Question: Hello I have recently discovered this site and find it comforting that others suffer the same symptoms that I do.
I am 23 years old and I am concerned that my night terrors make me attack my brother in my sleep. he says I scream really loud at night and I kick him quite hard. I don’t remember kicking him but I do remember other things.I know that I’m awake but I have no control, I see strange shapes I know its not a dream because I read the articles and the things I see are static like looking into a photo. I see strange shapes they are difficult to describe, I can’t remember all of them one was a black sun and more disturbing I saw myself as a child standing at the foot of my bed.There is probably nothing to worry about because it happens every few months but I don’t want to ruin the relationship with my brother and need to know how to sort this out before it spirals out of control. I know it’s common in children but not in adults. Who do I see or speak to for professional help?
