Narcolepsy, masturbating in sleep. Naming stranger during episodes. Help

I masturbate in my sleep and have been diagnosed with narcolepsy . My doctor has prescribe me something to take at night for the movement issues including the masterbation, twitching, etc. I also have another concern, I say another mans name during these episodes and it really hurts my husband. The name I say I do not know this person. And I feel my doctor is not taking the issue seriously as it is greatly affecting mt marriage. Please help before my husband leaves me over this.

Hi
Every thing which you are doing in sleep is in REM phase better known as dreaming sleep
It is well known that physical activites some time comlex one are performed in this phase of sleep
In my experience no drug works as most of the drug are known to increase REM phase .Some time i try SSRI anti depressant REm sleep physical activities
As you perform masturbation and take some male name as per Great Freud Sleep and dreams theory you want sex at that time or want sex begore sleep or dreaming about sexual activity at that time which you may not temeber afterwards Nothing wrong or abnormal
The husband is best help He should have sex before you go to sleep and if he notices you doing such an act during sleep he should wake you up and induge into sexual or mastutbating activity with you thus helping you out of your unconscious feelings He should immediately make you to cry for his name
lastly remove your guilt feeling talk to your husband he will unfestand and you will happy married life If required. Please do take help of psychiatrist where both of you discuss with psychistrist the situation and solution
