My fiance does this.  He thrashes and kicks and sometimes punches (thankfully, not me so far) in his sleep.  I’ve done some research and I think he has a sleep disorder called RBD, where he acts out his dreams.  When I’ve woken him up during the thrashing, punching, etc. he always tells me that he’s having a dream where he’s punching someone, or catching a fly ball….I think that meds like Xanax have been known to help.  It can be very disruptive, and even scary, for the partner!  I’ve become kind of used to it, though.

Also I woke up just as a fist was coming towards my face in the middle of the night… WTF?

@tmsing:  My ex’s dad had PTSD from being in the war and would “act out” his dreams to the point that he almost strangled his wife in the middle of the night. He went to the doctor and got Trazadone so he doesn’t dream anymore.

@tmsing:  Yes! That shit hurts! And it’s terrifying! He’s a terrible sleeper… Sleep talking, hitting, thrashing, snoring… Yell

I uppercut my fiance in his sleep. While he had a toothache. He was screaming in agony the rest of the night.

@tmsing:  Maybe ask your doc about a low dose of something like trazadone?

@tmsing:  this is one of the reasons why my husband and I sleep in separate rooms. I beat the crap out of him in my sleep and he snores like a monster.

@tmsing:  Ear plugs don’t make you unable to hear, they just kinda muffle things. I sleep with them in, and believe me I hear my alarm when it goes off.
