Sleep Talking caused by Sleep Apnea
Abvgeaneas posted:
My husband has obstructive sleep apnea. He is 29 years old and in great shape and great health overall. He is a rare case. We have gone to a sleep specialist more than once and have had numerous sleep studies. He has even had the UPPP surgery to remove his tonsils, his uvula and a piece of his soft palette to help with the apnea. This is almost worked. The problem is that he has a horrible case of sleep talking. He talks every night and sometimes every hour of every night. I don't know what to do but it's effecting my sleep, my mood, my work. I'm tired all the time because i'm constantly telling him to be quiet all night long. Is there any cure for this? Is there anything we can do to stop this sleep talking so we can both get a peaceful night's sleep???

Dear Alicia (Abvgeaneas),

I am sorry to hear about the sleep problems interrupting your life. Has your husband been to a sleep specialist to discuss the sleep talking issue?

If you look at page two on this article about Parasomnias , it mentions sleep talking. I think you should really encourage your husband to go back and be re-evaluated. Otherwise, you may have to discuss the option of sleeping apart on nights before work days.

Best wishes,

pattiyan responded:
It is not a case of RHD is it, wher he gets violent as wsell as the talking? Although it is usually old men that get that.
Abvgeaneas replied to pattiyan's response:
He gets violent sometimes. But mostly uses profanity and yells and screams. When he wakes up he never remembers what he does or says during his sleep.
