Wink Do You Dream In Sound or In Silence?

Ok, I was asked by a relative if when I dream, do I dream of sounds and speech and stuff in my dreams or is it like my real life. In other words are you deaf in your dreams?.....
I realized that some of my dreams are of sounds that I remember from my hearing life. Sounds that I use to hear but no longer do. Most of the dreams I remember in the morning are silent. So I ask you, do you dream in sound or silence?

Have fun and remember to keep this friendly!! no argueing pls.......

I can hear some sounds only when I am wide wake, like listening to the music, for instance but dream in silence. How strange... I never thought about it.

Interesting, I do find that I dream in sound and music despite being born deaf but I can hear sounds with HA's and the CI.

Even as I type while my CI is off and that everything is quiet, I still "hear" sounds in my head. What's interesting is that if I rub something, scratch my head or type, I can "hear" those sounds like skkk-skkk-skkk, shhh-shhh-shhh, or tap-tap-tap.

I grew up with hearing for most of my life, but had severe-profound hearing loss for 10 years. I now have bilateral CIs, but I still dream in sound. I'm also totally blind, so sound is all I really have to dream in except for texture and scents.

That's interesting because my dreams have reflected my vision loss over the years as well. Now I might see some colors in my dreams, but they are primarily in sounds, textures and scents.

I have a friend who became totally blind at age 18 and she had a similar experience as you.

A late deafened friend of mine did as well, but in her case, she began to lose clarity of speech in her dreams as her hearing loss continued to decline.

Something I've noticed over the years is even though I couldn't understand speech well when I had severe-profound hearing loss, I could always hear perfectly in my dreams. Go figure.

silence along with taste, smell, feel and colorful powerful vivid dreams. Of course use sometime sign language or telepathy.

I never thought of this but I think I do not wear a HA in my dreams! I will have to remember to check this out tonight in my dream! I can hear fine in my dreams. I heard that blind people can see in their dreams.

Some can, some can't. Depends on if you were born blind, if you're totally blind, and if your dreams reflect your vision in real life.

This thread is interesting!

I mostly dream in silence as far as the actual content of my dream, even as far as people in my life who in the waking world only communicate with me through text, but in my dreams, they are signing fluently. However, when I wake, I sometimes recall music that was somehow playing in the background of my dreams, but not affecting my dreams.

Sometimes in real life I can hear well enough to listen to music, which I enjoy very much, but speech makes no sense to me, and it is rarely exist in my dreams. Sometimes, I dream stressful situation I can hear people talking, I'm struggling to understand them, but I don't think I ever dream that I can understand speech. There's usually no sound in my dreams except the background music that I don't notice until I wake.
