I do. They say many aspies tend to sleepwalk even when they're adults. Do you guys do so? Or else, do you talk while you're asleep? :D

I've sleepwalked during prolonged periods of stress. Sleep talking is something I've done nearly all my life. Apparently I don't mumble words but enunciate.

I do strange movements with my arms when I'm sleeping but I don't sleepwalk as far as I know.

I have ...what's correct? sleep-walked or slept walked ? Anyway, I have done it through childhood and some years of my adulthood. I actively worked at staying put when asleep but haven't gotten past the point of still waking up on my feet, in fighting stance, whenever startled during sleep. And, I'm reasonably sure I still talk (and, now, Sign) in my sleep.

I did on a few occasions as a child, but not as an adult.

^ - I've heard I toss and turn and thrash about like a wild beast. I don't sleepwalk though, unless I am crazy drunk and haven't gone to bed yet. Which hasn't happened since I quit drinking.

When I was a kid, yes, occasionally. These days, technically no, but it feels like it from the moment I get out of bed to the moment I return.

The whole damned day feels like sleepwalking. :roll:

I don't sleepwalk. (I do have a problem with snoring, though. :lol:)

I've been known to sleepwalk/ talk in my sleep but it's rare and it's usually down to either exhaustion or stress.

Like the day before i was due to start my paper job type thing, i went to bed early and about 12 at night my mum hears someone at the front door so she goes to see who it was, im there in skimpy underwear saying that the paperman was there and that i was late for my round.


Oh erm, when i was really young my mum had a dressing table with a huge mirror, my mum woke up and i was sitting on the dresser with my legs crossed and my hands out to the mirror. It scared her but she got up and put me in my bed. It happened again for the next two nights in a row, by the third time it happened my mum was too scared to get out of bed so she got my dad to do it and they got rid of the dresser the next day. I suppose that might have been sleep walking :D.

Exactly why are Aspies exclusively prone to sleep-walking as adults, and who says?

I've never, ever slept-walked in my life, so will I suddenly start soon?


One unique thing is, I have terrible sinus trouble but I never ever snore in my sleep (I've been told).
