Sleep Walking/Night Terrors

Does anyone here sleep walk or still have night terrors? From what I understand, night terrors is waking up from a deep sleep screaming, usually falling right back to sleep (if waking up at all).

My two year old does the night terrors thing. I'm hoping he outgrows it but his 13 year old nephew still has night terrors and sleep walks as well.

Anyone else have any experience with these?

I suffer from sleep walking sometimes. I think it only comes when I'm feeling stressed about something. People have seen me get up and walk while I was asleep apparently, I started moving stuff about my desk and tidying up.

I've done this too. I use to work 24 hour shifts on an ambulance and we would have sleep time and during high stress times in my life, I'd get up and wonder around the station house.

I can't recall any night terrors, but I'm a sleep walker. Well, used to be. I've woken up outside on more than one occasion. One time, I woke up naked a town over.

But I haven't done that in a few years.

I have never been told that I sleep walk,i had night terrors when i was real young and my 2 year old has had them a couple of times.
My ex has told me on several occasions that she was woken up by me punching the wall in my sleep,i have no recollection of ever doing that.

I used to sleepwalk alot, actually. I would actually get up, walk around, and hold conversations with people. I would have no conscious recollection of it after waking up. The sleepwalking has stopped, thankfully, though I still talk in my sleep from time to time, occasionally. Unfortunately I'm told I can be a real asshole while doing so, however.

I've never had night terrors, though, and I've never had a whole lot of nightmares. Even the dreams that would be considered scary to most people never really phase me. I once had a dream where I was nearly sucked into a tornado, and didn't even wake up with a cold sweat. It was more like "Damn, that was a crazy dream I had last night. Oh well."
