My advice:

First...don't let it stress you out..if its a ghost that is shaking your bed to wake you up and/or scare being upset/scared/ are feeding it.

Speak aloud to the 'ghost' let it know that it is unconditionally Loved (mean it/say it till you mean it). Bring its awareness it the Light constantly...remember no one is EVER alone...there are always beings around us offering us help.....just because you can't see or hear it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Ask for help, use a physical symbol to represent the cleansing of your home/space (smudging). ex: "I call upon the highest source of Light to cleanse this space and offer this being help in its transition towards the Light" or "The Light is awaiting you and sending you Love in every moment, know that in any moment you may move towards that Light, there are beings that want to help you.." Its all about intent, what do you intend? Being vocal is one thing...intent is must believe what you are saying..say it till you do...don't get down on yourself with doubtful thoughts.

Lastly make this an act of service, if you think its a obviously has a consciousness of its is obviously going through things just like you body or not, all beings are equally important. What can you do to improve this beings life? Have some compassion realize there are 'two sides to the story'.

You can do this, keep us updated.

I would also like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be of service to a fellow being (whether you take my advice or not)...I was feeling pretty down before I posted this...but now I am actually feeling alot better..

I'm not sure if you saw my other post, but I have one more thing to add..
The bed shaking might be caused by your pulse, especially the one from the abdominal aorta. It's a strong pulse and very plausible that is what's causing the shaking. Try laying/sitting in different positions and see what happens.

By the way, I am most definitely a believer in the paranormal, having experienced some odd things myself, but I still think it's a good idea to rule out any mundane explanations first. Good luck finding answers!

i have had some wierd things happen in my house such as doors opening by them selves right infront of me, lights turn on and off by themselfes, also sometimes it sounds like a dog is whining in the room next to me at night but i know for sure that there is no dogs in that room, its pretty creepy sometimes but i dont let it bother me. my house used to be a halfway house or something like that. it was built sometime in the 1800s.

Hey creatureme!

- Do you actually feel like there is someone in the room? Not everyone can feel the presence of "others", but if you have ever been able to, you will be able to narrow down the section of the room this visitor is located.

- Do you have any loved ones who have passed on who used to comfort you when you were small?

- When the rocking occurs, do you feel anything that could be construed as emotion - from outside of yourself?

- Does the rocking only occur when you are trying to sleep at night? Or has it ever happened when you were trying to take a nap?

- How old is the place you live?

- Have you watched your dog to see if she pays more attention to certain areas of the room than others?

- Have you tried speaking directly to the room? ("Hello, I can see that you are trying to get my attention, but I don't know what you want. I appreciate that you're trying to speak to me in the ways that you can, but I can't sleep when you're rocking my bed. Please stop rocking the bed.")

Honestly, when I've met with a harmless spirit who was moving papers around or dropping books or whatever, telling them to stop usually does the trick.

I do not communicate nicely when I feel malevolence, though. I weave a shield of protective words around myself. You can use the power of whatever has made you feel safe in your life. ("I am protected by the love of my grandmother, her hands soothed me as a child and her love has touched me and marked me. I will not be harmed by you, and I cast you out of my space by my own power and love. Leave my home, you are not invited. The love of this home will not be marred by your malevolence. Leave, now.")

I hope you get some great footage, if possible!

Did not catch any movements on the film, sorry! still gonna try the sound recordingthingy on wednesday/thursday tho

No, When this happens I can't seem to feel/sense anything watching me or trying to get my attention. I tried to talk to ''the shaking'' and I guess it calmed down a bit - but that can be just my imagination. The rocking only occurs when trying to sleep in the bed at night - never in the couch in the livingroom, sleeping there at night or napping at daytime.

I talked to my sister about this and we may have come to the conclusion that it actually can be me doing this, even tho my body is not moving physically. She told me she experienced the same thing at some point in her life. Astrithr mentioned something about abdominal pulse - but why does it only happen in bed?

I have been sleeping very badly for the last couple of months, I have anxeiety and probably are about to burst from keeping so much energy in my body by sitting home alot. I also have a red light in the bedroom, according to my sister - red is the worst color you can keep in the bedroom. And I have kept it left on every night. (scared of the dark)

So - hehe, I have now bought bluish dimmed lights to use in the bedroom. I have moved the bed and introduced the bedroom with two brand new white nightstands. I am also going to exercise regularly from now on. The plan from now on is to try to affect myself with the chakracolours suitable for each room, trying to balance my energy. Good idea huh?
Even the bedsheets are now blue!

The house we live in is buildt in the 50's i think. But it still doesen't exlplain the duvets gone missing. I don't think my possible unbalanced energy can do that. Several other small things also often goes missing - but I havent taken this into an account really - we all misplace things often. But I am starting to now

And oh, I dunno If I mentioned this in the first post - at night about four in the morning, every night - there is two loud and hard thumps in the basement. The basement is located directly under where the bed used to be before I moved it today. No shaking while I can hear the thumps. Since I am going to to do a soundrecord in the bedroom, maybe I should do this in the basement also? I love this, its exciting doing a paranormal investigation

But if I can't get any evidence of this and the shaking stops due to the changes I have made, I should assume it is I that is doing this unconsciously.

You have a mischievous spirit.

I’m not an expert on the matter but I found in my own experience that it was helpful to assert my dominance. You can think it or say it, but sending the vibe that “this is my home and you don’t belong here.” One night a coffee cup was spinning around by itself on my coffee table. I just stopped it with a finger and said out loud “you are not welcome here, go away.” It stopped. (Just one example.)

I’d recommend caution though, as although some spirits will respect (or fear) your dominance enough to stop, others (poltergeists) may put up a fight. If seems to fight back, by throwing or breaking things, or attacking you in any way, it becomes a more serious matter. But for now I’d recommend asserting yourself.

Good luck.

OP, I apologize because I didn't read all the way through the thread before posting so somebody else may have already told you something similar to what I'm going to say.

First of all, I believe you. I also believe in ghosts. For those who claim they don't exist, keep telling yourself that. It's easy enough to make such claims until something happens to you that cannot be explained by anything "normal." Zero evidence of ghosts? I beg to differ. There's plenty of evidence. It's just that some people wouldn't believe in ghosts if one walked up and slapped them in the face.

Now, enough of that... I used to wake up during the night to what I thought was the bed shaking and it was very disturbing. After having this occur a few times, I finally realized it was ME and not the bed. I wasn't actually shaking, but I felt like it. I'm not sure what caused it but I suspect it had something to do with sleep apnea. I only experienced it when I would doze off and then almost immediately wake up. Eventually, it just didn't happen anymore.

Now, with that said, even if that is what you are experiencing, it doesn't explain the pillows and the duvet. I used to be a paranormal investigator and found that the best way to get something to leave was to just tell it to go away or to at least not bother you or your things. Surprisingly enough, this was all it took to bring things under control many times. In any case, I wish you luck! Try not to let it scare you. It doesn't sound dangerous... just sounds as if it's trying to get attention. Tell it you're aware of it's presence so it needs to stop now.

It sounds like spiritual trouble. I've had similar issues in the past, back when I was a teenager.

If you can't get your house blessed by a priest, then my advice is to use the following prayers (which I have personally found to be helpful). They are lengthy, but if it helps, then it helps.

In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, by the prayers of Thy most pure Mother and of our holy and God-bearing fathers and of all the Saints, have mercy on us. Amen.

Glory to Thee our God, glory to Thee.

Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere present and fillest all things, Treasury of good gifts and Giver of Life, come and abide in us, and cleanse us of all impurity, and save our souls, O Good One.

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us. (Thrice)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the -ages of ages. Amen.

Most Holy Trinity, have mercy on us. O Lord, wash away our sins. O Master, pardon our transgressions. O Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities, for Thy Name's sake.

Lord, have mercy. (3 times)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

O come let us worship God our King.
O come let us worship and fall down before Christ, our King and God.
O come let us worship and fall down before Christ Himself, our King and God.

Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us. For at a loss for any plea we sinners offer to Thee, our Master, this supplication: have mercy on us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Lord, have mercy on us, for our trust is in Thee. Be not very angry with us, remember not our sins; but even now regard us, in Thy tender compassion, and deliver us from our enemies. For Thou art our God, and we are Thy people; we are all the work of Thy Hands, and we call on Thy Name.

Now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Open the door of thy loving-kindness, O blessed Mother of God, that we who put our hope in thee may not perish. Through thee, may we be delivered from adversities, for thou art the salvation of Christian people.

Lord, have mercy. (12 times)

Then the following prayers in order, with attention and compunction.

Prayer of St. Macarius the Great
to God the Father
O Eternal God and King of all creation, Who hast granted me to arrive at this hour, forgive me the sins that I have committed today in thought, word and deed, and cleanse, O Lord, my humble soul from all defilement of flesh and spirit. And grant me, O Lord, to pass the sleep of this night in peace, that when I rise from my bed I may please Thy most holy Name all the days of my life and conquer my flesh and the fleshless foes that war with me. And deliver me, O Lord, from vain and frivolous thoughts, and from evil desires which defile me. For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Prayer of St. Antioch
to our Lord Jesus Christ
O All-Ruler, Word of the Father, Jesus Christ, Thou Who art perfect, never in Thy great mercy leave me, but ever abide in me, Thy servant. O Jesus, Good Shepherd of Thy sheep, deliver me not to the revolt of the serpent and leave me not to the will of satan, for the seed of corruption is in me. Lord, adorable God, Holy King, Jesus Christ, guard me asleep by the unwaning light, Thy Holy Spirit, by Whom Thou didst sanctify Thy disciples. O Lord, grant me, Thy unworthy servant, Thy salvation on my bed. Enlighten my mind with the light of understanding of Thy Holy Gospel. Enlighten my soul with the love of Thy Cross. Enlighten my heart with the purity of Thy Word. Enlighten my body with Thy passionless Passion. Keep my thoughts in Thy humility. And rouse me in good time to glorify Thee, for Thou art supremely glorified, with Thy eternal Father, and Thy most Holy Spirit forever. Amen.

Prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian
to the Most Holy Spirit
O Lord, Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, have compassion and mercy on Thy sinful servant and pardon my unworthiness, and forgive me all the sins that I humanly committed today, and not only humanly but even worse than a beast - my voluntary sins, known and unknown, from my youth and from evil suggestions, and from my brazenness, and from boredom. If I have sworn by Thy Name or blasphemed it in thought, blamed or reproached anyone, or in my anger have detracted or slandered anyone, or grieved anyone, or if I have got angry about anything, or have told a lie, if I have slept unnecessarily, or if a beggar has come to me and I despised or neglected him, or if I have troubled my brother or quarrelled with him, or if I have condemned anyone, or have boasted, or have been proud, or lost my temper with anyone, or if when standing in prayer my mind has been distracted by the glamour of this world, or if I have had depraved thoughts or have overeaten, or have drunk excessively, or have laughed frivolously, or have thought evil, or have seen the attraction of someone and been wounded by it in my heart, or said indecent things, or made fun of my brother's sin when my own faults are countless, or been neglectful of prayer, or have done some other wrong that I cannot remember - for I have done all this and much more - have mercy, my Lord and Creator, on me Thy wretched and unworthy servant, and absolve and forgive and deliver me in Thy goodness and love for men, so that, lustful, sinful and wretched as I am, I may lie down and sleep and rest in peace. And I shall worship, praise and glorify Thy most honourable Name, with the Father and His only-begotten Son, now and ever, and for all ages. Amen.

O Lord, our God, in Thy goodness and love for men forgive me all the sins I have committed today in word, deed or thought. Grant me peaceful and undisturbed sleep. Send Thy Guardian Angel to guard and protect me from all evil. For Thou art the guardian of our souls and bodies, and to Thee we ascribe glory, to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

O Lord our God, in Whom we believe and Whose Name we invoke above every name, grant us preparing for sleep relaxation of soul and body, and keep us from all temptations and dark pleasures. Stop the rushing of passions, and quench the burning of bodily tensions. Grant us to live chastely in word and act, that we may live a life of heroic virtue and not fall away from Thy promised blessings. For Thou art blessed for ever. Amen.

Prayer of St. John Chrysostom
(Supplicatory prayers corresponding to 24 hours of the day.)
Lord, deprive me not of Thy heavenly joys. Lord, deliver me from eternal torments. Lord, if I have sinned in mind or thought, in word or deed, forgive me. Lord, deliver me from all ignorance, forgetfulness, cowardice and stony insensibility. Lord, deliver me from every temptation. Lord, enlighten my heart which evil desires have darkened. Lord, I being human have sinned, but Thou being the generous God, have mercy on me, knowing the sickness of my soul. Lord, send Thy grace to my help, that I may glorify Thy holy Name. Lord Jesus Christ, write me Thy servant in the Book of Life, and grant me a good end. O Lord my God, even though I have done nothing good in Thy sight, yet grant me by Thy grace to make a good start. Lord, sprinkle into my heart the dew of Thy grace. Lord of heaven and earth remember me, Thy sinful servant, shameful and unclean, in Thy Kingdom. Amen.

O Lord, accept me in penitence. O Lord, leave me not. O Lord, lead me not into temptation. O Lord, grant me good thoughts. O Lord, grant me tears and remembrance of death and compunction. O Lord, grant me the thought of confessing my sins. O Lord, grant me humility, chastity and obedience. O Lord, grant me patience, courage and meekness. O Lord, plant in me the root of all blessings, the fear of Thee in my heart. O Lord, grant me to love Thee with all my mind and soul, and always to do Thy will. O Lord, protect me from certain people, and demons, and passions, and from every other harmful thing. O Lord, Thou knowest that Thou actest as Thou wilt; may Thy will be also in me, a sinner, for blessed art Thou for ever. Amen.

our Lord Jesus Christ
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, for the sake of Thy most honourable Mother, Thy fleshless Angels, Thy Prophet and Forerunner and Baptizer, all the God-inspired Apostles, the radiant and victorious Martyrs, the holy and God-bearing Fathers, and by the prayers of all Saints, deliver me from the besetting presence of the devil. My Lord and Creator, Who desirest not the death of the sinner, but that he should be converted and live, grant also conversion to me, wretched and unworthy, snatch me from the jaws of the pernicious serpent, who is ravening to devour me and drag me down to hell alive. My Lord, my Comfort, Who wast clothed in corruptible flesh for my miserable sake, deliver me from misery and grant comfort to my miserable soul. Implant in my heart to fulfil Thy commandments, and forsake my evil deeds, and to receive Thy joys. Save me, for I hope in Thee, O Lord. Amen.

Prayer of Intercession
to the Most Holy Mother of God
O good Mother of the good King, most pure and blessed Virgin Mary, pour out the mercy of thy Son and our God on my passionate soul and guide me in good works by thy prayers, that I may pass the rest of my life without defilement, and find paradise through thee, O Virgin Mother of God, who alone art pure and blessed.

Prayer of Intercession
to the holy Guardian Angel
O Angel of Christ, my holy Guardian and Protector of my soul and body, forgive me all my sins of today. Deliver me from all the wiles of the enemy, that I may not anger my God by any sin. Pray for me, sinful and unworthy servant, that thou mayest present me worthy of the kindness and mercy of the All-holy Trinity and the Mother of my Lord Jesus Christ, and of all the Saints. Amen.

(Here one says a prayer to one's Patron Saint.)

Queen of the Heavenly Host, Defender of our souls, we thy servants offer to thee songs of victory and thanksgiving, for thou, O Mother of God, hast delivered us from dangers. But as thou hast invincible power, free us from conflicts of all kinds that we may cry to thee: Rejoice, unwedded Bride.

Most glorious, Ever-Virgin, blessed, Mother of Christ our God, present our prayer to thy Son and our God, and pray that through thee He may save our souls.

I put all my hope in thee, O Mother of God. Guard me under thy protection. O Virgin Mother of God, despise not me, a sinner, needing thy help and protection, and have mercy on me, for my soul hopes in thee.

(Lacking the opportunity of asking pardon of each person.)

O God, absolve, remit, and pardon our voluntary and involuntary sins, in word and deed, known and unknown, by day and by night, in mind and thought; forgive us all, in Thy goodness and love for men.

Prayer of Intercession
O Lord, Lover of men, forgive those who hate and wrong us. Do good to those who do good. Grant our brothers and relatives their saving petitions and eternal life. Visit the sick and grant them healing. Guide those at sea. Travel with travellers. Struggle alongside the Orthodox. To those who serve and are kind to us, grant remission of sins. On those who have charged us, unworthy as we are, to pray for them, have mercy according to Thy great mercy. Remember, O Lord, our fathers and brothers who have fallen asleep, and grant them rest where the light of Thy countenance shines. Remember, O Lord, those who bear fruit and do good works in Thy holy churches and grant them their saving petitions and eternal life. Remember also, O Lord, us Thy humble, sinful and unworthy servants, and enlighten our minds with the light of knowledge of Thyself, and guide us in the way of Thy commandments, by the prayers of our immaculate Lady, Mother of God, and Ever-Virgin Mary, and of all Thy Saints, for Thou art blessed to the ages of ages. Amen.

Daily Confession of Sins
I confess to Thee, my Lord, God and Creator, to the One glorified and worshipped in Holy Trinity, to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all my sins which I have committed all the days of my life, at every hour, in the present and in the past, day and night, in thought, word and deed; by gluttony, drunkenness, secret eating, idle talking, despondency, indolence, contradiction, neglect, aggressiveness, self love, hoarding, stealing, lying, dishonesty, curiosity, jealousy, envy, anger, resentment, and remembering wrongs, hatred, mercenariness; and by all my senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch; and all other sins, spiritual and bodily, through which I have angered Thee, my God and Creator, and caused injustice to my neighbours. Sorrowing for this, but determined to repent, I stand guilty before Thee, my God. Only help me, my Lord and God, I humbly pray Thee with tears. Forgive my past sins by Thy mercy, and absolve me from all I have confessed in Thy presence, for Thou art good and the Lover of men. Amen.

Prayer of St. John of Damascus.
(To be said pointing at the bed.)
O Lord, Lover of men, is this bed to be my coffin, or wilt Thou enlighten my wretched soul with another day? Here the coffin lies before me, and here death confronts me. I fear, O Lord, Thy Judgment and the endless torments, yet I cease not to do evil. My Lord God, I continually anger Thee, and Thy immaculate Mother, and all the Heavenly Powers, and my holy Guardian Angel. I know, O Lord, that I am unworthy of Thy love, but deserve condemnation and every torment. But, whether I want it or not, save me, O Lord. For to save a good man is no great thing, and to have mercy on the pure is nothing wonderful, for they are worthy of Thy mercy. But show the wonder of Thy mercy on me, a sinner. In this reveal Thy love for men, lest my wickedness prevail over Thy unutterable goodness and mercy. And order my life as Thou wilt.

(As sleep is the image of death, at night we pray for the departed.)

With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the souls of Thy servants where there is no pain, no sorrow, no sighing, but life everlasting.

(When about to lie down in bed, say

Lighten my eyes, O Christ God, lest I sleep in death, and lest my enemy say: I have prevailed over him.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Be my soul's Defender, O God, for I step over many snares. Deliver me from them and save me, O Good One, in Thy love for men.

Now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Let us not silently hymn the most glorious Mother of God, holiest of holy Angels, but confess her with heart and mouth to be the Mother of God, for she truly bore God incarnate for us, and prays without ceasing for our souls. Amen.

Kiss your cross, and make the sign of the Cross from head to foot of the bed and from two sides, and then say:

Prayer to the Venerable Cross
Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; and let those who hate Him flee from His presence. As smoke vanishes, let them vanish; and as wax melts from the presence of fire, so let the demons perish from the presence of those who love God and who sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and say in gladness: Hail, most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, for Thou drivest away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ crucified on thee, Who went down to hell and trampled on the power of the devil, and gave us thee, His venerable Cross, for driving away all enemies. O most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, help me with our holy Lady, the Virgin Mother of God, and with all the Saints throughout the ages. Amen.

(Just before getting into bed, say

Guard me, O Lord, by the power of Thy holy and life-giving Cross, and keep me from all evil.

(Just before yielding yourself up to sleep, say

Into Thy hands, O Lord Jesus Christ, my God, I surrender my spirit and body; bless me, save me, and grant me eternal life. Amen.

The house we live in is buildt in the 50's i think...

And oh, I dunno If I mentioned this in the first post - at night about four in the morning, every night - there is two loud and hard thumps in the basement. The basement is located directly under where the bed used to be before I moved it today. No shaking while I can hear the thumps. Since I am going to to do a soundrecord in the bedroom, maybe I should do this in the basement also? I love this, its exciting doing a paranormal investigation

Yes, you should feel more comfortable with blue in the room. Warm tones of blue, gray, brown, and white are the best colors for a bedroom, IMO.

So, what kind of heating element are you using for the house? If you've got a furnace in the basement, this could explain both the knocking sounds and the bed shaking (if you've got metal vents going below your bedroom, the hot air moving through them might be causing movement).

Also, do you have wood flooring in that room?

I don't know what to think about the missing duvet/pillows. This kind of thing happens to me frequently, too, I admit to being absent-minded but sometimes very weird things happen.

The other day, I was carrying a pair of pajama pants to the clothes hamper and they just disappeared. I had them one second and did not have them the next. And, I haven't been able to find them since. I have thought I may have Brownies or some other type of mischievous elves following me around, because this kind of thing has happened to me many times in my life. But maybe I just know how to make things disappear and return without knowing that I know how to do it?

Haha, yes, people, I admit to being crazy.

I have written about something similar in another thread about a year ago (April). I had started experiencing something similar to what you are during that time period. I wasn't doing well with my boyfriend during that time (we were fighting a lot) so we didn't sleep in the same bed much during that time and that was when I first noticed the bottom of the bed would move/shake like a cat had jumped up on the bed and was walking around at the foot of the bed. Serious movement (not light), just like a cat walking around...

I always figured it was my imagination. Since then we have gotten a new bed and it still happens so I know for sure it wasn't just the bed causing it.

Scary thing was about a month ago my boyfriend and I were in bed getting ready for sleep. He says something like, "I was going to tell you something but I don't want you to get freaked out." So my curiousity is peaked and I ask, "What, did you see something?" He said, "No but sometimes when I'm laying here..." and I finished for him with, "It feels like something is on the bed??" and he said yes and stated that it was like a cat walking across the bed. I *NEVER* said anything to him about feeling that type of movement since I figured it was just me imagining things so that verified that we had both felt it. He is a heavy sleeper as well so he didn't feel it very often but he had felt something. We have felt it both while alone and together.

We figure it's our cat that passed away the year before (end of 2010) but I'm not sure. Sorry I don't have any advice but I want to let you know that you are not alone at least.

Edit: Oh I know it sounds dumb but I guess the only advice I can give is what works for me when I fear something while trying to get to sleep. I put a "shield" up around myself and think about it protecting me and keeping me from harm. Like I said, it might sound dumb but it works for me most the time.

There's nothing "dumb" about needing to feel safe!

It works, and that is all that matters.

That would have been an excellent idea except for the fact that she/he said that it happened after the partner had already left for work. I think that pretty much rules out the idea that it was him moving the bed. I have doubts about it being some movement on OP's part either because the movement was not present after relocating to the sofa....all activity seems to be occurring in the bedroom. I think if the movement can be videotaped, then it would be very helpful in determining possible involuntary movement by OP. Of course, unless you're lucky enough to own recording equipment, that may not be an option.

Unless Op's heart rate and blood pressure is abnormally high, there would be no way that even the abdominal aortic pulse could conceiveably shake a bed. True, we thin folks can feel that pulse where larger persons generally cannot, but if your pulse is shaking a bed large enough for you and another person to sleep on, it's time to go see the doctor. I actually wondered about seizure activity from the partner until it was revealed that the shaking was present when he was not at home. Curious to see if the video solves the mystery

I hope you are doing ok. My computer died so I'm having to use my husband's and haven't been on very much. I doubt very seriously that the shaking is your abdominal pulse, and replied to that post already...but after thinking about it I realized that since you were not able to film the bed actually shaking, maybe it's not an actual external shaking. Maybe just the sensation of shaking and it's enough to wake you. I feel your pain on the anxiety and sleeplessness...I too suffer from those issues. Sometimes anxiety can be so severe that it can cause hallucinations. Add the disorientation of being asleep and suddenly waking, general sleep deprivation, medications on board, and other is possible that you could be repeating some habit of movement that you developed in your sleep and upon waking feels like the sensation of shaking or vibrating. I'm going to do some reading on this and see if I can find anything similar. Did you only videotape the bed empty? Or did you film yourself asleep in it? I haven't had a chance to read all the posts, so if I'm asking an already answered question I apologize

Yeah - you're right. I missed the part about it happening after he left for work.

I wonder if moving the bed across the room would make a difference???

Try putting Salt and Sage under the Bed..also put salt in the doorways of home..If you can, buy a dog and let him sleep in the room..this should take care of the problem.
