Post Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Behavior Disorder

In his 2012 autobiographical film, "Sleepwalk With Me", the comedian Mike Birbiglia brought attention to this disorder, which causes him to act out his dreams in real life. The phenomenon became particularly problematic for him after he jumped through a second story hotel window in a dream about escaping a missile, landing him in the emergency room with glass wounds. (The disorder differs from typical sleepwalking in that people with REM behavior disorder usually remember what they were doing in the dream.) The diagnosis is reportedly often preceded by dream enactment episodes resulting in injury to the person or the partner with whom they share a bed.
