Sleeping Related Rhythmic Movement Disorder
Ok. This is a question and a story. My name is Gabriela and I am 14 almost 15 years of age. Ever since I can remember my parents have told me that I banged my head on my pillow when I slept. One day I wanted to find out if what I had, had a name so I searched. I found out that I might have a Sleeping Related Rhythmic Movement Disorder (RDM). I also found that it usually stops by the age of three and that it might not be RDM, but it might be early signs of Epilepsy. What can you tell me about my condition and what sould I do from here?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Do you still bang your head? Rhythmic movement disorder persisting into adulthood may be restricted to REM sleep or may be associated with REM sleep disorders. So, if you still have persisting symptoms, consult your doctor for an evaluation, who may then refer you to a sleep specialist if needed.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
