レム睡眠行動障害(レムすいみんこうどうしょうがい、REM sleep behavior disorder、RBD)とは、通常の行動や認知に問題はないが、レム睡眠の時期になるたびに体が動き出してしまう睡眠障害の1つ[1][2]。睡眠時随伴症に分類される[3]。突発性の睡眠障害で50~60代以上に多く見られる[1]。, レム睡眠時には脳は覚醒時に近い活動をしており、全身の骨格筋は緊張が低下している。そのため、通常であれば夢で見たことを行動に起こすことはないが、レム睡眠行動障害は何らかの原因で筋緊張の抑制が障害されるために夢で見たことをそのまま行動に移してしまう[2]。, 粗大な四肢や体幹の運動、寝言(叫ぶ、泣く、笑う)や攻撃的運動、立ち上がって動き回るなどの異常行動がみられる[1][2]。20~30分が経過しレム睡眠が終わると再び通常の睡眠に戻る[1]。, 基礎疾患として、脳幹部の脳腫瘍、パーキンソン病、オリーブ橋小脳萎縮症、レヴィー小体病などいくつかの原因が考えられている[2]。しかしながら、約半数は基礎疾患を持たず、原因不明である。, 重要なのは寝言や睡眠時の異常行動が本人の見ていた夢と一致することである[2]。自覚的には人や動物に追いかけられたといった悪夢が多く、その内容と異常行動は概ね一致する[1]。異常行動中またはその直後に声をかけたり体を揺さぶると完全に目覚めさせることができる[1]。睡眠時の異常行動としてよく知られるものに夢中遊行症(夢遊病)とdeliriumがあるが、これらは速やかに覚醒させることが困難で多くの場合行動中の記憶はない点で異なる[1]。, クロナゼパムが第一選択とされてきたが、より安全で忍容性のあるメラトニンの使用を支持する証拠が増加しており、両者の証拠を確立するためにさらなる試験が必要である[5]。, なお、レム睡眠行動障害では無意識に素早い暴力的動作を伴うこともあり、同室者に暴力を振るったり、室内のドアなどを壊す場合も少なくないため注意を要する[1]。, “Melatonin therapy for REM sleep behavior disorder: a critical review of evidence”, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4306603/, https://ja.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=レム睡眠行動障害&oldid=80479391. This involves making the bedroom a safe place by removing nightstands and sharp objects. The former is related to dreams and it is one of the most important components of the entire cycle.

The study found evidence REM sleep behavior disorder is a prodromal phenotype for the body-first type. Physical and neurological exam. Unlike sleepwalking or night terrors, you can recall your dreams upon waking. However, its usually harder to wake up from a sleepwalking episode than an RBD episode. It involves abnormal behavior during the sleep phase with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. The major feature of RBD is loss of muscle atonia (i.e., the loss of paralysis) during otherwise intact REM sleep (during which paralysis is not only normal but necessary). Typically, the body shuts off muscle activity during REM sleep; however, with RBD, muscle activity and dream enactment occur during REM sleep. REM sleep is the stage of sleep in which most vivid dreaming occurs. It would take place for about 90 minutes to as much as 2 hours every night. The neurodegenerative synuclein aggregation disorders, namely Parkinson’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and multiple system atrophy (MSA), all have a prodromal interval; that is, a period during which neurodegenerative symptoms/signs are present, but full clinical disease has not yet developed (Berg et al., 2015).

In the synucleinopathies, this interval is notably long, often exceeding a decade (Berg et al., 2015). These dreams are often very vivid and can involve a wide range of movements.

REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a non-motor and sleep-specific disorder associated with Parkinson’s. In general, treatment of REM behavior disorder is focused on keeping the affected person and others safe. 睡眠はREM(レム)睡眠とNREM(ノンレム)睡眠に分けられます。REMは英語の”Rapid Eye Movement(急速眼球運動)”の頭文字をとったものです。いわゆる、夢を見ている状態です。一晩の間に3~5回、おおよそ90分間隔で出現します。1回のREM睡眠は数分程度のこともあれば、1時間前後に及ぶこともあります。夢を見ているときに目玉がくるくる動いているため、この名称が付けられました。, REM睡眠の特徴の一つは、脱力状態になることです。夢見に関わる脳の神経活動は高まっていますが、手足は脱力状態で、思うように動かせない「金縛り」が生じています。REM睡眠時、この脱力状態にならずに、夢の通りに行動してしまう病気がREM睡眠行動障害です。夢の内容次第では自分自身がケガをする、もしくはベッドパートナーにケガさせてしまったり、周囲の物を壊すこともあります。, 通常、50歳以降に、早い場合は40代から症状が目立つようになります。REM睡眠時の問題だけでなく、目が覚めているときでもにおいが分からなくなることや便秘が目立つこともあります。一部の人はパーキンソン病やレビー小体型認知症を併発していることもあり、これらの病気の初期症状として発症することがあります。そのため、これらの疾患や異常の合併がないか、初診時だけでなく、5年、10年単位の長期にわたって注意することが必要です。, 夜間の行動が激しい場合には、動きを抑制するために抗けいれん薬に分類されるクロナゼパムが使用されます。これは、多くの睡眠薬や抗不安薬と同じ種類の薬剤です。不眠の改善が期待される一方で、眠気やふらつきなどに注意が必要です。睡眠時無呼吸症候群がある場合には、無呼吸が重症化することもあります。漢方薬の抑肝散を含めて、複数の薬剤が有効です。, 睡眠時に「寝言が激しい」「けんかしているように手足を動かしている」ことで気付かれることがほとんどです。動きの直後に目が覚めると、行動を反映する夢を見ていたことが確認されます。言い争っている夢の場合には、普段は考えられないような大声で怒鳴ったり、パンチを繰り出したりします。横に寝ているベッドパートナーを殴ってしまうこともあります。追われている夢の場合には、布団から飛び出してケガをすることもあり、頭を打って慢性硬膜下血腫の原因となることもあります。睡眠中の危険な行動が出現する際には、早急に睡眠障害の専門施設を受診することをお勧めします。, この病気は、ビデオ監視下での睡眠検査(ポリソムノグラフィー)を行うことで診断されます。嗅覚検査や心臓交感神経系の検査でも異常が認められることがあります。この場合には、特にパーキンソン病やレビー小体型認知症への進行や併存の有無に注意が必要です。, 抗うつ薬を服用している場合にもこの病気が出現することがあります。睡眠障害の専門医だけでなく、薬剤を処方する主治医の先生にも相談の上で、薬剤の漸減・中止の可能性を検討することをお勧めします。, 飲酒が症状に影響します。アルコールは睡眠前半にはREM睡眠を抑制する一方で、代謝される睡眠後半にはREM睡眠の時間が長くなることがあります。このため、飲酒した日の夜には睡眠中の行動が激しくなることがあります。逆に、節酒や禁酒をすることで行動が目立たなくなります。, また、ケガをしないための予防策も大切です。ベッドを使用している場合、転落しないように柵を使用することや、ベッドの高さを低くすることでケガを避けることができるかもしれません。畳に布団を敷くことでベッドが関わる問題は回避できます。布団から飛び出した際の対策として、周囲に壊れやすい物やケガの原因となるような物を置かないことも重要です。, ※所属・役職は本ページ公開当時のものです。異動等により変わる場合もありますので、ご了承ください。, 済生会本部 : 〒108-0073 東京都港区三田1-4-28(三田国際ビルヂング21階) TEL: 03-3454-3311 / FAX: 03-3454-5576.

During REM sleep, one should not be able to move any muscles. Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a condition in which you act out your dreams while you sleep. In a person with REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), the paralysis that normally occurs during REM sleep is incomplete or absent, allowing the person to "act out" their dreams. Disruptions to REM sleep can cause various symptoms, such as drowsiness during the day, trouble thinking clearly and mood disorders such as depression or anxiety. レム睡眠行動障害 (レムすいみんこうどうしょうがい、REM sleep behavior disorder、RBD)とは、通常の行動や認知に問題はないが、 レム睡眠 の時期になるたびに体が動き出してしまう 睡眠障害 の1つ 。.
