Is anybody here a chronic walker or talker or thrasher (or eater!!) in their sleep?
I'm going in for a night at the sleep lab tomorrow, and that and Audrey M's sleep question got me thinking about a bunch of my sleep activity during the last few years. I think I'm one of those people who act out dreams - which can be kind of funny sometimes; I once spent five minutes on the phone with my mom, telling her all about the CSI case that me and my friends were solving! Haha, you know it's bad when wake up with your cellphone open next to you, and fresh calls in your call log that you definitely do not remember... :P
Sometimes I wake up with a charlie horse or a pulled muscle, I think because I've been dreaming of running or swimming or something... Haha, when I was on swim team, I definitely had trouble, getting woken up by "swimming races" in my bed :)
Also, a month or two back, I think I might've actually been roaming the house. I don't know - for a few nights, I woke up with this vague feeling of "what was I up to last night??" Then one morning, things had DEFINITELY moved around in the night, and when I put one foot out of bed, out of nowhere, I had the worst injury to my Achilles that I've ever had. It wasn't like I'd been exercising at the time (haha, at least, not that I know of!) so it was just weird! I just wonder, what was I up to...
Does this sound familiar to anybody? I haven't heard much about sleepwalking, etc., and MS - does anybody know if there's a connection? The sleep specialist I talked to said it's a bit unusual for this kind of activity to crop up out of nowhere in your late teens (like it did for me) so now I started wondering if this might be another "symptom" to consider. Then again, I know there's plenty of healthy people who sleepwalk and talk and eat! (Oh man, if anybody has any sleepeating stories, I'd love to hear those - I just think that's so funny!)
Oh, I'm also curious about sleep-thrashing, I guess you'd call it? I'm not sure - I just know that I've heard a number of people here on the forum mention trouble with moving limbs, or night jerks, or something, and I was just curious about what that was about. Is that an MS thing?
Anyway, everybody, thanks for any input! Hope you all are having a good weekend! :)
