Parasomnias

A parasomnia is when the person is awake enough to act out behaviors, but is still asleep and not aware of the activities. They usually cannot recall them in the morning. These episodes are usually infrequent, but occasionally they are bothersome enough to warrant medical attention, especially if the person or a bed partner is injured.

Symptoms of Parasomnias

  • Sleepwalking 
  • Sleep talking 
  • Sleep-related eating 
  • Sleep terrors 
  • Confusional arousals

Diagnosis of Parasomnias

If you are showing symptoms of parasomnias, you may be asked to take a sleep study to diagnose if you are experiencing sleep apnea. Sleep studies can be done at the Bryan Sleep Center or through a Home Sleep Test.

Treatment of Parasomnias

Many people who suffer with parasomnias see an improvement in their symptoms simply by improving their sleep habits.

Good sleep habits include:

  • Keeping a regular sleep schedule
  • Managing stress
  • Having a relaxing bedtime routine
  • Getting enough sleep

Parasomnias can also be medically treated.
