I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem. For about two months now I have been talking in my sleep as clear as day. Scaring my son in the next room to death. My pharmasist looked at my large med list and could not find anything he though would promote this. This is really starting to worry me. Last night I was giving directions to somewhere to someone.

Some input please on this post,
Carrie

Hi Carrie .

Yess im doing it all the time having full on conversations when im sleeping.
my boyfriend said he is startled im going on for ages reall talking even shouting somtimes......it worried me.
my mother has seen me loads of times worried somthing was wrong with me in the next room she came in to hear me taking a job interview talking asif i was awake.

yes i found a cause of it over thinking or worrying its like your dreams when you constantly think of someone or somthing you dream it.

but some people talk about it in there sleep.

how long do you do this for carrie?

Usually every night now and at least one conversation a night sometimes more. But mine make no sense from what my son told me. Sometimes, in sentences and others just a few words. But only thing is, I can't see who it is I am talking to. Like there is no one special. Like I said last night with the directions. I don't remember doing it or even who I was talking to.
Sometimes it is just one time a night, others it is a couple at different times. Makes me feel kinda nuts. I have never talked in my sleep untill now. Really wierd and unsettling.

I am like you are sometimes Jodie. I am always as clear as day and well understood. That is the worst part. My late greatgrandmother with age started doing this. Use to scare the guts out of me when I use to sleep next to her in bed as a kid. Nanny was a great woman! I remember this one night as it was yesterday. All of a sudden she starts yelling "Carol's (my given name) is in the snow'! I thought I was going to have a stroke at age 13.

Jodie, you and I and the rest of the gang will get through this. This is not a bed of roses world we live in right now. I really don't think it ever was or ever will be. But, we have to learn our own servival tecniques and use them when we need them. And we will overcome and we will servive! You just can NOT let it rule you. You are in control and you and the rest of us have to make the best of our lives while we have the chance. And together we can make a difference.

Hugs,
Carrie

I am hanging in there Jodie. Just waiting for Wed for my neurosurgeon visit for the ulimate decission. Other than that the Vicodin is working well. Got a lot on my plate right now with this decission on my back. Kinda anxious for sure.
Hope you are doing well also and thank-you so much for asking. I think all of us have to live just one day at a time and try and take things in a positive rather then negitive way. We live in a negitive world, why add to it eh?
All we can do is the best we can do and live every day as it was our last. Easier said then done, I know.

In My Thoughts,
Carrie

Does it usually make sense? Or is it a bunch of random stream of consciousness? I've been a sleep talker on and off, but I think my babble comes out as nonsense to anybody who actually hears it!

Well mine is just the opposite. Clear as day. As if the person was there or on the phone with me.
See, this is all new to me. I have never had anyone tell me I talked in my sleep. And seems I have always shared a room with someone family or husband at one time or another up untill less then a year ago. Just seems so wierd that it started about a little over a month ago and I have had A&D since childhood. I just can't understand.

It could be simply from your anxiety, especially now with all that you're dealing with. As long as it's just talking, and you're not wandering around, eating, or trying to drive, you shouldn't really have to worry.

Of course, if it lasts past your surgery and you're all better except you're still talking in your sleep, maybe you could see a sleep clinic about it.

Still praying for ya hon Smile

Thanks Danielle,
Yes, prayers are already starting to be answered. I hope and pray the the surgeon will at least re-X-Ray the area. Believe me, all the prayers are heard. Thank- you again. Well let you all know how I make out tomorrow morning when I come home. I have a 10:30am appt in Tampa. Hour to and from plus appt. Should be home around noon or so.
