Symptoms of possible early onset
My husbands father had alzheimers and his older brother waa diagnosed at age 55 with early onset. naturally i worry about my husband.
All of a sudden his sleep pattern has changed. While asleep he now has rythmatic body jerking that can go on for hours. His entire body or certain body limbs will jerk in this rythmatic pattern. He is scheduled for a sleep study next friday and im hoping the data will reveal something. Ive been sleeping with him for close to 33 years and this new sleep pattern has just started within the last couple months. It will awaken me from a deep sleep usually one hear after going to sleep and it can keep me up because it jerks the entire bed. He does nto wake from it but it will get so bad i will have to go to another room just to get some sleep. If anyone knows anything about this or possible association with alzheimers
