Hello and hope you are doing well.

Yes, you can have both. Your symptoms of moving your limbs in sleep could be due to a sleep disorder called Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD). They disrupt sleep and cause involuntary movements during sleep. The cause is not known. They can be diagnosed with a sleep study and medications help to control them. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
