    Default Weird question, but does anyone know anything about adult sleep disorders?

    My DH tells me I sleep with my limbs extended all the time.

    As in;
    *arm straight up in the air, OR
    *knee bent at 90 degrees in the air (calve parallel to mattress)

    He said he often watches my arm or leg attempt to flop to one side, and I keep repositioning it to keep it in the air. This can go on for hours (apparently) he also says I 'roll' all night in the same direction. Taking the blankets with me.

    Anyone know anything about anything like this?

    Bahahaha that's a bit funny trish re:spider comming to get him.

    Does it bother you? Eg do you wake up tired?

    I just think it's fascinating and wonder how it's possible to sleep for hours (especially holding my leg up)

    This could explain why I have such toned legs (and such a bad back) with no effort

    Hmmm... If it feels like its affecting your quality of sleep I'd be seeing a doctor for it who can then refer you on to a sleep specialist.
    DH has UARS, a form of sleep apnea, and as to use a CPAP. Not the same as your situation, but until he was diagnosed his quality of sleep was shocking.
