    Can people cough in their sleep?

    I would imagine so what with it being an involuntary reaction to a number of things, but here's a followup: can they cough in their sleep and continue sleeping without waking up for even a split second?

    I've never heard anyone cough and then noticed they were still asleep, so either people don't cough in their sleep, they always wake up to their own coughing, or Finland's just weird again!
    Bring it, big boy.

    It's like a sore beat... You just can't dig it.

    Probably.

    And even if you can't, it's highly likely you're only awake for such a tiny amount of time that you don't even remember it.

    I'm pretty sure anyone can do any natural bodily function in their sleep.

    They can. My girlfriend often coughs, and I can tell from her breathing she's sleeping. I've often asked her about it and she never remembers it.

    Myself, I even answer questions when I'm asleep. One time my friends taped it in the morning. Sometimes it even makes sense what I say. But more often I'll reply with some weird nonsense. Later when I'm awake my girlfriend tells me what I said, and I never remember it.

    If people couldn't cough in their sleep, I probably wouldn't have slept much in the past week.

    I do believe that babies are able to cough in their sleep (as well as just about anything else).

    My last girlfriend spoke Telugu in her sleep. Does that count?

    In 2002 or so I apparently spoke in my sleep and I purportedly talked about JK2 editing, JED and even mentioned GBK and cogs at one point.

    That seems more like a state than a function.
