I have the same condition. Quite violent twitching. I believe it is something to do with my vivid dreams. The twitching can also develop into flailing arms and kicking feet. My advice is.........seperate beds. Sorry, but it can be dangerous for your other half. You may also find yourself falling out of bed. When I had my full sleep test, the nurses fitted bed guards along the sides of the bed. Not so much for my benefit, but more to prevent any possible compensation claim if I fell out of bed while in the sleep unit.
You will have to give some serious thought to what you must do. The fact that you are twitching shows that you cannot control your body while asleep and your body is starting to display episodes of physical activity beyond that control. You may be partly aware of the twitching, but can you risk it if you are asleep when it happens?
Your other half will be able to tell you more about your twitching than you. It may be that you do it more than you know.
I think you'll both have to be brutally honest about your sleep and the twitching.
Yes, I recently started having VERY vivid dreams. Basically, I stopped smoking 'recreational fags' - which had featured in my life for 18 odd years.
Now I have the maddest, most vivid dreams I have ever had.
I am not at all aware of the twitching, it's driving her mad.
We've only been together 7 months, seperate beds seems a horrible solution...
Maybe I should go to my doctor?
Thanks, really good to find I am not alone!
