Does not sound norma: That is certainly a possiblity and there are other "parasomnias" that can cause this behavior. This is easily clarified with a sleep study which a primary care doctor can arrange. During a sleep study brain waves and patterns are measured and epileptic behavior would likely be detected. It would also be noteworthy to keep a log before any appointment as to how he feels after sleeping like that.
