Two of my sons tell me they've experienced this and now NYU Professor Dr. Michael Gelb confirms sleep texting is now being classified as a parasomnia just like sleep walking. Here are some interesting facts.
The condition is more prevalent in teens and young adults because “they’re pretty much attached to the phone like an appendage.”
Sleeptexting usually occurs in the two hours after a person falls asleep, interrupting a period of deep restorative sleep that the body needs to replenish the brain after a long day.
Episodes of sleeptexting can increase for people taking certain medications, including sleep aids like Ambien.
As for a treatment, Gelb recommends shutting down all electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bed to give the brain time to unwind. It also obviously helps if you don’t fall asleep while holding your phone.

The Vatican has recalled a collection of precious metal collectible coins meant to commemorate Pope Francis, because the name "Jesus" was misspelled as "Lesus."
The Catholic News Service (CNS) tweeted a picture of the medal, which was released Monday, and which was ringed with an embossed Bible passage in Latin, reportedly a favorite of the new pontiff. The snippet was translated perfectly into the dead language, but the easy part -- Jesus' name -- fell to a simple typo.
Four were sold before the mistake was found, immediately making them collectors' items.
