Bed shaking at night (Page 14)


October 31st, 2016
Um, yes beds shake or vibrate, AND people have spasums in there legs. But there is more to this dynamick. Wile there is a medical ilnes that causes a persons legs to twitch in the night, there is also a balance responce. A lerned mussile spasum, which is compleatly normal.
This muscile spasum is much like "sea legs". Basicaly a person who spens much time out at sea will develope a subcauncious responce to the ship always moving. But when they return to dry land they staggar and stumble becaus there brain is still aclimated to the movment of a ship.
In a similar way a persons brain will try to adapt to the motions of bed vibration. This results in there legs actualy shaking. It is actualy quite normal and after a person moves away from there vibrating environment the symptoms of bed vibration slowly deminish as well.

However this does not give comfort to people who are sleep deprived. To these people i say;
Bed vibration is usualy worse at the foot of the bed. Reorientate yourself to sleep crosways at the head of your bed. This might allow yousome sleap. Others may find refuge from more sevear forms of floor vibration by sleaping on the flore directaly parallen to an exterrior wall.
The next idea i have for living with floor/bed vibration is to get an air mattress. The mattress will likaly vibrate also, but those vibrations will be directed away from directaly beneath you and shift to a uniform sensation on your sides. A significant improvement and at only 25$ from wallmart a good quick solution. Be forwarned even with exelent care an air mattress will only last about a month.

For more info do a search on you tube for "vibration proof bed"

I can relate to your situation!
My case was a bit different I had problems with sleeping with someone in one bad. I could start strangling or hit my girlfriend while I was asleep. yeah, that's horrible. And the thing which helped me was a hypnosis, it calmed me down in somehow and cured me. I was listening to Sleephypnopil hypnosis sessions. And it's a godsend

The same thing happened to me, and I found a way to get rid of it. It is a bit unorthodox but for me it is worth it. What I do is use another source of vibration that vibrates faster than the bed does from the unknown source and put that on my bed when I go to sleep. I am currently using an old 10 inch 600 watt pioneer speaker with the cone removed and cap still in place and powered by a car battery charger. This creates a fairly strong electromagnetic field and a stronger source vibration.

I'm not sure if it is the electromagnetic field or the vibration of it or a combination of both that prevents the unknown vibrations. This also works when I feel like there is something inside of me vibrating as well. I just put the powered speaker to the location of the vibrating and it gets rid of it.

I have also used small fans and even a transformer which also work, but not as well as the speaker. I can only speculate how and why these things work, so I'm not going to bother with my opinions about it. I just know that it helps me sleep better at night.

If you attempt to wire up a source vibration make sure you know what you are doing before hand, because if you don't it can be a fire hazard. If anyone finds a way to improve on this, please post it here. I wouldn't mind making an even more powerful source vibrator to combat this, and I'm sure other might appreciate it as well.

Thanks.

Muenstermash, the literal exact same thing just happened to me this morning. I thought it was an earthquake, but here in CT we don't get many except for a couple times about 3 years ago. So I know what it feels like. I thought I could here stuff in my room rattling like it was about to fall. I checked the radar and there hasn't been any earthquake in months. I'm scared to go back to sleep in my bed. Ive never really been able to sleep well in my bed, so usually I just sleep on the couch and sleep fine. I thought my bed was just uncomfortable but a lot of these replys are freaking me out with all the spirit talk. I don't know what to do.

Ive been experiencing the 'bed shaking' for quite a while now. Must be nearing a few years, and i have experienced sleep paralysis many times before. However I know the difference and am always fully awake and aware when the bed shaking occurs. I am so happy to realise it happens to others though! Thought I was going crazy.

I find the bed shaking terrifying though do manage to get back to sleep sometimes after it occurs. The thing that frightens me the most is that I always check its not me shaking by looking at my body, sitting up, getting out of bed etc but its not my body.

Has anyone figured it out? Is there anyone to talk to, any remedies or solutions.

I like to think its not a spirit of any kind. But who knows.

Hoping someone will reply, this is the only place I've found others who experience the same as me!!!

Hello my fellow bed shakers,

I also experience movement at the bottom of my bed - not everyday - only sometimes. I can lay in my bed during the day and it won’t happen. It’s a night stalker of sorts.

I feel the shaking - I feel the pressure of someone or something sitting down - I feel my covers being pulled & I will always kick at whatever is causing the movements. But it keeps on happening.

I don’t think it’s a spirit of any kind - I think it’s the darn mattress itself. It’s one of those foam type mattresses. When I first got the mattress it was rolled up and had to sit for 24 hours to rise or do whatever it had to do before use.

So I’m inclined to believe whatever the mattress is made of continues to move because we are constantly reshaping the foam by sleepless nights of tossing and turning.

That’s my 2 cents on this bed shaking topic.

Cheers

I'm not convinced the bed shaking has anything to do with sleep paralysis since my husband has also felt the bed shake. He thought I was pleasuring myself and felt left out. However, I was laying there trying to ignore the shaking bed since I had had that experience several times before I got married. In the beginning I'd get up, look around my bed & around my room to find nothing. I'd get back into bed ignore the shaking and fall asleep. I was shocked when my husband could feel the shaking too. He's never had that happen to him before. Now it shakes when he's alone in bed sometimes. It doesn't happen to us all the time. As matter of fact it's been over a year. I don't know what it is or why it happens but I don't believe it's my body shaking.

Vibrations
I've had sleep paralysis before, that's not it. I've dabbled with astral projection, and this is very close to the same, but not quite. This happens more often when I'm very sleep deprived and/or stressed from work. I can be nearly wide awake and start to fall asleep, then become startled by the shaking and vibrating or if something external occurs (such as air raid sirens going off which happens in my area), I instantly enter into a panic attack to go with the vibrating. I just wanted to edit this and add that my resting pulse rate is 64 only a few minutes after this occurs. I can't ever seem to find my pulse when this happens. It feels like I am hyper and extremely anxious, and if I choose to remain laying down through it, the vibrations continue. I've researched "tremors", all I get are MS symptoms and Parkinsons, that's not it because I am perfectly healthy. I've had this on and off for years now, and it's only picking up pace recently, which is why I found this place to post. So far, the most I have narrowed it down to is sleep, diet, and stress. It's definitely NOT paranormal or religious.
