Early Symptoms/RBD/Dyskinesia


#1

Hi,
I am 39 years old.
I have REM behavior Disorder for 20 plus years.
Earlier this week my eyes started clenching shut, and then different parts of my body in the last few days have started tremoring and jerking, starting with my right hand.
I had reoccurring tonsil infections and tight neck/shoulders before this.
I feel very weak and I am scared because I don’t know what my body is doing. I tested negative for strep by the way and no infection as of now.
Did anyone else have similar beginning symptoms. This seems so sudden.
Any input is super helpful.
Thank you!
Jessica
