Sleep walking, sleep talking, Sleep eating, and other unusual behaviours in the night make up Parasomnias. They can also make you feel tired and unrefreshed in the mornings.
Whilst common in children, they persist in a small proportion of adults. Unfortunately, living with a parasomnia can be embarrassing, or perhaps even dangerous to your bed partner.
Parasomnias can overlap with nocturnal epilepsy, and Narcolepsy. A home sleep study won’t look for those conditions either, you’ll need an in-hospital sleep study to diagnose it correctly.
Our Sleep Specialists treat Parasomnias all the time. We see and treat the whole spectrum of Parasomnias including REM Parasomnias (RBD, REM Behaviour Disorder) and NREM Parasomnias (including Sleepwalking, sleep talking, sleep sex, somniloquy, night terrors).
