My Dad was diagnosed with psp just a year ago, but was seeing a neurologist for parkinsons a few years before that. He has never been a sound sleeper, but now he wakes, not kidding, sometimes 30 times a night. It is unbelievable. Sometimes he only sits in his chair for less than a minute before he is demanding to get up again. He takes trazadone, lyrica, requip, baclofen, and melatonin to help and still his best nights, which are rare, he is only sleeping 4 hours straight. More often he sleeps maybe an hour. Alot of it has to due with pain, general restlessness and the feeling like he has to pee all the time, even though half the time, he won't urinate when given the chance. Help.
