Hi there, i am male and too aged 37. Sometimes when i am lying in bed trying to go to sleep, i feel my entire body shaking, but when i outstretch my fingers they are dead still.
I did find some information about it, however it was very vague and not conclusive it was anything related to a sleep disorder. Also i find the shaking relaxing now as i have had it for as long as i can remember and with me it usually indicates i am about to fall asleep.
Maybe you could try thinking the same, try not to worry and see if it too helps you to get to sleep. i think half the battle is telling yourself there is nothing wrong and I AM going to sleep. Using positive thoughts could be the help you need. I am not an expert, what works for me may not work for you.
Good luck, please keep me informed
I am not really worried about it, more curious. I am so tired every day because I don't get good sleep, so I walk around like a zombie most of the time... lol Except on the weekends where I can sleep later, I guess because I stay in bed longer and make up for some of the restless sleep I have.
The only difference in betwenn you and I is that I am already asleep when this happens, I had no idea this was happening until my boyfriend moved in with me ans told me it was happening, I always thought it was just my nightmares causing me to have restless sleep.
Thanks for the reply :)
