Question

My cousin who is now 26yrs old has had difficulty learning but was never diagnosed of any sleeping disorder.
A year ago he started having these episodes in his sleep where it looks like someone is attacking him. He will do things like bang himself against a wall. Resently he banged his eye against the dressing table such that his eye was bleeding. he does not remember any of this in the morning.
Not even a bad dream...please help me.
