Have you gone to the kitchen in the night for a glass of water and seen your son putting dirty dishes into the cupboard? Do you wake up in the night to urinate, miss the toilet, crawl back to bed, and not remember anything in the morning?
These are common examples of sleepwalking. When people sleepwalk, they are not walking in a zombie-like fashion with their arms extended in front of them; it is more likely that they will be doing every day tasks, just perhaps with a twist like in the two examples given above. This short video demonstration introduces us to the diagnosis of sleepwalking and assures us that it is okay to guide a sleepwalker back to bed, but that waking sleepwalkers is typically not necessary.
If the knowledge that you are a sleepwalker leads to sleeping troubles for you in the future, then do not hesitate to contact Comfort Sleep, a sleep center in Neptune, NJ, to arrange an overnight sleep study. Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia are much more common than you might think. Comfort Sleep specializes in sleep apnea treatment in Monmouth County and the surrounding areas.
