Talking while asleep, able to carry out a meaningful conversation. Cause of concern?

Hello, my name is XXXXX. I had this conversation with my sister quite a while ago, but the thing is i was completely asleep yet i was still answering my sister. Apparently my answers were relevant to her conversation so we were in all reality having a regular conversation....but i was asleep. I do not remember this event occuring the next day when my sister had asked me if I had remembered what we had talked about last night. I usually dont talk in my sleep, is this normal?

Talking in sleep once in a while is not really completely abnormal and it can be ignored. Only if it becomes a regular feature, then you need to go for evaluation of it. If your night sleep is refreshing, you don't feel sleepy during the day and there are no major medical problems then you can relax and wait and watch. If problem persists, you need to consult a sleep specialist and go through some tests like polysomnography.
Good luck.
