(KTVI) - Do you ever wake up and not know where you are? You're groggy and fuzzy and even you might have a conversation. How much of it do you remember? Guess what, you're sleep drunk.
That's really a thing! Is it dangerous? Can you stop it? Those are questions for our sleep expert Dr. Joseph Ojile from the Clayton Sleep Institute.
It's called "confusional arousal"...as many as 1 in 7 people may have this disorder.
Certain people are more likely than others to suffer from sleep drunkeness.
Mainly people suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, alcoholism, panic or post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety seemed more susceptible to the disorder, as did those with sleep apnea, a disorder in which a person briefly stops breathing during sleep, the researchers said.
