Hello, i was told by my GP there was nothing could be done

Resolved Question:

Hello, i was told by my GP there was nothing could be done for my problem?
I have terrible dreams and my girlfriend has to jump out of bed as i get really aggressive.
Not the case in reality as i am a very friendly easy going person.
I woke up the other night and fists and a leg was sore as had been fighting in my sleep. I had been punching and kicking furniture etc as had a dream about school days and bullying. I am 65 next week. HELP.

No testing at all

OK
So there are many conditions that might set this off, and you heed to see a doctor to be checked for
neurological exam
Seizure disorder
sleep apnea
Other sleep disorder
thyroid disease
Psychological problems are not as likely, given that this happens only in sleep, but are possible as well.
