I can so relate to the nightmares and also very realistic dreams, where I can feel things (including pain). 2 nights ago I had a dream my kids where being attacked by a bear and I couldnt save them. And last night I had a dream I was being stabbed and I could feel it, it's very scary. And to top things off I woke up this morning vomiting, and I guess I clenched my teeth so hard while I was sleeping that now my teeth and jaws hurt. I'm having a terrible morning today.
