Insomnia and Parkinson's

Posted on April 02, 2018

"If I do get sleep its only for a few hours and then I'm up for the rest of the day. I had to stop work a few years ago and that is tough. We're all here for each other. Hope you have a better night's sleep." -A member of MyParkinsonsTeam

On MyParkinsonsTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with Parkinson's disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Insomnia is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about insomnia:

How many PD suffers out there are or were at one time 3rd shift workers?

Have you heard of strategic light therapy for Parkinson's disease?

Does anyone have suggestions regarding staying asleep?

Does anyone else use Melatonin as their first medication (after addressing sleep hygiene issues) for insomnia?

Here are some conversations about insomnia:


Add to that the gray cloud of insomnia hanging over me all the time.

Is anyone dealing with insomnia and what are you doing for it?

Can you relate?

Has anyone tried edibles instead of vaping or smoking?? No judgement whatever you use. Edibles work great for me.
