Thank you for posting your query.
The symptoms you have described are most likely due to seizures. What I suggest is, if possible, please record this event that happens at night, with your mobile camera and show it to your neurologist
in your next visit. We can make out whether it is a seizure or a bad dream reaction after looking at the event.
However, in some cases, it may not be definite, then, a long term video EEG may be planned to confirm the diagnosis.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
