I am writing this question at 3.30 a.m. I was diagnosed about 6 years ago and this has not been a problem for me, until recently. I know that an awful lot of people have become 'night owls' and I have recently joined you.
I seem to sleep for about 3 hours, wake and have just recently started taking an extra tablet. Sometimes, I then sleep for short periods, sometimes not. I have always needed my 8 hours sleep as,unlike my husband, I cannot cat nap during the day.
As tiredness is one of the symptoms of PD, why is sleep so difficult?
At the moment my 'official, day starts at 5,30 a.m. so am really shattered by evening. I should sleep like a log, but I don't. Am hoping that this is only a passing phase, but maybe not.
When diagnosed was told that tremor is not active when you are asleep, so this can't be waking me.
I realise that no one has the answer to this question and can only think my brain is getting more scrambled!!
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
