I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced similar things. Sometimes, when I wake up I still see remnants of my dream. It seems very real at the time. I used to run out of bed or put the covers over my head. Now, I no longer do that and try to stay calm and close my eyes then open them again. Often, I also hear random phrases before falling asleep or waking up too. For instance, today I woke up right in the middle of my dream (as always) and I saw in front of me a man with boxing gloves practicing punching. I didn't panic and closed my eyes and then opened them and I was alright. Also, when I wake up like this I am very disorienting sometimes and sort of confused. Although, I always know where I am and such. I almost feel an intense "high" feeling when this happens. It is bizarre. I am contemplating asking my doctor to refer me for a sleep study to see what is going on. Maybe I am skipping some cycles of sleep? Your experiences and input would be much appreciated. Thank you!
