Have you ever wondered where in New York State the most people sleepwalk? Shockingly it isn't New York City.

What Causes Sleepwalking?

According to NHS, the exact cause of sleepwalking is unknown. What they do know though is that it seems to run in families. You're more likely to sleepwalk if other members of your close family have or had sleepwalking behaviors or night terrors.

The following things can trigger sleepwalking or make it worse:

- not getting enough sleep
- stress and anxiety
- infection with a high temperature, especially in children
- drinking too much alcohol
- taking drugs
- certain types of medicine, such as some sedatives
- being startled by a sudden noise or touch, causing abrupt waking from deep sleep
- waking up suddenly from deep sleep because you need to go to the toilet

Other sleep disorders that can cause you to frequently wake up suddenly during the night, can also trigger a sleepwalking episode.
