    Speaking while sleeping ?

    My wife has told me several times that i'm speaking in my sleep...but I can't remember any word that I speak. When I woke up in the morning, she said that last night you were talking yourself. Is it normal or not ? If it's not then how to cure it ?

    Well, one of my roommates used to do this. He used to blabber incoherently sometime after he fell asleep. When he started sleeptalking, I or the other room-mates just used to slap him awake as soon as he started blabbering. It did seem to stop his sleep talking for that night at least.

    Sleeping in your sleep is normal, but potentially humiliating among adults. It is readily observable among kids. One of the tips available in the net to minimize talking in your sleep is to reduce stress levels as much as possible. Most of us go to to sleep with stressed out mind and body. From one of the seminars I have attended, I go through a guided meditation that relaxes the body from the head down, before sleeping. We need to be deliberate about relaxing our mind and body, otherwise, sleep may betray us of our most tightly guarded secrets.

    I think that this is where it is really important to do some kind of wind down activity or meditation. Ask your doctor about this one but I have heard people who take Melatonin before bed sleep talk less.

    My cousin speaks when she's asleep. I find it fascinating because I can talk to her and she would answer my questions. It's like she's awake because her speech is very clear. Maybe someday scientists can find a way to emulate this behavior so that criminals can confess the crimes that they have committed.

    I have the same problem...I don't admit it but my roommate told me that I was saying something about changing the exhaust of a car one night. I don't know how to cure it, but to me it happens only when I talked the previous that about a thing that fascinates me.

    In college I shared a room with 3 other girls. We had all fallen asleep one night watching a movie and the door was unlocked. One of our neighbors knocked but getting no answer and hearing what she thought was the TV popped her head in and said 'hello?' Nobody answered her of course but apparently she heard us talking in the bedroom so went in there thinking we just hadn't heard her. How surprised was she to walk in and find us all asleep and carrying on a complete and coherent conversation! It hasn't happened since but that was pretty funny to say the least. Freaked her right out.

    Wow, heavy that is a little freaky! I can't imagine walking in on a room of sleeping people and hearing them carrying on a conversation like they were awake! I do talk in my sleep. My sister used to ask me to borrow clothing in high school while I was asleep because she knew I would answer. Then when I was looking for it she would be like "I asked you last night"!

    I know someone who used to do this only it was bad because everything in his subconscious would come out... it ended up causing his divorce. He went to the Dr after that and got a sleep medication and that seems to have cured it.
