The Doctors are joined by pulmonary and sleep specialist Dr. Raj Dasgupta to help answer a viewer question about her night terrors.
The viewer explains she often has terrors where she awakes "kicking and screaming" and says she feels like someone is trying to harm her. She also shares that she has a repeated dream where someone is attempting to communicate with her, but she is unable to remember any details when she wakes.
"What's going on with me and what can I do to stop them?" she asks.
Dr. Raj says this issue appears to be parasomnias, which he explains are unwanted actions and behaviors as you are going to sleep, sleeping or waking. He believes the viewer should undergo a sleep study to determine which stage of sleep her parasomnias are occurring in.
The sleep specialist explains some medications can be used for nightmares and REM disorders but says there is "not much" that can be done for night terrors with meds. He adds that when an adult has a parasomnia that it is "not normal" and it should be checked out.
Do you wake up in the middle of the night around the same time? Find out what Dr. Raj believes is causing this consistent wake-up pattern in the video below.
