User :   Hi, I was wondering if there were any sleeping disorders known to the medical world that are connected to schizophrenia. I am experiencing some schizophrenic symptoms during the night and I don't know if they're due to the sleep or if I actually have schizophrenia. && no, it's not just sleepwalking or sleeptalking because I remember most of what happens sometimes all of what happens, and I'm actually awake. For example, if someone was to come in and talk to me that actually existed, I'd be able to talk to them, and I'd know they were there.
Doctor :   no
User :   do happen to know whats wrong with me?
