Not a few people who like to kick or beat unconscious when she was sleeping. Scientists warned, kicked and hit during sleep may be early signs of disease
dementia (dementia) and Parkinson’s.
Dementia is a syndrome characterized by impaired cognitive function without disturbance of consciousness. Disturbances occur only in intelligence, memory, language, problem solving, orientation and concentration.
While Parkinson’s is a degenerative disease characterized by tremors or uncontrolled body movements, such as tremor, muscle stiffness as well. In certain cases caused by toxins, head injury and drugs.
According to research, people who like to kick and beat during sleep are more likely to develop dementia and Parkinson’s disease. From this sleep habits, can predict the existence of dementia and Parkinson’s, even 50 years before the disease is diagnosed.
Researchers have found a relationship between people with REM sleep behavior (rapid eye movement) and the condition of the brain a few years later.
REM sleep is the stage when people are usually dreaming. Most people become ‘disabled’ during this phase of sleep because the brain closing muscles.
But if people experience REM sleep disorder, the sleep is often moving and even with violent movements. Usually people with REM sleep disorder is often hitting his sleeping partner or falling out of bed.
From the research that has been published in the medical journal Neurology, there is evidence that certain sleep disorders may be a predictor of brain disease. This allows physicians to diagnose disease long before it occurs.
By using records from the Mayo Clinic, researchers identified 27 people with REM sleep disorder at least 15 years before he had Parkinson’s disease, dementia or multiple system atrophy of (a brain disorder similar to Parkinson’s).
The result, obtained that span of time between commencement of symptoms of sleep disorders and brain diseases ranging up to 50 years, with an average span of 25 years.
