Studies suggest that REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) may be caused by specific neural pathways in the brain, although sleep experts are uncertain of the exact cause.
There is a theory that REM-sleep paralysis is caused by the disruption of specific neural pathways in the brain. Also, RBD frequently coexists with other neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia.
In most cases, RBD often occurs before the onset of one of these neurodegenerative illnesses.
Keep watching as we take a look at the link between RBD and Parkinson’s and the steps you can take these debilitating diseases.
