You should see a sleep specialist/neurologist. I was acting out in my sleep, yelling (often obscenities), jumping out of bed, and had hit and kicked my wife. Seemed like I had PTSD! Was diagnosed with "REM Sleep Disorder" which meant I failed to enter "sleep paralysis" when i was in dream state (REM) sleep. Got an RX for sub-clinical dose of Clonazapam which I've taken nightly for about 3 years and the problem has gone away.. I sleep much better too. The drug is for siezure disorder but in very low dose seems to help relieve REM sleep disorder. works for me!View Thread
