A variety of undesirable symptoms can accompany sleepwalking. When compared with a control group of non-sleepwalkers, symptoms for sleepwalkers may include:
A higher frequency of daytime sleepiness
Symptoms of anxiety and depression
Lowered quality of life.
Placing themselves in harm’s way
Acting out dangerous behaviors
Dr. Dauvilliers has pointed out that “Adult sleepwalking is a potentially serious condition and the consequences of sleepwalking episodes should not be ignored.”
