My Husband Is Starting To Talk In His Sleep. Is This A Symptom?

My husband has acted out his dreams. It has caused me to wonder if he has Lewy Bodies instead of AD. A social worker told me. It is like different flavors of ice cream. All the forms of dementia are treated the same and have the same end. I suppose she is right. Then he got too affectionate with the nurses, and I thought he had frontotemporal dementia. It turns out acting out dreams and sexual acting out goes with late stage of AD. It doesn't really matter the end is the same.

I would say yes
My husband not only talked in his sleep but would act out some things he was dreaming about. This was in stage 5-6. He would wake up and think his dream was real. Hope this helps. 🌹😊
