There is a sleep disorder where your brain fails to cause the paralysis you are supposed to have while sleeping. As you go into dream stage of sleep, your brain is supposed to paralyze your voluntary muscles so you don't act out your dreams. It's not working right for you.
My sister's first husband had this. I don't know if they cured him or not, but he used to get up and wreck the bedroom. My sister would ask what he was doing and he would yell that he couldn't find his wrench or other tool, usually. But he was sound asleep and would have no memory of it in the morning.
