What do you do while you sleep?

Sleep seems to be a time when passive and so quiet. Yet sleep can be filled with activities, sometimes entertaining and sometimes dangerous. The parasomnia is an unusual behavior during sleep, ranging from the simple act of sitting up in bed or to mutter, preparing a sandwich or to drive a car - all while asleep.

If you have noticed the telltale signs of eating at night - as a lack of appetite for breakfast, an unexplained disorder in your kitchen - it may be that you are suffering from a disorder parasomnia hyperphagic.

As does walking during sleep, eating during sleep occurs during slow wave sleep. Like a sleepwalker, he who eats in his sleep will stand up and walk around asleep, in this case headed for food. Even if he continues to sleep with open eyes, the eater sleepwalker can cook and eat a meal or snack. Obviously, this can be dangerous! Pans may remain switched on and the knives are dangerous in it.

But the person is still asleep and in fact it can be very difficult to wake someone who is in a state of night terrors. Once conscious, the person is disoriented.

Night terrors are emerging from the deep sleep, which distinguishes them from the nightmares are dreams that occur during REM (rapid eye movement sleep). Sometimes an image may appear frightening, like spiders or horrible characters. However, unlike someone who awakens from a terrifying nightmare, the person who suffers from night terrors do not wake up during the episode and what it remembers warning may vary depending on the person. Children suffer more often from night terrors, although they tend to be detached. Night terrors in adults are often associated with a mental disorder, such as bipolar disorder or depression.

When we sleep, and that progressively enters the stage of dreams or the phase of rapid eye movement sleep or REM sleep, nerve signals are closing most of our motor functions. This temporary paralysis prevents us from falling off our bed when, for example, we dream that we drive down a hill. However, people who suffer from a disorder of REM sleep behavior can move their limbs as they dream and give punches, kicks, grab or pounce. Unlike night terrors, people who experience this type of disorder can sometimes remember these dreams penetrating waking up the next day.

The idea of
​​simulating dreams may seem fun at first, but this type of disorder can be dangerous (especially for the person who sleeps next door) and also be an indicator of underlying problem. If symptoms of conduct disorder in REM sleep, it is best to talk to her doctor, because this type of symptom occurs frequently in people with neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's disease.

Individually, the activities parasomnia can be relatively harmless or at most to the subject of a great conversation. However, each of these events in sleep may be sufficient to affect the overall quality of sleep and thus the health and safety in general.
