REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (cont.)

Questions to Ask the Doctor

Consider asking your doctor the following questions:

Also consider whether your bedmate needs to be reassured by a professional about your condition. Having the bed partner attend the appointment may be beneficial to discuss the behaviors and other concerns.
