Why do I thrash out in my sleep?

In the last month I have punched the wall twice in my sleep. The most recent was last night where I dreamed I had lashed out at someone, I woke up just as my fist hit the wall.

I am not an aggressive person at all so this behaviour in my sleep is disturbing me. Not only that a few months ago I started kicking my fiancee in his **** because I dreamt he was being attacked by a dog.

Any ideas why a person would lash out in their sleep?

(No sarcastic answers please)

i've hit the person i was sleeping next to before, but if it's always happening, maybe a trip to a sleep clinic is a good idea. they might have some insight that we don't have.
