For the past few months, I frequently have a recurring dream that my foot is cramping.  It seems so real--the red hot pain of cramping.  I never completely wake up afterwards.  However, I don't believe it's actually cramping at all, since I never have pain in my foot later.  Maybe I'm just worried it WILL cramp?  Any way I can stop this from happening?  It happens a few times a week, once at night.

Wow Luvzminis, are you sure it isnt real. If it is real I would suggest taking some magnesium for the cramping. That is what has helped me. However if it is just a dream I dont think there is meds out there that can help that. Im sorry Im not much of a help am I. I hope you figure this out soon.

Hi Luvs,

i have "pain" type dreams too. sometimes the pain is real, sometimes it's not.

what *else* happens in the dream? how are feeling (in the dream) and how do you feel when you wake?

i believe dreams are messages from us, to us (so-to-speak). you know, subconscious things brought forward to the conscious mind (even though you're sleeping, you wake with awareness of the dream).

maybe it's a message (or confirmation) of how illness affects and/or limits your life? (can't get far with a hurt foot) without any other part of the dream, it's hard to analyze this one.

also, some dreams seem impossible to interpret (and maybe they *are*!).

anyway, if you can, try to remember what *else* is happening in the dream, how you're feeling as it happens and how you feel when you wake. recurrent (sp?) dreams often have great meaning to me.

good luck! lemme know if i can help with further details.

happy friday to ya,

That's another odd thing.  There is no real "setting."  I only seem to focus on the foot actually cramping and the pain.  It's only the feeling/pain and I'm never "anywhere else." I have no idea what else is around me or going on.  The pain seems to last 'forever,' of course, but I quickly get 'out' of the dream once it's over, and never really wake up right afterward.
It would make sense--I agree with you--that maybe this is about how the illness affects and limits my life.  As I'm sure you would agree, it's not easy living with all this 'stuff'!
