Protac Granulatdynen/søvnforstyrrelser

"I'm 46 years old and have Parkinson's. I have had it for 12 years now, and poor sleep is a big part of the disease. Parkinson’s is much more than being slow, shaky, and sluggish in the musculoskeletal system. It becomes something reminiscent of 12 years of poor sleep! I so want to sleep - just a single night without waking up. It's the dream! Parkinson's is due to a lack of the neurotransmitter Dopamine. Dopamine deficiency causes chaos throughout the chain of neurotransmitters in the brain that make us thinking and empathizing beings. That which characterizes us as human beings. Another of the substances there is also too little of in the brain is melatonin. The body's own sleep hormone. I'm missing that. I can fall asleep, but often wake up after a few hours, and then there is no more melatonin to fall asleep again. As a Parkinson's patient, you rarely dream, the sleep is simply not deep enough or long enough in the deep sleep. I am also a nurse and know the world of tactile stimulation. Being able to feel one’s body and one’s boundaries through firm pressure gives an enormous calm. Internal as well as external turmoil is greatly reduced for those with Parkinson's. If the pressure is wrong, it is only annoying and disturbs the nervous system wildly. I have tried several different blankets with minimal effect - they have not swaddled me enough, been too hot, too heavy, for “everything” and they have made noise. The latest attempt is the Protac Ball Blanket® Granulate and now I do not have to look any further, because it was just lovely under it. I quickly fall asleep, and I dream. I have not done that for years. Now I have been doing it several nights in a row. I still wake up at night - but there is a completely different feeling of calmness in my body. That blanket has made the unattainable dream possible - I have slept well. Several days in a row. Never mind that I wake up in between - the dreams have come back."
