At some point in their life, about 1 in 20 adults have night terrors, and 1 in 100 report that they sleep-walk.
Both these conditions are more common in children (163).
Night terrors can happen without sleepwalking.
Like a sleepwalker, a person with night terrors will appear to wake suddenly from a deep sleep. They look half-awake and very frightened, but will usually settle back to sleep without waking up completely. All you can do is sit with them until they fall asleep again.
Night terrors are different from vivid dreams or nightmares as people don't seem to remember anything about them the next morning (163).
