Lately I have been very jumpy in my sleep. You know the way you jump if you dream that you are falling? Well I do it almost every night and now even when I nap. Does anyone else do this and if so what causes it and most importantly, what stops it??? I feel like a freak. Tom wakes up and asked me what I am doig I jump so bad. I really need to figure this one out b4 I end up on the couch lol I would have asked my Dr about it yesterday but I just didn't feel like he would understand.
Hugs,
Patty

Patty, you are just one of a kind. Why are you getting all the wierd symptoms? You not only get them but in triplicate. I do have the jump out of your skin jerks. But, mine only happen a few times a week. Sometimes they happen just as I am falling asleep also. I don't know what causes them. I don't know how a doctor would answer that question. I haven't looked it up to see if this is a condition that is noteworthy. If you do get a reasonable idea of a fix pass it along. We are just a little querky, thats all. Sheryl

Patty,

I'm not sure but is that what people call Restless Leg Syndrome? Am I crazy (uh, a perfectly possible explanation :lol: ) or can't that be related for some people?

I tend to "fall" like that as I drift off to sleep. My dear husband has done it over the years too. It's so annoying!

Patty~
I was wondering if you have been tested for anemia lately? My Gastro asks me if I suffer from RLS (restless leg syndrome) because I have anemia...so I think that there might be a link there.

Guess its the same question as Nan's but its worth a look see. Hope you are doing a little better!

I didn't know they could be related either. I have restless leg syndrome. I don't have anemia, knock on wood. I did as a young teen and into adulthood but haven't had a problem in years. I also have the sleep apnea that my machine is suppose to take care of. It is suppose to help with the restless leg syndrome also. So far I can't tell that it is doing much if anything. It has only been about 3 weeks so I am still ajusting. I was hoping I would be sleeping through most of the night by now. I am still awakened about 6 times per night that I am aware of. Our saga's are never ending, aren't they. Sheryl

Hi Patty,
I too have been jumpy (I mean real jumpy though), I have noticed it since I started back on Endep (amitryptline).
Some nights I actually jump out of bed and nearly go in the hallway, my husband then calls me back and I go back to bed and sleep straight away.

My problem is that I think that my son who is nearly 4 is calling me - and he isn't.

Take care
Celia :blink:

I don't jump, but I have had a severe run of RLS. I mentioned this morning to my family that I will probably have to break down and ask for some meds for it. I'm not getting ANY sleep.

Sweet, my cardiologist was hoping he wouldn't have to give me medicines for RLS. I will be seeing him again next month and he will read my card from the Bi-Pap machine. He will supposidly be able to tell me alot from this card. If RLS is still a problem he will prescribe something. I forgot what my options were because I so wanted the machine to work. I didn't want to risk my luck. It was something I had never heard of though. Let us know what helps you, if anything. Sheryl
