Wake Up Screaming (Screaming Dream)
At least once a week I wake up screaming so hard it scares the heck out of my husband. I scream so hard my throat hurts. I wake up thinking someone or something is in the room. That is all I remember. Last week I had this happen and my heart was pounding so hard I couldn't get back to sleep for an hour. Sometimes I don't even remember I did it until my husband reminds me. It is really becoming a problem. Any suggestions???????

I have a similar problem. My wacko explanation is that there is a "being" from another dimension trying to possess us and our sub-conscious understands that the only way to prevent this is by screaming ourselves awake. The "something in the room" is the unsuccessful entity. Does this happen around 3am? That's when mine does. My father occasionally has the same experience, but he never wants to discuss it.

This is exactly what just NOW happen'd to me! And YES it happen'd around 3:00AM !! I woke up Screaming so loud! i could not stop! i Finally got the strength to get up still screaming! while i knocked off a lamp in my desk like if their was something their i was trying to push off! Finally my brothers rushed in my room and i stop'ed and could now remember why i was screaming like it felt like as soon as my brother came in my room i had forgotten everything! My heart was pumping so hard i could hardly breath! i started crying so much because i was so scared something was in my room! I have previously felt something in my room like holding me down to to the point i cant move or say anything.. Not until now i woke up screaming feeling something was their! I am so scared! it is now almost 5AM and i refuse to go back to sleep.. I hope this does not continue to happen..

I'm having this same problem. It started a few weeks ago when I woke up in the middle of the night and I had this intense feeling that something was staring me right in the face and my immediate reaction was to yell as loud as I could, "WHO ARE YOU? WHO ARE YOU? WHO ARE YOU???"

The weird thing is, after I said it the third time, I felt like a TV switch shutting off in my head. Like how the TV will click off and visually, I could see it as well as hear it click off. Kind of like there was a connection to me and then a disconnect.

I felt embarrassed because I live in an apartment house and I know the neighbors heard me yelling.

The same thing happened again today except it wasn't as intense and I didn't utter words when I yelled, I just woke up yelling "AHHHH" and then looked around the room to see if something was there.

They say spirits feed off of us, whether we're positive or negative. Maybe it was connected to me, feeding off of my energies which would explain the disconnecting visual and audio after yelling.

i had a dream once that i was being stabbed in the stomach by "the spirt of revenge" and when i woke up i had three scars where i was stabbed in my dream, the only reason i woke up was because i was screaming, really it was more like i was trying to scream because i was out of breath and my throat was completely dry like i had been struggling for air. This has happend more than once along with a few, well, alot of other weird/scary things.
