Recently, I was talking with a few friends about sleep talking. One of my friend sleep talks all the time and I have done it plenty of times myself. So I got to researching sleeptalking on WebMD and found a few interesting facts.
Sleep talking, or somniloquy, is very common and not really a serious medical condition. The somniloquy could range from something completely harmless to rather vulgar diatribes. Many sleep talkers could speak for about 30 seconds, but talk many times during the night. For the most part, however, sleep talking is completely harmless. Though, if it becomes a problem it is usually another serious sleep disorder.
REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) and sleep terrors can cause people to shout, scream, and thrash in their sleep. Seeing a doctor about RBD and sleep terrors is recommended to stop any unnecessary actions during sleep. However, there is no real way to reduce sleep talking.
Avoiding stress and getting more sleep may be the way to reduce sleep talking. If sleep talking becomes too much of a problem, be sure to check with your doctor. Your doctor will able to give you a list of treatment options to help with sleep talking.
