs while trying to sleep at night, can be a symptom of Friedreich’s Ataxia. Twitchy leg movement or numbness/pain can result in a sleepless night.

    A weighted blanket can help with these symptoms to lessen the chance of them happening.

    Have you ever tried using a weighted blanket? Would you recommend it to others?

    My son who has FA tried one. He liked the feeling of it but he moves around a lot in his sleep and he had a hard time pulling it up and keeping it in place.
