Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
it sounds like she could be having night terrors
or nightmares when she sleeps.
this can affect her sleep and cause you poor sleep as well.
sometimes medications like SSRI antidepressants can help decrease night terrors.
also counseling by a psychologist might help as well.
talk to your partner about this
and she can talk to her GP about these options as well
let me know if you have other questiosn.
she also has diabetise and blood pressure
sometimes in rare cases low blood sugars in the middle of the night can cause behavior changes as well.
so she might need to test her sugars in the middle of the night to see if she is hypoglycemic then which could be causing these terrors and her lashing out.
does this make sense?
do you have other questions?
she just has to be fully sleeping for a few minutes when she does this
it sounds like she has pretty regular nightmares and night terrors when she sleeps.
this is a medical condition and can be treated.
she might benefit from antidepressant medications
sometimes a sleep study can help document these events as well.
a sleep study is when a sleep doctor studies a patient when they are sleeping and records events.
she should still talk to her doctor about these episodes and see if treatment would help.
let me know if you have other questions.
