I don't know about meds, but I saw the name of your disorder and had to ask. What do you do exactly? My husband many nights rocks side to side with one arm in the air. Apparently he's done this since childhood. Usually pushing him away or telling him to "roll over" or "stop rocking" will fix it for a while. He doesn't do it every night, thank God, but the nights he does do it, he seems to do it ALOT. He always rocks in my direction and I end up getting slapped with the flying right arm. It's like he needs it up for the extra rocking momentum! It doesn't seem to disturb his sleep. Only mine. LOL. What an initiation I had as a newlywed. :rolleyes:

Does this sound like your problem?

Lately he's not rocking as much, but begun to grind his teeth REALLY badly. Bad enough to wake me up. It's this horrible squeeking noise, just like fingernails on a chalkboard.
Yup!! That sounds exactly like what I do - My wife did have one cure that lets her sleep like a baby - I always "rock" one way also (To the left), so she bought a california king sized bed, and put me on the left side - She also got one of those matresses that you can jump on one side and it doesn't move the other side. This has helped alot. When we had a queen sized bed, she would have to tell me to stop 4-5 times per night, which made me angry, because I really am unaware I do it...

I'm like your husband in that I started it when I was about 9 months old and never stopped. I do it every night, and the more stress I have the harder I rock - sometimes to the point I wake up sore... :dizzy:

I think the name of the condition is something Jacatio Cranius Nocturnus?...

Thanx!
