Recommended Posts

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,

When I am anemic I jump , like restless legs and my arms can do it too. Also, any night I run in my sleep and kick hard. My poor husband!

Take Care!

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:

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


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl
