I often wake my husband, trying to figure out who he is. I see people who aren't there. I once crawled off the end of the bed and separated my shoulder. I'm wondering what medications you are on in case it is the same with me. I take tramadol and propranolol, I think it may be one of them..

I am a 33-year-old male. I've been sleepwalking since childhood. My mom who is 65 and her brothers all sleepwalk too -- throughout their entire lives. I sometimes sit up in my bed at night and see things or people that are not there. My wife tells me my eyes are wide opened and I look scared. I talk in my sleep and have even pushed my wife because I didn't recognized her in our bed and thought she was some stranger. In extreme cases of nightmares I have been known to actually get up and try to flee the room. This is on and off. I can be weeks or months without having an episode..
