My husband told me this morning that I screamed out so loud last night that our neighbors could have heard me. I don't remember dreaming about anything. Usually, when I dream, it will wake me up or I wake myself up talking or screaming. Kind of scary but have a neuro appointment on Monday and will discuss it then.
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member, I have moved into a separate room, I bought a used double bed at an antique shop for $79, and bought a mattress/boxspring (serta), and I love it! I've been in this room a little over a week and have not experienced such vivid dreams. I have dreamed, but haven't woke myself up. We also had bought a baby monitor when Jim's mother was sick so her daughter could hear call out if need be. Since she passed away, her daughter gave it back to us. I set the control part in my room, and the other part in my husband's room. He wears a C-Pap at night and his sugar tends to drop at night, so I can hear him if he begins to choke, or his sugar bottoms out. or even listen as he breathes on the C-pap. He can just call out to me if he needs me for anything. We are both sleeping better.
I was just like that before I was Dx,Thrashing around the bed and had punched my wife while sleeping,My wife said I wasn't aware of it,My Defense.lol.Now, well almost 15 years on Sinement I no longer thrash around while sleeping,I had read one time that could be a first sign Parkinsons can be present,Not all cases it's Parkinsons could be stress. restless leg,What Miraplex is really used for.hope your able to sneak some winks to rest up.Bill
Hi. My husband has Parkinson's going on 26 yrs now. He used to have terrible dream He would act them out. I got hit and kicked many times. Had to wake him up. Sometimes he would go right back into dream. It was crazy. He was put on clonazepam. It controls those dreams. He was put on 0.5 mg but half of that at night works great . Hope this helps someone with the dreams.
My Doctor calls it vivid dreams, fell out of bed three times. We bought a bed rail, it is about 15 inches wide. I still can get out out easily. So I have not fallen since we bought the bed rail.
Yes I have had vivid and violent dreams. I have jumped, fallen, and kicked myself out of bed. Have kicked my husband talked and yelled. Saw a neurologist who said I had a sleep disorder. That was about 6 yrs ago. 2016 diagnosed with PD.
