The last two years I throw my body around. Sometimes I am laughing or making a grunting noise. Occasionally I will get on my knees and throw myself on the bed. It can happen once in the night or several times during the night. I have no memory of doing any of it. Occasionally I will know when my heart is beating out of my chest. I definitely am aware of it when I wake up the next morning and not feeling rested. My family can hear me throughout the house and are frightened by what they see and hear. It seems to have gotten worse and am doing in more frequently. I have been seeing family MD and she has given me progesterone and that hasn't helped. I am running on fumes and don't know how much longer I can go without sleep. I am a 45 female, not overweight, hypothyroidism, eats pretty healthy and drinks black coffee in the morning.
