This week on the Sleep Well blog, Dr. Breus explains the connection between Parkinson's Disease and Sleep . Did you know that "Researchers found that one of the earliest symptoms of Parkinson's may be a REM sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD)"?

To find out more about the link between the two, and to learn more about the causes and symptoms of RBD, read the full posting.

Do you know anyone with RBD? What were their symptoms?
