Sleep texting is becoming an all too common parasomnia. It’s right up there with sleepwalking. It affects mostly teenagers and young adults as well as all of us who can’t live without our smartphones.  Sleep texting fragments sleep and may point to additional sleep disorders. Sleep disorders are especially a concern in teens and young adults because their developing brains lack restful NREM or memory enhancing REM sleep. See Dr. Gelb interviewed by Dr. Steve on pix11.
