Description: I have been having regular nightmare dreams since having a hysterectomy. The dreams are so vivid and I can only relate them to psychological thriller type films. They usually involve me being unable to talk or move at some point in the dream and sometimes I know I am dreaming but I just can't get out of if because I feel paralyised and my mouth is trying to form words but it takes superhuman effort to actually move or speak. I often find myself in the dreams I have having to pull something out of my mouth like long continuous threads of cotton, or in the case of last night, it was firm clear bubbles that were filled with a thick substance, and I can actually feel the sensation of bringing these bubbles up and then forming in mouth before I have to spit them out. In the dream I kept trying to put the bubbles into pots to prove that these things had come from my mouth and to show people, and at one stage I ask someone what they are, and they tell me it is cancer! They are truly disturbing and I often dread going to sleep. Most of my dreams have a start, middle and end, and the one last night involved me and a family (sometimes some of my own family, but mainly people I don't know, but I can see the faces clearly) who are taken over by other peoples bodies (oh, this does sound so wierd)and we take over theirs and live as them for a day or however long. It is much more involved, but would take pages to write it all down. I rarely have pleasant dreams and most of them are like thrillers you see in films. Another physical thing that I feel is that my body feels as though it is juddering and whirring, and my husband says he can sometimes feel my body shaking. Also, my dreams seem to have a 'supernatural' theme. I always remember them in vivid detail and they are so realistic that it scares me. I do take a drug called 'Venlafluxine' which is an anti-depressant and I know that one of the side effects is disturbing dreams, but they have intensified since having my operation and are much more frequent. The worst thing is the sensation of having to pull these long lengths of cotton/twine/balls out of my mouth!!!
Dreamer's Analysis: I think it may be due to the medication and has just been intensified by having the menopause. I have had a persistent cough and have catarrgh constantly at the back of my throat and maybe I am trying to rid myself of the catarrgh with all the mouth sensations.

kimipop69 2008-12-21 12:23:11 Yes I too have been having very strange, very lucid dreams over the past few years. I had a hysterectomy in 2000. at a very young age. They basically are of the same content. only I am awake and can mfake myself have an out of body experience, that is once my body is no longer paralized. But it always starts with me just knowing that someone is in my room watching me. But I cant move, I can't open my eyes. No matter how hard I try. Then When I finally will my arm to reach over to turn on the light, the person, usually a man is in another part of the house. I struggle to get out of my bed and walk down the hall I know he's there.but its so dark my lites are all burnt out I run to the front door and He's there and grabs at me. I run back towards my room alll the while trying to scream for help. but nothing comes out. I have gotten to the point now where I can will myself out of this lucid nitemare. but when I do wake Iam screaming and sobbing loudy. I have been astro-projecting for 10 yrs now. I don't know yet exactly how I do it but My dreams are very vivid and lucid and feel extremely real since I know I don't reach rem prior to them. because only 10 to 15 pass from the time i get in bed and the end of the nitemare.
