REM Sleep Behavior Disorder and CPTSD
How many of you act out your nightmares? I’ve been known to scream, kick and punch during night terrors when our bodies should be paralyzed. I recently found out it is REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. I’ve done this since I was a child. I live alone, so I don’t have to worry about hurting a bed partner, but a couple weeks ago I did manage to kick my dog so hard she flew 2 feet off the bed. I felt horrible.
My med doctor just put me on Prazosin to help with this. She said it was from the CPTSD, and the drug would help. The only side effect I notice is that I am tired all day. Anyone else have this? Take medication? What’s your experience? #RBD #CPTSD #nightterrors
