My 10 year old son has been getting up from his sleep walking around like he doesn't know what is going on I ask him what is wrong because he grabs his chest and acts like he is scared, he also touches his nose and when I ask him what is wrong he moves his shoulders up as to say he doesn't know. This is scary this has happend to him at least four times and I would like to know if any one can relate to this or if they know if it could be some type of sleep disorder. Any responce will be greatly appreciated. God Bless everyone.
It sounds like sleepwalking. If it continues, you should have him see a sleep medicine doctor. Interestingly, many sleep walkers are found to have obstructive sleep apnea and when treated, the sleep walking can go away in most cases.
