Abnormal activity in sleep

December 16, 2006 2:11am CST
My colleague has observed that his son aged about 22 is getting up in midnight and standing up on the cot and stretches his hands to touch the fan. When my colleague wakes him, he will not be aware of what has happened. This has happened twice. Can anybody give a remedy for this?

Sorry I don't know any remedy for that. However, what his son does is a bit like sleep walking isnt it? My sister used to do something similar when she was in her teens but we just watched out for her and she doesnt do it anymore (at least I dont think so). But, i read somewhere that sleep walking is caused by stress of some sort, i hope this helps a bit.
