Conditions with symptom: 'talking in sleep'
Is it normal for sleep walkers/talkers to be fatigued all the time?? My fiance is a chronic sleep walker and talker and has been his whole life... he constantly compains that he is tired all the time which I think may have somethign to do with his sleep walking and talking... any help please??
Hi Karen I'm no expert or Doctor but I did post on here a few months ago regarding my own night terrors and I like to pop back every now and then to remind myself - its not just me! I thought I could easily answer your question with a simple yes! Even though he's 'asleep' he's kind of not, as far as I know you're in a mid state of sleep (if you get what I mean) if you read up about it on Google you will find a lot of us night terror people are always tired, same as your fiancé it seems. I think he's in the first stages of sleep (I can't remember what it's called sorry!) I kind of came on here looking for a cure. I've been to the Drs too - she said she would look into it and call me (she never did) she said she had never even heard of this problem before. So I can't advise you on how to help him and again the Internet isn't much use I have found and believe you me I have trawled through website after website without finding anything if any help. Just wanted to say that yes he's probably fatigued due to the sleep walking. I hope this helps! Lauren x
Hiya when I'm a sleep I talk and sleep walk and I moan and scream and snore and when I walk up I don't no I done it I get told by my mum is they anything anyone can do about it because it annoys other people in the house.
Hi, im 23 and have had restless nights for a few years now, I have woken up a good few times now out of bed and talking to people in my room (that are not there) I have especially done this when I start a new job or feel anxious about something. I always seem to have a headache, I grind my teeth in my sleep and have to wear a night brace (which I put away in my sleep) I'm light sensitive and generally feel unwell and tired :( please can someone let me know if they have similar experiences or know of a cure as I am desperate!

Hi i answered you but i commented on mine hope you see it :)
I'm a 14 year old white-british female and i sleep a lot in he day. SOMETIMES at night i feel like i am tired but i am not at the same time, and sometimes cannot get to sleep until 5am-6am which is when i have to get up for school. In the daytime i feel sleepy, weather i got to sleep with ease the night before or not, and tend to sleep a lot. My social life is being ruined and i only have a few hours a day with my family. At first i thought it was narcolepsy but i reaserched and the symptoms are similar but not the same. Please could someone tell me whats wrong and how i can prevent it? All help is appreciated, thanks. :]
Hi millie, my 37 year old husband has Narcolepsy but we have learnt there are about 80 different types of sleep disorder. You should push your GP for a sleep test where you spend a night or two being monitored in hospital. Hope this helps
Hi Im Millie aswell , i have had Narcolepsy since i was about 6 or 7 i used to find it really hard to get to sleep but then in the day i was really tired and even falling asleep at school in the day, i dont know exactly how i first got it but the doctors seem to think it was from a virus that attacked my immune system , i also have Cataplexy which is when I laugh my brain thinks its going to sleep , it is definitly worth going to your doctor as i am now on medication that helps with my condition a lot , without taking a lot of it , i am also on medication that helps with sleeping , anyway i hope this might have helped you xx :-)
I had snoring issues and had my self tested, I found the results frightening. essentially my blood oxygen level drops by 60% when I sleep. I am now on cpap but I am now terrified to go to sleep. and rarely manage more than 5 hours of broken sleep. I hate the idea of anyone seeing me like this. I am Darth Vader. I would really just like to know if there is another way. getting drunk is not an option.
I would rather sleep next to someone with a mask and the quiet humm of a CPAP machine then loud obnoxious snoring that wakes me up!
hello my name is Danielle, my parnter is 26 and suffers from night terrors and has done for a while now, first of all when we were together going to sleep the terrors started to calm down and when I wasnt there they got worse, i am always with him now and more often that not he will sleep calmly but then he will have on outbreak where every night is filled with terrors, he bolts straight up in bed, thrashes and sometimes moans or whines in his sleep, I am just wondering if there is anything that can be reccomended to try and make his nights easier when he does have an outbreak as they stress him out and cause him to have no sleep making the terrors worse and it just goes in to a continuious circle sometimes.
i have a big problem with gum desease and my teeeh are bad through smoking my speach is very bad because off this i know this as people tend to ask me to repeat my self so i now tend to try not talking to people and no smiling the dentist i belong too are butchers and i no longer want to go back to them or trust them any more i now can not face going back to any dentist ever i am so much in pain and needs to be sorted out but i rather be put to sleep
Hi I'm a dentist & I deal with people with problem gums all the time. Many are fearful and embarrassed. You need to be seen by a specialist periodontist who specialises in gum disease, they are usually very kind & understand what you are going through. They can treat your gum problems while keeping you comfortable & give you advice about how to help yourself as well. Search the british dental association website or GDC website to find a specialist or ask a trusted friend for a recommendation
I have a problem where when I’m coming out of a dream, I have sudden awareness that I am actually still asleep and panic. I desperately struggle to wake up but my body won’t respond. Eventually when I manage to wake up I am absolutely terrified. This happens a lot. Is this a form of sleep paralysis?Either way, it’s ruining my sleep because I’m often too scared to go to sleep. What's happening to me?
My sisters 16 year old boyfriend has just moved in with us due to being kicked out of his own home. He has been having night terrors nearly every night. They're not normally so bad... Normally just a bit of incoherent talking, but last night he became very physical. He first had an episode of walking across the room incoherently talking, eventually returning back to his bed. Later in the night (early morning around 5am) he began kicking and shouting (the shouting sounded like a "ruh ruh" sound). When my sister tried to wake him (which normally works and knocks him out of it) he unknowingly went for her. I wouldn't say he attacked as he didn't intentionally hurt her as no punches or kicks were thrown at her, he just pinned her down. Obviously this scared my sister senseless (especially since checking used to suffer from night terrors herself at a younger age). He is an amazing kid and the family love him so we just want to make sure we're there for him... But I think this is probably more serious now then just common sleep walking and talking. As I said before, my sister (and also my brother) used to have night terrors when she was younger (screaming, not recognising my parents, telling me to get out the room, amnesia of the event) and after seeing a therapist/doctor/councillor, she grew out of it (only having the occasional night terror, normally when she is woken too quickly due to loud noises). Is there anything we can do for my sisters boyfriend? He has had problems with his anger in the past but went through anger management and displays no signs of problems with his anger during the day. Is the anger manifesting during the night? Or could it be related due to the fact of being kicked out of home? He is from an unstable home and did suffer from night terrors prior to moving in with us.

I've moved in with my girlfriend and am stressed and experiencing night terrors. It's not nice :( I think it's due t stress.
I am 18 and I have anger issues, they have been dealt with and I have had night terrors for as long as I remember I normally sit up scream and lash out, this is caused by my mixture of anger and stress. This was never originally a problem but I now share a bed with my 17 year old girlfriend, I have also caused her injury by lashing out trying to protect myself from threat or what I presume is one. The best advice I can give is for her to leave the room when he is at a bad stage to prevent herself from harm or fear and to let it pass. He is doing this because of the change in routine and of his family environment/situation it should pass but it will help for him to confront/deal with the issues he is facing.
I'm finding it really hard to sleep because i have thrush. Any one have any tips to help me be able to sleep?
My problem is with my snoring and tonsils, I just watch the show and saw the girl that had tonsil stone which i have but i have never seen the doctor over also i have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea. I think my tonsils are to big and are full of holes and take up a lot of my throat. The doctors say they have no affect over my sleep apnoea but i think it does. they have got bigger over the last few years and this seems to be when my apnoea started. I sleep on my stomach and i cannot get used to wearing the CPAP machine.I have been back to the doctors a few times but they just think its all down to my weight but i have been roughly the same weight all my adult life and only the last few years i have had the problems. I have always snored really back even when i was young but nothing was ever done about it. I drool bad at night to and its just getting me down now. It affects my relationship as my partner cannot sleep some nights. Am asking for your advice as my doctors are not doing much about this. Thanks kevin
