Have you ever done anything strange in your sleep before?
Last night my husband stopped me just in time. I was about to dig into a bag of dog chewy’s thinking that it was a bag of “gummy treats.” I probably wouldn’t remember this happening except I was so embarrassed.
In the past I have done things in my sleep like make tea. There wouldn’t be anything strange about this except I seasoned the tea with apple slices and trail mix. LOL
According to clevelandclinic.org sleepwalking is caused by the following:
- lack of sleep or fatigue
- interrupted sleep or inefficient sleep
- illness or fever
- certain medications
- stress, anxiety
- going to bed with full bladder
In my case I think it is due to either anxiety or medication. In the past I took ambien until the psychiatrist stopped prescribing it to me because I reported that I had done some sleep walking. Last night I was experiencing a lot of anxiety so I took some klonopin before bed. I don’t know if I was sleep walking because of the klonopin or if it was because of the anxiety.
Do you have any interesting tales about sleep walking?
