I wonder if this is a form of "sleep walking disorder?" I also wonder if, when you are next with your Dr, that you discuss this and the possibility of a sleep study, and also a check for Diabetes etc. to rule them out.
I am glad you have been in contact with your doctor about this, since increased thirst, night time thirst can be a sign of diabetes.
I too would be concerned about the quality of your sleep; are you getting into the restful deep REM sleep cycle. Inadequate sleep is now showing to be a major risk factor for heart disease, obesity, etc.

I drink a lot of water during the night too. The meds I am on make me thirsty. Unfortunately with all the water I drink I visit the bathroom a lot too! None of this is good for my sleep patterns but thankfully I am able to get back to sleep right away.
Ok this may sound weird to you all-but throughout the night I get up constantly for water-I go through min 16 oz-32oz at night after I laid down...would you all track this on your tracker after you get up in the morning?
