I started having sleep issues when I was about 12, sleep walking, talking, wild dreams and so on. Sleep walking, eating, talking, fighting, odd behavior while sleeping and even sleep sex. Its a running joke in my family, people are always asking me if I am awake??? Well the past year or so, ITS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE!!! It is getting worse and worse, about 6 months ago everynight for two weeks I called my SO a bunch of swear words, telling him to f--off and leave and all kinds of awful things, I took a over the counter sleeping pill for about a month and when I took it, I had no outbursts. but I stopped taking it because I didn't think it was good to take it longer. The last three months I have been having insomnia, and the nights I finally sleep, I have been waking up standing in my living room or kitchen or sitting on the toliet or looking out my open front door. My SO spent 4 nights here last week(he has been staying at a sober living facility)on the second night, he said I got up three times the first time I was swearing and I jumped up and down three times on the third jump I came down on my knees and hopped up and got back into bed. The second and third time I rolled out of bed and got back in again. the other nights were full of walking and talking, he has been gone 4 months and I am not sure what I have been up to at night since he has been gone. I have lots of bruises and marks on my arms and legs I am scared that I will do something terrible like sleep drive or hurt my kids, or get out of my house and get hit by a truck. But what do I tell a doctor, and what if he orders a sleep study, and nothing happens, then what.,I have been also really scared I have been reseaching on the internet and I am scared it might be a seziure disorder, if so I will be lose my driving privilges, then what?
I woke up outside sitting on my steps--- I am freakin out!!
