 Man With Sleeping Disorder Cooks While Asleep

A new media report has revealed that a UK man cooks and paints the ceiling in his sleep due to a rare sleeping disorder.

Steve Chapman from Overton, Hants said that once his wife came home to find a stepladder in the lounge after he had painted the ceiling but couldn't remember it, the Daily star reported.

The 57-year-old has also cooked meals for himself while he was asleep and has no recollection of the episodes.

He has been diagnosed with Kleine-Levin Syndrome, which affects around one in a million people and some sufferers do not even wake up for months.

Chapman, who works as a machine assistant for a banknote printer De La Rue, manages to keep his condition under control with medication.
