Default Who else has felt pain in their dreams?

I sleep light, wake up at the slightest pressure change or noise in my bedroom (door closed), I have army like senses I can remember 2 times in the past, both years apart, waking up to a dream where I was falling from the roof of a tall building. The catch is I actually felt my body impact the ground, which threw me up from my sleeping position in a sweaty, feverish, discombobulation. I guess I can say I know what it feels like to almost die. I know its freaky, but most of my family has had similar dreams of flying but never hitting ground. I'm glad this has only happened twice in my life and I'm still young, I could probably wake up having a heart attack if I was much older, this scares me.
But, last night was even freakier, I'll try to explain it like it happened. I slowly fell asleep facing the wall, laying on my side, with my hands under the pillow supporting my head with a thin bed sheet and light comforter on me. It felt like less then a 1/2 hour of actual sleep when in my dream I started to feel as if I was touching something but could not pull my hands back from it, next I start to feel some weight being applied to my entire body as I half-arse wake from the dream (it felt as if a girlfriend was slowly bending over me to see if I was asleep or awake with her hand on my shoulder...but this was not the case, I sleep alone). Seconds after I feel the sheets start to pull away from my shoulder and the noise of it was the loudest thing in the room, I tried to speak but couldn't (now I start to freak out) the sheets are still being pulled off of me slowly (like a dog would pull sheets from a bed) and I start to break out ina sweat..no one should be in my room, no one! I can't turn around and I lie there frozen until I yell out a "ghuhuu"...immediately spring out of bed to see my door closed and no one in the room.
This has been bothering me all day, do I have a ghost in my house?
Anyone else experience similar dreams where they wake up knowing what just happened?

This sux,
Jay

That impact feeling you felt is your soul snapping back into your body. When you sleep your soul hovers above your physical body. If someone attempts to move your physical body your soul will do that out of fear of not finding its way back..

Ok believe it or don't. I've read about stuff like that.

2 nights ago, I dreamed I was ridding in a H2. Except the back end was open, like a real Hummer. Whoever was driving was doing a lot of e-brake turns and swinging the end out. I was sitting in the back when all of a sudden he does a turn and the rear tires hit a curb and the car rolls, throwing me out.
All of a sudden, I stand up, and realize I am holding the top 1/4 of my skull (with some brains in it) in my hand. So then I call an ambulance, and it takes like 30 min to show up. Fo rthat entire dream time, I had this numb, but obvious pain in my head.

If you ever got a second degree burn, and know how the imediate area kinda hurts, but the area arround it hurts even more... it was kinda like that.

When I woke up, and my head was intact, I was incredibly relieved that the top of my head was there. It was deffinately one of the most vivid dreams I've ever had, pain included.

Could be one of many things. Do Google searches for astral projection or level 1 REM sleep. Dreams in REM sleep feel like hallucinations because you're actually taking input from your physical surroundings. A simple draft could be magnified to the feeling of sheets being pulled from you. Laying on your arm wrong so it falls asleep could feel like burning or freezing while asleep.

Happens to me all the time. My most common one is when I move into REM and experience a falling sensation. My eyes are open, I'm conscious of my surroundings, I'm looking at the ceiling, but I'm still asleep and my brain is providing visuals in dreamland. I feel like I'm sliding down over the edge of a roller coaster and, just when I get the zero-g freefall feeling in the pit of my stomach, I exit REM and wake up.

I had a dream where I was having a restless night in my bed, I turn to my side to find a cold spot where "she" (name withheld) should've been and felt a sinking feeling in my heart. I then realized something when I woke up...I need to start seeing other people.

Yes, you have a ghost in your room.

In my dreams I've been on fire, shot, blown to pieces (only to reconstitute myself), fallen from a few buildings and had my arse kicked (more a reliving of a memory than a true dream).
All of which I've felt the sensation of pain or so I thought. Also I woke up sweaty and even once jumped up fighting myself throwing forearms and elbows. Mrs. Janq thought it was hilarious.

Don't worry. Just leave cookies for the ghost and don't eat protein before going to sleep.

i have, everyone has pain in their dreams even if they don't realize it


the definition of "pain" is strange. according to dictionary.com it is an "unpleasant sensation", which is very true. if you somehow become hurt (severe or not), say you get a papercut... your cells are edited because of the tear in your skin, and your nerves see that blood being exposed to the air. your nerves will send a message w/ a big fat warning light flashing to your brain. your brain is like "WHOA SHIIETT" and that's where the "PAIN" begins. your brain is telling you something is wrong, and the only way it can do that is by pain. it's a way for our body to alert/warn (or 'communicate') with our current being and our senses.


i hope that made sense to you -- also, there is absolutely nothing wrong with your sleep patterns. if this is becoming a serious problem w/ a partner then the only resort is sleep medications. i'm not going to share my opinion on how i feel about those medications though because you should decide for yourself what you want to put your body through.

if you decide to travel that route be sure your doctor reccomends a certified sleep-apnea specialist. no, you most likely don't have sleep-apnea.. but those docs seriously know every SINGLE thing about what us humans are doing while we sleep.

I actually had this happen to me myself. I've actually looked it up, and I think I know what you're talking about.

It's when you're half awake in your dream, and you're dreaming about something, but you can't move, and you are trying so hard to get up, but you can't. It happens to me when I sleep on my back. Go to www.google.com and type in Sleep Paralysis.

Back in the day people thought that it was like...ghosts or spirits trying to kill you, because at times you will see or feel something hovering over you, when you're in this state. The thing about it is, when you go to sleep, your body releases these hormones that paralyze you, which how your body recovers itself. If you're in that REM state, and you suddenly wake up, Sleep Paralysis is what is happening.

There was a case in China that sleep paralysis was linked to Sudden Noctournal Death Syndrome, as a buncha guys down there were sleeping face up, and in each case, every one of them had a fixed "horrified" look on their face.

Maybe I'm totally talking about the wrong thing, and this is NOT what you're experiencing. Lol, that would suck.

Either way, when I experienced it, I was sleeping on my back, and suddenly I heard some voices, of people talking, like doctors, or something. I wanted to curl my blanket up over my chest, but I couldn't move. Then I tried getting up, and I was straining my neck real hard, trying to push myself up. I could actually feel my eye twitching, because I was struggling to move. After a bit of struggling, I started trying to yell out, and when I could finally hear myself trying to yell out, I got up. It was crazy. My heart was racing, and everything else....

I've felt pain before, but I also taste stuff in my dreams. Once I was dreaming about cheese and I suddenly woke up all hungry and with a mad craving for provolone.

Ok believe it or don't. I've read about stuff like that.
I've been told this as well... I've had about 3 "sleep paralisys" dreams where I've felt that I can't move, can't speak. One I "woke up", got out of bed walked down the hall and fell infront of the piano. It felt like I couldn't walk. I couldn't speak, or get up. When I woke up for real, I wasn't sure. I tried to talk and my face felt numb, like I forgot how to talk!

Two nights ago I had one where I was above my body by only like 1 foot. I was looking down and could sense it, but not really "see" my body still in bed. When I woke up, it felt like I fell out of something and hit hard.

I usually get these if I sleep in a lot. Strange stuff.

This is almost exactly what I experienced last night, wanting to move my body, hands, legs, or even speak was almost straining as if the power to do so was swiped away from me. But thats what scared me out of bed, these moments of suspended fear I somehow overcame and got a "yelp" out of my mouth to completly wake myself up.

I have never experienced the looking down at yourself "out-of-body" dream.

Hopefully tonight I'll resume to my natural sleep pattern of women, cars, and food.

I experienced this about 5 times when I was in my teens. Usually it was low light in my room and the walls would look to be stretching out at a nominal pace, tweaked me out b/c of the visuals as well...and the entire time your awake!

I actually enjoy the rollercoaster dreams, I get them the night after Six Flags Great America rides

Very true.
I'm adept at 'disallowing' and/or 'absorbing' it.
Takes practice though.
