I was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s at the age of 44, and I have been living with the symptoms of young onset Parkinson’s for 8 years. The amount of sleep I am getting is ok. I am averaging 8 hours of sleep at night and I am not sleeping during the day. My sleep patterns have changed since having young onset Parkinson’s, and I go to bed earlier. My sleep patterns are sometimes affecting my partner. The factors impacting on my ability to sleep include REM Sleep Behaviour and talking or yelling out while asleep. Strategies that have been useful or could be useful in improving my sleep patterns include increasing exercise during the day, tracking my sleep patterns, going to bed and waking up at the same time every day and having a bedtime routine.
