NEW STUDY! Parasym Plus™ for Multiple Sclerosis › Forums › PrettyIll.com Discussion › EDS/MS/Chiari › Those that had the larger head circumference – did you sleep walk/talk have night terrors as a child?
My kids and I had larger head sizes in the first 15 months, and when I was up with one of them last night, having night terrors that I couldn’t wake them from, thought that this is probably related, as I was like this as a child, and my 2 girls do it too. Anyone else?
I actually have a small head (hat size is 6 3/4) and I used to walk AND talk in my sleep, sleep with my eyes open and have night terrors / extremely vivid dreams. I have actually punched and bitten people IN MY SLEEP. My ex-husband used to call me the Midnight Ninja…LOL! And, yes, people have a VERY hard time waking me up from them. Often they can apparently arouse me enough to bring me out of it but not enough to bring me fully awake…but even that is difficult.
I just had to say something here. Many of the patients I converse with who have hydrocephalus STILL deal with “night terrors” of sorts! One I know of wakes up screaming, not remembering who she is or where she is — in her own home. This happens most nights. I’m assuming it is the hydrocephalus, leading to lack of oxygen perfusion to the brain. But it could be the attack of inflammatory cytokines, too. We’ll get to the bottom of it! Great question! 🙂 Diana
