Ken tells me this morning that I yelled his name in my sleep last night. Okay, first thought was thank goodness it was his name I yelled. devil I do not remember dreaming and I don't think I've ever talked in my sleep that I know of or at least not where I have woke him up doing it. But whatever I was dreaming must have been bad for me to yell loud enough to wake him up since he has a lot of hearing loss. He said when I woke him up yelling I was sound asleep. This has been bugging me all day.
 
I did have a hard time going to sleep last night even with my normal amitriptyline and xanax. I think I had GD being out on her own on my mind. I know it was after one when I went to sleep which is late for me.
 
I have not changed any meds.
 
I guess one fear is this a new symptom that is going to start happening on a regular basis. I have heard of people doing strange things on Ambien but I have taken the amitriptyline and xanax to sleep for many years.
 
Thanks!!!!
 
luv and hugs

Hi Marlee,

I did that before, but I do remember what I was dreaming. I kept trying to call John's name but nothing would come out. Well, eventually it did. And him and the dog both came running. It was kind of scarey. But at least I felt safe afterwards. I hope that you don't continue to have disturbed sleep. Your granddaughter will be okay. Try not to worry, if something happened, you would probably be the first to know. So have faith and put it in God's hands.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Hi Marlee,

I would bet it's because you were up late and maybe things have been on your mind. Doubt it will keep happening...I'm taking the side of "don't look for trouble"...lol If it does start a pattern then mention it to your doc.

I will share that for the first 3-4 years after Bill and I were married I would wake up screaming about 5 nights/week. Nightmares about my ex. It's rare now but about 2 months ago I woke up yelling something..I have no idea what but I felt I was in danger.

Relax and back to your normal bedtime routine tonight, young lady! <tapping foot, hands on hips> lol

Hi Marlee,

How weird, I had a nightmare last night & it was bad enough that I couldn't go back to sleep. It was one of those where everything seems so real and the bad man in my dream did seem real. I haven't had a nightmare in probably 15 or more years. I didn't go to bed until 1:30 or so and woke up at 3:30 with the nightmare. My hubby gets up at 4:00 for work, so I just stayed up because I was too scared to go back to sleep. lol

Maybe with you going to bed late & all the things on your mind? Did you eat anything late? They say sometimes that will also make you dream. It is probably a one time thing and you should quit worrying so much because all of this stress is not helping you! Take care!

Hugs!!  Margie

Marlee....about ten years ago I woke myself up yelling 'Hail To The Chief'!  I was sitting at the end of the bed with my legs hanging over and it scared the living crap outta me...pardon my French.  Hail to the chief??  I didn't even vote for Clinton.  Hubby heard me and just started laughing....when I sat up he just thought I was getting up to go to the bathroom.  It hasn't happened again as far as I know so don't even think about it. ( if it does happen again make sure you scream 'break my ribs...break my ribs!)

 Oh!  So that's what that racket was last night!!  cool   

That can be disconcerting.  Have you asked your doctor?

I've had yelling and other weird things for years.  The other night I lept out of bed, tore the curtains down and tried to hide under the comfortor at the foot of the bed.  eyes   Why?  Because I dreamt my husband was shooting at the ceiling and the sprinkler fixters (which we don't have) were falling all around me.  

Hubby asked, "What are you doing??!!"  And I told  him, "getting away."  "Getting away from what??"  At that point I woke up and was embarassed and slunk off to the bathroom.    blush

Funny.

Marlee, I have become a loud talker in my sleep over the past couple of years. Recently- I guess in the past 6 months or so- I have begun to yell quite a bit. I wake my husband with yells that he says sound like they are coming from somewhere deep. I usually wake up in mid-yell and I am really barking, and as I wake up I remember why I was yelling, and that in my dream, I couldn't scream so in my sleep I just shouted as hard as I could. I don't know what it is from, I have always been a dreamer during sleep, but this stuff is new.

It could be hereditary. As a child I used to sleep walk. I remember a housekeeper finding me tottering at the top of the stairs, and she gently redirected me back to bed. Another time I woke up in bed with one of the other sibliings, across the hall from my room. When I first awoke, I though we might have had late night house guests and my Dad might have carried me across the hall to my sibs room to free up my bed for guests. When I asked him in the morning, he said "no, we didn't have guests last night."Now I hear people calling out my name in my sleep, I'll get up and open my bedroom door and call out, "What do you want". No answer. Then I go check on whoever is here and they are sound asleep with white noise machines running. We have very different sleep/wake cycles in this house. I'm in my PJ's at 7 PM, my son stays up till 12, or 1, or 2AM. I wake up between 5 and 6, and my son gets up at 11 or 12, PM. So everybody gets along great cause we only see each other in the afternoons. The hereditary thing, my Biological Mother, yells, has complete conversations, and walks in her sleep, usually out to kitchen for food or drink. I've seen her bake a cake and wash dishes in a semi-conscious state. I don't know what she's up to these days, we don't speak. Unfortunately, there is a lot of conflict through-out our family, for generations.

Marlee,

That can be scary.  I hope you relax today and get a good night's sleep, tonight and everynight.

I'm a BIG TIME sleep talker.  I talk about everything.  I'm always worried that I might say something that will upset the hubby.  LOL, one night I was calling the dog.. I don't remember the dreams too often so I don't know why I was calling him. 

I'd rather be a sleep talker than have my sister's sleep problem.. she's a sleep walker-sleep eater.  One night she woke up making a Windex sandwich.  When she lived with my ex and I we had to put a doggy shock collar on her ankle so she wouldn't keep falling down the stairs.  She kept hurting herself in her sleep.  She's on heavy duty doses of klonapin (sp?).  Its been helping but she still occassionally takes a little walk, eats a stick of butter or something weird. 

Take care and sleep tight,

Hey there. I think we Fibromites might have sleep talking, walking, eating, yelling issues because we're not getting the deeper levels of sleep. I have heard horror stories about Ambien, I'll take the Elavil and valium, thanks anyway. Lately I've been sleeping great, but too much. Probably 10 hours a night with a 1-2 hour nap in the afternoon. I am not concerned yet b/c I'm going through a particularly stressful period in my life. Actually, my life has been very stressful for a very long time.

I have a huge phobia of snakes and last night I was dreaming about something and there was a snake and I woke up screeching, thank god I didn't wake up hubby, he gets up early for work. I think it might have something to do with what I watched on tv yesterday. Usually it is hubby waking me up. He talks in his sleep like almost every night.

Thanks for sharing your night time stories everyone it makes me feel better that other people do and say things in their sleep. l didn't wake Ken up last night yelling anything and got more sleep so I guess all is well. I would still like to know what I was dreaming that I would be yelling his name that loud.

Awww Marlee,
 
I have been plaqued with nightmares quite often for the past 5 yrs.  I hope they dont continue for you hon.  Perhaps it's just everything catching up with you...you know, the health scare with Ken, and the worry over your GD and her big event coming in April, worrying over your health, etc.   Did you eat something funky before you went to bed?  That can do it too.  So they tell me rolleyes    Probably an old wives tale..lol
 
I hope you get a better sleep tonite, and that this bad dream of yours is just a "one of those rare night" occurrence.
 
 
Gentle hugs,
Diane

Marlee-

I would not worry about it at all. You've got alot on your mind. I don't have nightmares too often and I just had one last week. I could have hollered out too, but no one would be here to hear me except 17 yr old son, and he sleeps like a rock.

I have been having nightmares this past month or so. Some are so bad I have to get up at uncivilized times during the night like 2,3,4 AM and walk around the house untill the terror leaves me. It seems to be unresolved trauma from years gone by. Usually someone I knew whom I was/am at an impasse with, I dream of us battling it out. It is so darn real I'm thrashing around and kicking in my sleep. Maybe that helps explain why I feel like I was run over by a bulldozer when I get up. I was thinking, I have a voice activated tape recorder. I am going to set it by my bed, see what shows up

Tyno,

That could be very interesting, let us know what happens with the tape recorder. I guess that I snore, I don't know, I never hear it.LOL...

Somebody mentioned strange things on ambien. My husband will take one and sit up and watch tv before he goes to bed. He always falls asleep in the chair then starts talking in his sleep. It is so funny. I get a kick out of it. At first he scared me, I thought he was hallucinating or something. He sounds so serious but is talking about some weird stuff. LOL

Have a great day everybody

Hugs, Karen

Talk about strange doings with the voice activated tape recorder. Back in 1987, I was residence director at the YWCA, a place for transient, and homeless women. One of the ladies worked off her rent by cleaning rooms after women left. She came to me repeatedly asking why Rm. #10 was messed up, bed slept in and so forth, b/c there were no women registered in that room. Some of the girls were nervous, thinking someone was accessing that room at night. So I planted the voice/noise activated, tape recorder, under one of the beds. Next day I retrieved the tape recorder. We heard the fire escape being lowered, then more hushed voices, then heard whispering and then bed springs.

As it turned out the night clerk, was having a boyfriend or two come over to keep her company midshift till 8AM. Funny, but  interesting, I'm sure. We exorcized the Ghost from Rm.# 10

Marlee,
I think it has to be stress related. I used to talk in my sleep pretty regular. But, when I was going through a nasty custody battle with my ex, I was actually hitting my new husband in my sleep. And as he said I was fighting hard. I would sometimes wake myself up after hitting him. But, it has not happened in about 5 years, so I always scratched it up to being under a lot of stress.

But, weird vivid dreams have seemed to start when I started taking Cymbalta. I never remember my dreams, and now I have a lot of them.

I woke him up again about 3:00 this morning calling his name. This is really bugging me cause I rarely remember dreaming and sure don't remember anything that would have me calling his name in my sleep. This time he said it was more like I was upset with him or something. I wonder if he is snoring and unconsciously I'm trying to get him to stop. Normally, when he is snoring before I go to sleep I rub him on the back or arm and ask him to turn over, it's kinda a signal we have between us.
 
I don't know why with all the other things I have to worry about this is bugging me so bad. I guess it makes me feel out of control some how and I'm a control freak.
 
I'm going to tell him not to tell me if I do it again.
 
luv and hugs

Marlee-

Try not to let this upset you too much- You both have gone throught alot and I am sure you have been very worried about his health and even losing him. Under much stress I think alot of us do things we normally would not do. I agree, don't have him tell you if you call out his name in your sleep. You have got enough going on you don't need to worry about this.

At least for me, it seems as if I have those kinds of dreams, where I yell out in my sleep, or thrash around, when I have unresolved issues. I keep a lot of stuff in, things that my DH does that I feel just isn't worth fighting about or even discussing, but I think it builds and gets to me and comes out that way. Marlee, you were scared and frustrated with your DH, with him not going to the doc, also not feeling well...that is all pretty scarey...believe me, I know...been there...done that...don't be too concerned. I think it's just our minds' way of blowing off the stress...
be well

I second and third everyone else who says it is most likely due to stress. I don't talk or do anything else in my sleep on a regular basis, but I do occasionally, and I think everyone does. A lot of people just don't know about it when they do because they either don't have anyone sleeping next to them, or they aren't loud enough to wake them up. When I do it, it's usually during times of stress or when I'm particularly concerned about someone/something. I've been having Mom issues lately and have been dreaming about her and woken myself up crying. DBF says I moan or call out as well. Anybody ever have those dreams where you are trying to scream or yell but nothing is coming out, until you really do scream in your sleep and wake yourself up scared half to death? I do that too. DBF even talks in his sleep once in a while, for no particular reason. I would say not to worry about it. It might be due to the health scares you've gone through with Ken lately. Perhaps you are just dreaming of losing him and you're calling out to find him or something! It would make sense.

I too have been having terrible nightmares. I haven't had bad dreams like this since I was a child. On several nights in the past month I have woke up my husband because I was yelling or screaming in my sleep. I don't know if it's the meds. I am on or what. I do know that every time I feel like I am going into another flare the nightmares intensify.  Sometimes they are so bad I have to get up and turn on lights to take away the fear. I wonder if something we are all taking is causing this, or if it is stress induced from the fibro pain.
