Do Sleep Problems Lead to Parkinson’s? - Parkinson’s Diseases 14

 Two chairs, just for illustration

We talked about connection between smell loss and Parkinson’s (please read: Smell Loss may Lead to Parkinson’s - Parkinson’s Diseases 11).

Reports recently said that sleep problems might relate to early stages of Parkinson’s Diseases as well.

Some sleep problems are:

- insomnia

- sleep apnea and narcolepsy

- sporadic movements during sleeping.

- nightmares


These sleep problems are believed due to neurological system disorders. The problems may stimulate Parkinson’s to develop gradually, and without notice some times.

There are OTC drugs to help sleep problems, they are sold in drug stores and big groceries such as Walmart. Some of them are:

- Dodow

- Vitafusion (Melatonin gummies)

- Vicks ZzzQuil (Nighttime Sleep Aid LiquiCaps)

- Happy Sleeper

- Equate (Strength Nighttime Sleep Aid Softgels)

- Hyland’s Rest


Drugs just to temporarily relieve of sleeping problem, not really solve the problem. Neither do drugs solve the problem of Parkinson’s diseases.


Both sleep disturbance and Parkinson’s diseases will continue over time. Symptoms of early stages of Parkinson’s diseases are:

- tremor at one hand

- stiffness

- slowing movement.


Finally, be careful with sleep problems in long term, just consult to a physician to make sure that no association with Parkinson’s or other diseases.

  2. Tanza, I sleep like a rock...falling asleep within 5 minutes after lying down and while I do dream a lot, the dreams are just a little weird or even interesting, never nightmares. OK for now then... Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  14. Just one more thing to keep me up at night now...=). I have been doing bedtime yoga as of late. I think it has helped. Unfortunately, the raccoons are back on the roof and they wake me up! Sounds like a band of monkeys! Definitely, an interesting post!
