CORRECT ANSWER: B. Most of the time you will remember the details of a sleepwalking episode.
This statement is false. When you wake up from sleepwalking, you can be very confused. This is because you normally have no memory of the event. Adults sometimes recall bits and pieces of what took place. Less often, they will have a very clear memory of all that happened. The main risk is injury to self, the bed partner, or others in the same home. It can also disrupt the bed partner’s sleep.
Sleepwalking is more common in children than in adults. It is a fairly normal part of a child’s early sleep patterns. Most people do not need to seek medical treatment for sleepwalking. Parents should simply keep a close watch on their child. An adult who continues or begins to sleepwalk is at a greater risk of injury. In this case, it would be a good idea to seek a doctor’s advice.
