Odd sleep behaviour

Postby brockovich4321 » Tue Aug 02, 2016 12:29 am

Hi all,

I've been experiencing some odd sleep behaviour for as long as I can remember, and I can't find a name for it/category.

Hoping someone here might know what it's called. It disrupts my sleep often.

So most nights, I awake to find my body in odd positions/doing odd things, such as;
*one arm sticking straight up in the air, perpendicular to my body, as if its trying to balance there (my legs do this too) I often don't become fully awake/aware of the position I'm in until my arm falls & hits me in the face.
*laying on my stomach, knees bend so feet are sticking up in the air. My feet are usually either rubbing together of hitting/bouncing off one another.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this?

I used to have insomnia/sleep walk/night terrors as a child.
