8. Trouble Sleeping

Tossing and turning even while deeply asleep can be a sign of Parkinson's. Some individuals may even fall out of bed during the night. This symptom interrupts sleep patterns and decreases sleep quality, which can exacerbate other symptoms. Half of all people with Parkinson's disease have muscles that do not completely relax during sleep. This increases the risk of leg cramps and abnormal leg movements at night. Some people even "act out" their dreams by moving their limbs. It is also common for people with Parkinson's to experience excessive sleepiness during the day.
