Rough nights sleep
mrouse99 posted:
Hi all, I was hoping somebody might be able to give me some insight. Throughout my life I've been told by multiple people that I move a lot in my sleep. It's always been a joke until I recently found out that my significant other is losing out on sleep because of my moving around. Does anybody know a way to keep me from moving so much? I actually have very specific movements that I regularly perform. I spin into blankets wrapping myself up like a burrito, I extend my arm and push away from things (people, walls, tables, etc.), and I tend to kick. I've been told that I DO snore however it's very light. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you thank you thank you!

I talk and move around acting out my dreams - whether they are good ones of bad. I sometimes end up with my feet at the head of the bed and my head at the foot of the bed. Pillows are usually on the floor because I have kicked them off.
You might want to ask your doctor about REM behavior disorder. I've had it for the last 11 years and my husband has lost a lot of sleep over it. It helps to have another room to go to so he can rest.
Good luck!
