“I sleepwalk. I set off our alarm once. I was outside. The alarm scared the **** out of me and I woke up, and I was out by the pool equipment in the back. I don’t know what I was doing. I heard this yelling because he’s terrified, he hears the alarm and I’m not there!”

What is Somnambulism?

Somnambulism is a sleep disorder in which the person walks in his sleep and does activities which normally he or she would have done during awake time. It occurs during the state of low consciousness (On an EEG, slow wave sleep stage).

The person who sleepwalks has no memory of what he had done during the sleepwalking phase. Its duration may be from a few seconds to as long as 30 minutes. It may involve simple tasks or even complicated procedures. The person’s eyes are open during sleepwalking but their expression is minimal.

Stress and sleep deprivation is said to precipitate this episode in a person who is prone to it. The exact cause is unknown. Genetics does play a role and it is known to run in families. Behavioral or emotional problems are not commonly associated with this sleep disorder. Some medications may help manage this problem. But environmental changes need to be implemented to make it safe for the sleepwalker. The furniture with sharp edges should be removed from the bedroom.

There should be a door alarm in the bedroom which rings whenever the person crosses the bedroom door. Staircases should be fitted with gates which should be locked at night time. The main door should be locked from inside firmly and the keys should be kept hidden at an isolated place. It has been seen to affect 4.6 to 10.3% of the population and our Jennifer Aniston is one of them!
