TDodrn: I do this all the time with migraines - I will dream all night that I am being shot in the head, beaten with steel pipes in the head, etc. and then will wake up with the absolute worst migraine ever - by that point, they are so bad that it takes an ER visit to help. I HATE IT! Your pain is real but you feel as if you are only
dreaming. Really weird! Glad to know I am not the only one (not really, I am sorry that you have the pain- didn't mean it like that - just glad to know someone else understands - my family looks at me like I am crazy when I tell them this)!
Hope you have a great day!
