I was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s at the age of 48, and I have been living with the symptoms of young onset Parkinson’s for 3 years. I am not satisfied with the amount of sleep I’m getting. I am averaging 4 hours of sleep at night and 0.5 hours during the day. My sleep patterns have changed since having young onset Parkinson’s, and are maybe sometimes affecting my partner. The factors impacting on my ability to sleep are daytime sleepiness and frequent awakening. The strategies that have been useful or could be useful to improve my sleep patterns include increasing exercise during the day, going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, limiting daytime naps, adjustments to your medication as determined by your health professional, and also white noise.
