Rhythmic Movement Disorder

I am 31 and I have RMD and am relieved to find I am not alone. My entire life it has been a source of anxiety about sleep overs and sharing a bed with someone... but I cannot help otit... i have the full on body rolling while on my stomach. I do it before sleep and wake up still rolling back and forth. If I try to restrict it I cannot sleep at all. I will admit i actually like it. it brings me peace and is almost zen like for me. I find myself in a calm and deep meditative state before I finally fall asleep. I do suffer from insomnia pretty badly if i cannot roll... the ONLY fix I have found for this is some marijuana before bed. alcohol makes it worse, sleep meds do not work on me and finally anxiety meds make me feel blocked in a sense- almost deaddened... I am happily married to a heavy sleeper but I am overly cautious about when I roll... I usually wait until he is asleep or I will try to go to bed first. usually I wait until he is asleep.
