> I've always had this problem & nothing seems to make it stop,I hit in my sleep my husband has gotting a black eye because of me,& some times the kides come in our bed in the middle of the night to sleep w/ us.My husband had to stop me from hitting my daughter( when i was asleep of course).It's becoming more & more of a problem,I don't know why i do it or how to stop it from happen anymore?My Dr. thinks it's PTSD.So should i just buy my husband body gear or get twin beds?

Why does your doctor think you have PTSD? He may be right. Did he indicate that these incidents were night-terrors? Do you automatically wake up when this happens, or are you awakened only by the impact of punching something or knocking something over? Are you in a state of great fear upon awakening?

I have had similar experiences while taking certain medications. The last time this happened to me, I was taking Parnate and imipramine in combination. This side effect disappeared shortly after I discontinued Parnate. I'm guessing that Effexor and Lamictal may also be capable of this.

Is there anything to which you can attribute it becoming more of a problem recently? Medication? Stress?

I bet certain medications would help the situation. I don't have a clue as to which ones.

Someone more knowledgeable of sleep-disorders will hopefully post a reply.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Perhaps you could wear "socker-boppers". (You must be at least forty years old to understand this).
