Dreams/Nightmares that feel real and I can't wake myself up

Okay, So every now and then I will have a dream or dreams that really scare me. Pretty much its a dream I'm having and I'm myself... in my bed. In my dream I will open my eyes and see human figures but usually I can't tell who it is. If I can't its dark like a shadow. Sometimes its one, or sometimes it a few figures. These dreams/visions always happen just as I'm falling asleep (ya know when your mind starts to wonder right before you doze off, eyes are closed and everythign but you are still conscious).... that stage is when I realize that I'm about to have one of these scary dreams. so I'll either opt to stay awake or turn the lights on for a minute then try to sleep again. The most recent one I had, I was asleep in my bed with my boyfriend...in the dream I opened my eyes and I saw out of the corner of my room a strange figure of a man walking towards my bed.... I cant do anything, I cant move and I can't talk... at this point I'm scared and I know I am ony dreaming. Well I try to wake my self up I try so hard to be able to speak and call my boyfriends name... and this is all while i'm asleep... that right as I wake up I blurt out a noise( the kidna noise you would make if you were trying really hard at something but not saying anything and then all of a sudden noise comes out) It's so frustrating. And in the dream I feel paralyzed like I can't even get up and run. All I can do is lay there... and If I don't wake up before the person gets to me... I can feel the "person" on top of me... literally..I feel their breathe... I feel it all... and what gets me is I KNOW I'm dreaming... and i try to wake up but I cant. and even though I'm aware that I'm dreaming I still know that I'm feeling whoever is on my bed or whatever)
The first time I had one of these very realistic dreams was a couple years ago the night after I drank mooshine for the first time.... ha yeah. (Basically I had a really bad case of the spins alll day the next day and I felt completely out of whack) Well that night as I just went to sleep I was dreaming that I was driving a car and the wheel starting to slowly turn to the left and right as I was about to hit a car my body jerked and I woke up. I stayed awake for a min or 2 then went back to sleep... thats when it all went down hill. The next dream I had... I was in my bed (by the way all these dreams are from my point of view...1st person) and I woke up to see a frightening girl with long black stringy hair and a horrible face, on her hands and knees on top of me just looking at me and breathing heavily.... I swear to god it felt so real.... The only thing I could think to do was hide under the blanket... but right before i drew the balnket over my eyes she slowly, very slowy moved her face inwards towards me. I knew I was dreaming but I could not wake up... Well once I did wake up... well I thought I did... I looked to the left of my bed and there was a about 3 people just sitting in my room... it didnt scare me at first cuz I thought I was awake and I figured maybe it is some freiends surprsiing me... but just as I tried to get a closer look a person who was laying on the floor next to my bed sat up right in my face! It scared the livivng **** outta me. that's when I really for real woke up. Anways I couldnt go back to sleep for a few hours I was a little frightened... I felt as though I would get stuck in a dream like that... And I wanted to avoid haveing another one like that again... I did go to sleep that night however all of the lights in my room were on....
I know this is really long. But I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced the same thing or something similar. I'eve had more but I don't want to write a whole novel here but if someone can relate then please let me know!

Have you ever had a sleep study? Sometimes sleep disorders contribute to bad dreams. When I had untreated sleep apnea I had bad dreams all the time. Rarely have them any more. Dreams are so subjective, and I'm certainly no expert, but in the examples you've given, there seems to be a common thread as related to breathing. In the one -  unable to speak then make sudden noise - could represent having an apnea event then suddenly exhaling forcefully as apnea resolves. And feeling someone scary on top of you breathing in your face. Then the one with someone laying beside your bed and sitting up abruptly could be induced by a resolving apnea event too. If one's oxygen level gets too low it can cause hallucinations. A friend used to see giant spiders on the wall, and it turned out to be due to low oxygen to the brain during apnea events.

Maybe your dreams are not related to sleep apnea. Who knows? There are other sleep disorders than can cause some of the things you relate, but it's almost as if there's an overlap and sounds like bits of more than one. There are realistic dreams when one is falling asleep. There is sleep paralysis. A good sleep doc could sort thru your description and narrow it down.

Are you on any meds that could cause this? I know someone who sees figures as you describe and said she keeps a flashlight handy and once she flashes the light on the figure it disappears. Hers are medication induced. But if you can't move, you couldn't use the flashlight.

The sleep boards are full of descriptions such as yours. You are not alone. What to do about it depends on the cause.

I know this sounds silly, but if you suffer from this, do not fall asleep on your back. I have experienced this so many times, and every time I have felt as though something evil is happening, often with dreams featuring demons and the devil etc ( I am not religious, but I know a bad feeling when I get one). I also am aware that I am not awake and need to wake myself up, but I am always completely paralyzed and mute. Often I will think that I have woken up, then I wake up again for real. It terrifys me. However, if I manage to wake myself up or move, I turn on to my stomach or side and it doesn't come back. Before I discovered this I would have it up to 3 times in a row. It scares the hell out of me now, and the only time I'll sleep on my back is if my fiancee has his arms around me. Obviously if this doesn't work, get some proper help. But somehow it worked for me.

Good luck!

hi, i had a dream i was in a bed. in my dream my though process was stupid, slurred, drugged. i was loopy lightheaded and confused. there were three men in the room with me (it was some kind of hospital room) they were talking but i couldnt hear them, i slowly, very slowly, started to become more and more awake. i could feel restraints on my body, i could feel the pillow and how carelessly it was laid under my head, it hurt. eventually their words could sort of make sense, i was trying to talk but i couldnt say anything, i could feel like light blankets on top of me, i couldnt really see them except out of my peripherals. all i could see was this ceiling fan, and i could feel the air blowing on me and it was so cold i wanted another blanket. finally i heard the word 'lobotomy' i was ok with this, sort of, still fuzzy headed beyond all belief. then i realized what the word meant and then i realized that they were talking about me. i immediatly sobered up i was horrified, i kept trying to move but i couldnt. i could just feel my fingers. i knew i was dreaming and i freaked out i tried and tried again to wake myself up but i couldnt do it. i started to try and think logically so the first thing i thought to do was change the seen. i felt myself standing up but then i was just standing staring straight up at the sun in a field, wearing stupid hospital clothing, the three men were still there and now sun was shining in my eyes. i was horrified i switched back to the uncomfortable little bed. my next move was to try and switch bodies, so i switched into one of the men, he had a gun and he was big and i could see myself laying dopily in the bed, i realized i could only stay in his body for just a few seconds. i would then get switched back into my useless fuzzy brained self. i somehow managed to focus my thoughts, it felt like forever that i was stuck in this scary, too real dream. i was out of options. i remembered out of the blue that you cannot die in a dream without waking up. a sickening thought came to mind. just kill yourself. i couldnt move though, so i switched into the mans body, pulled out his gun and shot myself right in the chest. my once completely lifeless body recoiled and locked eyes with me, then sneered. i woke up. i thought i was totally crazy.

hey! i experience something similar in which my dreams feel real, it will be a normal dream like me walking down the street or something and will feel as if i am accually doing it, if i get a burn in my dream i will wake up and my hand or whereever i got burned will keep burning for 5 minutes at lest and ill have a red mark, or if i pass by a garbage i will be abel to smell it or if i get kicked i will wake up with a bruise or jsut hurts there, but one time i had a dream someone was choaking me and i almost chocked in real life untill my boyfriend and bestfriend woke me up saying i was choaking and i was turning pale. im not sure if this helps but jsut thought i would share my experiences with you :)

Kay well.
I dont know what it is either, but i've been reading things on the internet and it says its sleep paralysis.
Cause i get it alot, where im in my bed and im just laying down and im dreaming that im in my room just walking or doing my make up and then i walk to the door to get out of my room but it sends me back to my bed so i cant get out of the room. And i knew i was dreaming and i just couldnt move, couldnt scream or do anything! I got up about 10 minutes later and i started crying and freaking.
That was after i woke up to something in my face which is quite common to what you have seen with the girl with long stringy black hair and a horrible face on top of me. It felt so real but i just couldnt move or do anything..
Im not really sure what you could do about it , but maybe see a doctor or something.

I am having reoccuring dream that involves the feeling of paraylisis.  It's very terrifying and real feeling.  It does seem to come also when I'm laying on my back, but have had it laying on my stomach.  I am gasping for air, kicking and screaming.  After I wake up, I see a black flying object that looks like bug fly away.  I also feel a bad ceasure shaking feeling during my dream.  I am also screaming that I want to live and please don't take me from my family.  I've had it for 7 years now.  I hate it and wish I didn't have to sleep sometimes.  It is also when I'm falling alseep.

i've been having the same experience as you.
i will be getting ready to go to bed and right as i fall asleep still kind of awake. i sleep with a lamp on.. and i will get stuck in one of those dreams. first i feel paralyzed and i can't move or talk. and then i hear stuff in the background. it has been re occuring alot lately and the first time it happened it was the worst i didn't believe it was a dream at first but now that i have it all the time i noticed it was. the first time it happened i had falled asleep with my lights on and the door closed. with headphones and music playing in my ears and i had "woken up" to take my headphones out and i noticed my lights were off and the door was shut.. i thought maybe my mom had came upstars and closed the door and shut off my light.. so i went back to bed and i felt myself beeing lifted out of my bed and layed down on my floor and i could hear people talking but i couldnt do anything not talk or move i was screaming in my head and trying to get out of my room then i felt myself being put back on my bed and i immediatley woke up with the lighs on and the door open.. but my head phones were where i had put them. i don't know how to explain it. i got very scared and criied. and went downstars to my mom and slept down there. she didn't believe what i had to saay.. but i have been having the same night mare since that was like last year. and everytime im being sat up by something. its very scary. and i'm glad that i'm not the only one having this problem

I once had a dream that was VERY similar.

The night that I had my dream my little sister was sleeping in my bed with me because she's scared of the dark. In my dream I thought I had woken up because I heard something, but I wasn't sure what. I opened my eyes but then realized I couldn't move. I could feel my sister lying down next to me so I tried to call her name or move my arm a bit so that she could wake up and let my mom know that something was wrong with me, but when I opened my mouth to speak nothing came out.

I suddenly felt terrified, and I assumed I was so scared because something was wrong with me, but then I noticed a dark figure walking into my room from the hallway (I always keep my bedroom door open at night and I can see all the way down the hallway from my bed). Somehow I realized that the pure terror I was feeling (because it was a fear like nothing I have ever felt before, I thought I would die of the fear alone) was not because something was wrong with me, but because of this figure that was slowly coming into my room.

All I can remember of the figure was that it was a tall, pale man with bright, crystal blue eyes that seemed to glow with their brightness and that he just FELT evil...I don't know how to explain that feeling, but I sensed an evil aura. I couldn't look away from his eyes as he stepped up to the foot of my bed and then he started floating over me, his face getting nearer and nearer (meanwhile I was stuck staring at his eyes which seemed to be some sort of blue flame). As his face got closer, I snapped my eyes open and was finally awake, sobbing and terrified.

Lets just say this, I had this when I was 16 years old and I went running and sobbing to my mother and could not sleep for the rest of the night. In fact, I remained terrified of my bedroom for about a week afterward (even though I didn't let anyone know this). Even remembering this dream in order to retell it still somewhat creeps me out...

Now, one my friends (who I had never told about this nightmare) had an EXTREMELY similar one, which I found out about today. I would explain hers too, but it would be too lengthy a post. It was extremely similar to mine though.

I only had this nightmare once, but I will never forget it.

I been reading these stories and i can so relate to this. I thought i was the only one having these horrible dreams. I am some what religious and i am terrified that this is an evil demon or some kind of evil entity. I also noticed i have these dreams when i accidently fall asleep on my back face up. I usually sleep on my stomach. In my dreams i am always aware that i am awake and try to scream my moms name or someone near to shake me and wake me up. In the dream i am always getting choked ,and i can't see the face of whats choking me but i can feel it on my body and i can feel its hands and hear it breath. This thing does not sound human. On one dream i had i felt like something was choking me and some kind of evil force that i couldnt see was taking over my body , and im saying to my self if i dont wake up this thing is gonna take over me. So i start saying in the name of the Lord jesus christ help me out and when i said that i felt more pressure on my neck and whole body especially my chest felt like it was gonna burst I heard a faint ulgy scream and then woke up. On another dream i was going downstairs to get something to drink and on my way back almost close to the stairs something grabbed me from my neck behind me , and i couldnt see what it was but i could hear it breathing on me. It dragged me down to the ground by my neck and i felt like my chest was gonna burst so again i start saying in the name of the Lord let this thing let go of me and this time it let go and i woke up. I havent had one of these dreams in maybe a month almost 2 months but when i do have them i have the like a few weeks straight then they stop for a long time. I dont know what to do ,but i am terrified to have another one again and i try not to fall asleep on my back but sometimes i just fall asleep like that. Any help or any suggestions will be helpful.

I have had this well i dont know if it is a dream or real. It feels real and it happened last night. I am asleep i have someone or something tugging at my blankets. I pull them back and then whatever pulls after. It came to the point where i just kicked the blankets of because it was annoying,(Ithink i kicked them of). I tried to yell, "Dont", which sounded to me like a long slow muffled, "dont", i try to open my eyes with all my strengh and they open slightly yet i just cannot open them properly, whilst trying to pull my blankets I am sure i felt an arm. This has been happening for years but hasnt happened for about six months until last night. It is so scary as it feels real and i am sure it is. When i wake up i am just lost and dont know whether it happened or not.

Alright people, this is called sleep paralysis. I had it awhile ago. It is caused by lying on your back a lot and having bad sleep habits, life-time changes. You know stress and everything. Look it up. It will tell you most likely how to stop it.

Glad I'm not the only one. Had this for a while now it occassionally occur while lying on my back. Every time, I pinch myself and when it doesn't hurt I know I'm stuck in the dream and would forcefully try to wake myself up. It's always the image of the surrounding too. I know that my eyes have to be open cuz one time i was laying in bed and when this occur, I yell out "just come and get me already" and in the corner of my eyes was a figure of someone with really long hair covering the face. I got scared and woke up and realize that figure was the shape of my blanket. It also happen one time when I was sleeping on the couch, and got stuck in the same conscious dream of laying on the couch. I was forcing myself to wake up and call out to my late grandma that pass away for help. I heard the scream of a female voice, woke up and scared ********. Now every time it occur, once i wake up i move around cuz it only take a split second for you to doze off in it again.

Yep.  Same thing happens to me.  

Last night at 2:30.. New I was dreaming, felt someone enter the room, blurted out "what are you doing" and sat straight up.. no one there.  At that point I knew what was happening.. and that it was more than likely going to happen again if I let myself fall right back to sleep..

And it did..

The oddest thing though;  of all the times this has happened, me feeling like something was dragging me across the bed.. a dog pinning me down breathing on me.. ETC ETC ETC..

This time.. the radio flickered.. like.. it felt it.. the static sound started up and then it came through on a station for like.. 3 seconds i guess?  FREAKY!  It makes me wonder if .. maybe.. it's not sleep paralysis.. maybe.. (i'm not religious) there's something else going on?  

TO make it worse.. I'm in FL.. my boyfriend who lives with me is in TN.  He's not a light sleeper and does not sleep with his phone on.  I text him.."I had one of those dreams again.." and he called me RIGHT away.  He'd woken up at the same time.  VERY WEIRD.

Ehhh.. Just know ya'll are not crazy.  Maybe it's not medical.  I've not had sleep tests..however, take NO MEDS and am perfectly healthy as far as I know...

Hey.. i just got this realistic dream last night.Im nearly 18 and ive just started getting these for about 5-months maybe, ive researched this before but i thought id have another look and i came across yours that sounds very much similar to mine. I get them all the time aswell and it freaks me out, but now they happen so often to me i feel like im getting ust to them, but they still do scare me.
I remember the 1st one i had i was dreaming that i was in my bed...not like a normal dream..no crazy story..i wasn't imagening figures of people just me in my bed, all i could hear was peoples voices and then the thud of these "people" falling on top of me, i could'nt move or anything and i was trying to tell my self to wake up and move, but wasn't happening! I have my twin sister in the same room as me and i try and shout for her name or i try n cry to make some sort of noise for some one else to wake me up  but that never happens because i actually can't speak.
Iv'e usually been having these dreams when im sleeping on my back, but last night i was sleeping on my stomach and i still felt asif someone jamp on top of me..on my back, this was feeling more like a figure, even tho i felt it on my back i still saw a blurry figure of a person, more like a shadow, no face or nothing detailed. Since i had the 1st one with hearing the voices, my dremas are now mostly silent.
Sometimes it doesn't feel like a person, it can just feel like something heavily on me like some sort of force, it feels evil.
Sometimes in this dream i will think i have woken up and finally reached for my phone on the side but i haven't. In one dream i thought i had finally "woken up" & i thought it was my sister sittin on the bottom of my bed, but as i got closer it was a man and he turned around, looked at me and he punched me rite back down in my bed.
Another one was when i thought i had woken up i walked to put my light on and all i saw was darkness just before i reached for the light on the wall i saw this sort of "ghost" of a pale little girl wearing a white dress, black long hair just stearing at me and that really scared me! and then i think i woke up, i was thinking i could see spirits or somethin spooky! all the time i think im leaving my room to get away something always stops me, another one was i opend my door to get out and there was a man standing there with a sharp object!!argh! iv'e also felt like i woke up and someone was starin rite in my face! but nope im stil dreaming trying to wake up and shout my sisters name.She actually did wake me up just once out of alot of these dreams because she vaigly herd me whipping. i keep my landing light on now, but i stil get these dreams-so it's happend to me on my back n stomach aswell. It's HORRIBLE!

Dear Samantha,
              Your dreams are really scary and so are mine. I don't know if you believe in hypnotism but you should try it. You said you drank and were really tipsy. I don't want you to be afraid but maybe you were sexually assaulted and that's why you have those dreams about the guy who comes on top of you. I know this from experience. I use to have this horrible dream about me beening really scared. In this dream I was about 8 or 9 and I'm in a corner and this man I knew kept coming after me. I knew the man because he was my neighbor at the time. I kept having this dreams and I would wake up so scared. I kept getting flashes of this memory and so finally it turned out that I molested and raped by the guy and the reason I wouldn't remember because what happened to me was so bad that my subconscious was trying to block it out. It also turned out that by the time I figured this out the guy had died and was never sent to jail. I wonder how many kids he has done this to over the years and it's going to haunt me forever.

I've been having what would be considered Sleep Paralysis for years now..probably almost 10 years.  I'm 31 now.  But the difference is that I don't get into REM sleep when I get it...it usually occurs with me as soon as I fall asleep.  I would say within 5 minutes I'm into a really freaky dream and I know I'm asleep but for whatever reason I CAN'T wake myself up.  In he dream I try to scream and move my body as violently as I can to let my wife who is in bed with me know I can't wake myself up and sometimes she doesn't even realize what's going on because in my dream my violent thrashing around translates in "real" life and my hand or my leg just moving.  And my screams are just mumbles..not even any words.

  Last night, I was dreaming that I was at the island in our kitchen and started feeling really light headed and things were blurry, so I wnet and laid in bed and tried to relax.  Then it felt like there were hands on each of my limbs and they were pulling me from the bed.  That's when the thrashing around and screaming started.  When I get like that, my wife usually rubs my chest or taps it to try to wake me up.  The funny thing is that usually have this when I fall asleep on my back..last night I was on my side.

  A few months ago, I had a dream that I heard something in our living room...so I got up and went to turn the light on in our bathroom, which is across the hall from our room.  Flicked the switch, nothing.  I walked into the kitchen to open the fridge door for light..again, nothing.  Darkness.  Then I turned to look in the living room and standing there was a humanoid creature, wearing a hooded robe with thin taloned fingers.  All I could see was it's glowing red eyes.  I asked who it was...it held one of it's hands out towards me and I started moving towards it, my feet not moving.  I was being dragged by this creature.  I began thrashing in my dream, yelling at the creature to let go.  All it did was smile an "evil" smile, revealing long fangs.  Then once I got close enough, it grabbed my wrists, squeezing them and forcing me to my knees.  In my dream, I was so scared it felt literally like my heart was going to jump out of my chest.  When actually, it was my wife tapping my chest and rubbing it to wake me up...and all this happens not long after I fall asleep.

Is it possible that I'm falling asleep that hard that fast that I'm instantly in REM sleep..or could something else be going on?

Couple a years ago I had a really scary dream:

I was in my bad, paralyzed , couldn't move  a finger.
I know there was someone with me in the room, somehow i knew it was a demon.
(most of you knows what I'm talking about)

when i looked at my hands i also had handcuffs on them.
and then i saw him: he was looking like a normal man but i don't remember seeing any face.

I just knew he wanted to heart me

instead of only getting scared i also got angry, VERY angry.
it comes to  a point that i thought i was capable of breaking the metal handcuffs .

i was keep trying over and over getting more angry each time i tried.

suddenly i had a burst of energy and i broke the handcuffs and woke up seating(!!!) in my bed.

i felt on my back going back to my dream
(i know it sound impossible  but that what happens)

this time the demon was out of my room on his way to the living room
and i was no longer paralyzed .
i caught him in his hear and started kicking and punching him until i killed him.

when i woke up that time i was sweaty and heavy breathing.
but feeling good.

This has been happening to me as well for about 20 years.  I'm 36 now!  I have to say that it has not happened in the past 6 years, when I was living with my boyfriend and felt safe and happy.  We recently broke up and I have been going through severe depression and stress.  I was very angry when I fell asleep last night (I also took Tylenol Cold and Flu Night formula).   This happened to me for the first time in years.  Luckily, after praying to Jesus to protect me and wake me up and trying to scream for help for what seemed like FOREVER, I was able to scream outloud and my roommate heard me, ran in and woke me up.  I scared the hell out of her because she had never heard anyone yell like that before. l never sleep on my back and never have.  I swear I am awake half the time and can see the minutes change on my alarm clock next to my bed and when I wake up it is the same exact time as my "dream".  I also felt a demon in my dream as well and I swear it was biting my hand and I felt it when I woke up.  There were no marks, I'm sure it is psychological.   I think that it is related to stress in your life and your own personal "demons" and fears. I am scared to death to fall asleep tonight and let me tell you....I will not be taking nightime cold medicine ever again!   Good luck everyone.  I don't know what the answer is.  I just hope this goes away for good....for all of us.

I've felt basicly all of these effects. The shadow figures, the hearing of sound or music thats not there. To the very very vivid dreams I know arn't real, those suck sometimes, especialy when you cant wake up from them or you wake up in your bed just to find out your still dreaming! yea woke up 7 times in dreaming before I finally woke up for real. but the freakiest thing was the shadows, but i could feel them they were walkking around my be touching my feet!

hi im new here!!!
i have been spending all morning searching for answers to my question. i have not came across any thing till now... im preety shocked...
i would say about a year ago i lived in another house, my whole family thought it was haunted because alot of strange unexplainable things would happen but i had my own experiences and it would take place at night. just when i thought i was falling into deep sleep within a minute or so i would barely slowly open my eyes to a figure standing at the end of my feet on top of my bed i would suddenly feel a huge amount of weight fall right on top of me having the feeling to struggle breathing, i would close and open my eyes i felt my self trying to reach out to my husband i would speak and call out his name but my voice would not come out and i would feel a huge gelatine over me!!!
it happened plenty of times to me it actually got to a point were i would try to say my husbands name but what was coming out from my voice was saying 'im going to kill you'' at the end my husband would somehow wake up to me and stop it.butwhat is extremely scary is that it feels real.

i am just going to believe that what was going on was this paralysis sleep thing

I know exactly what your experiencing, it used to happen tome nearly every night but it stopped for a while but last night it happened again. I dreamt i woke up and i saw someone right infront of my bed and i instantly knew it was one of those dreams so i closed my eyes and tried to wake up. but i just felt so numb and felt like i had pins and needles all over my body. and while that was happening I heard a voice that seemed so real like i was hearing it in my room while i was sleeping (if you know what i mean) anyway i finally woke up trying to scream. then I fell back asleep and the exact same thing happen but this time i felt a hand on my cheek. if felt so realy i tried screaming for my mum in the next room but nothing came out. when this happens to me i try to convince myself its just a dream but it seems way more than that. like someone trying to take over your body. i hate the feeling.
