Periodic limb movements in sleep are followed by increases in EEG activity, blood pressure, and heart rate during sleep


Periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMS) are related to arousal, sympathetic activation, and increases in blood pressure (BP), but whether they are part of the arousal process or causative of it is unclear.
