Sleep Disorders: Night Terrors, Sleep Walking,
Sleepwalking occurs during deep, dreamless sleep. A Sleepwalker may roam around the house, perhaps opening and closing doors or turning lights on and off, do routine activities, such as getting dressed or making a snack — even driving a car, speak or move in a clumsy manner, and be difficult to wake up during an episode. The sleepwalker won’t remember the episode in the morning.
Many factors can contribute to sleepwalking, including:Sleep deprivation,fatigue,stress,anxiety,and some medications. It is sometimes associated with underlying conditions such as Sleep Apnea, Restless legs syndrome (RLS), Migraines, and head injuries. Treatment is aimed at the underlying problem. Medication may help reduce sleep walking.
Restless Legs Syndrome is charcterised by abnormal, unpleasant sensations in their calves, thighs or feet including sensations of crawling,pulling, throbbing,aching, pain, or burning.
RLS is sometimes associated with underlying conditions such as anaemia, peripheral Neuropathy etc.
Treating the underlying condition, greatly relieves restless leg syndrome. There are also a number of medicines that are used in the treatment of RLS.
