laughing in sleep


Posted by paul on June 27, 1999 at 08:40:36:

for a mumber of years now I have suffered laughing and giggiling fits in my sleep.Some mornings I wake to the room full of hsterical laughter from myself and the sight of my girlfreind sitting on the end of the bed at the end of her tether. She tells me it is very frightening, especially in the middle of the night when all is quite and still, then she is suddenly wakened by my manic laughter, you can see the problem cant you. I also know that I am very tired after one of these bouts and very edgy and on the point of blowing a fuse all the time. This happens on a regular basis and I would love to hear if anyone knows why I should laugh as much during my sleeping hours. I work a steady shift pattern from 5.30 in the morning to 4.00 in the afternoon. Any help would be gratefully welcome.
