A 50-year-old member asked:

Can you suddenly turn into a sleep walker?

Dr. Donald Hazlett
Psychiatry 54 years experience
That can happen.: Sleep walking is more common in children. It is also more common under stress. Some medications such as Ambien (zolpidem) can precipitate sudden bouts of sleep walking and eating. Generally sleep walkers do not hurt themselves but they can. Sleepwalking in children dissipates in adolescence usually. Sleep talking is also common in children. Random sudden sleepwalking in adults is rare.

Is it possible for you to wear a walker boot whilst sleeping?

Yes: In fact, one part of treatment for plantar fasciatis is the wearing of a boot to keep the foot at a 90 degree angle to help reduce adhesions and subsequent tearing of them in the morning. Also keeps tendons, etc. Stretched in that position. A little tough rolling over , though. Good luck.
