Hi Mr Santosh,

Thank you for posting your query.

The possibilities in your case are seizures (epilepsy) or a sleep disorder, as all your events are occurring during sleep.

You would benefit from investigations such as polysomnography (sleep studies) and overnight sleep EEG.

You would improve with proper treatment.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
