Shaking In Polycystic Kidney Disease

Hypertensive, stage 3 Polycystic kidney disease, have Hashimoto. Feel tingling, shaking while sleeping. What to do ?

I am a 67yr old adopted female. I have hypertension & stage 3 Kidney Disease. Diagnosed 2 years ago. I also have Hasimotos Thyroid Disease. My thyroid & 2 tumors were removed in 1972.

Since June 6 2012, during the night when I sleep I experience tremors, vibrations, pain? They wake me up, & I experience tingling all over, pin pricks, shaking. It only happens when I sleep at night. On 3 occasions I’ve had to go to the ER. I have been to an excellent Neurologist. I am taking Gapapentin at night, & I have had Sleep Studies, EEG, MRI’s, (brain, spine) lab work etc. Steroidal injections in my neck and face. My bones feel week in my upper body. No Parkinsons or MS diagnosed. I’m really concerned, because I have 6 children & 24 grandchildren I want to hang around for a long time. Do you have any suggestions? I also see my hypertension & kidney doctor regularly & I have blood work ups done. No one has any answers for me. The Doctors just shrug their shoulders & I just deal with it. Also my Parathyroid #’s are high. I’ve seen an Endocrinologist for that.
