Comment from: bakalite, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: September 05

I have no idea what causes my sleepwalking. My father and my daughter sleepwalk. My brother and I used to tease my father to cook in the kitchen. My sleepwalking is perhaps twice, three times, a year. Hard to tell as I don't remember unless I am confronted, or indeed face plant off the stairs in a bookshelf and get hospitalized, etc. I can count on one the hand units of alcohol I've consumed in the last five years. So I'm ruling out drugs. It is a problem.
