I have been to a sleep specialist before and he wanted to catch one of my episodes while I was hooked up to an EEG, EKG, and something else. I ended up staying the sleep center for a week, but I didn't sleepwalk during that time and they said staying longer than that likely wouldn't be helpful. One thing they were able to tell me was that my NREM cycle was "off." I'm not too sure what they meant by that.
My doctor has talked about sedatives and anti-psychotic meds to stop the sleepwalking, but I've been on them before and still had my episodes. My doctor said that most teens grow out of sleepwalking, so I'm holding out hope, but it's a hard thing to cope with in the mean time.
Lol, I have some funny sleepwalking stories too. One time I sat at the table with 4 buttered pieces of toast. I was holding one piece up to my ear and I insisted that I was talking to my boyfriend on the phone when my dad asked me what the heck I was doing. He said I carried on a conversation for about an hour! The whole family said they wished that they had caught it on video so they could send it to America's Funniest Home Videos *eye roll* lol
