I do that sometimes. I'll be chewing something I wake up still doing the that until I'm fully awake. Then I startle awake abruptly. When I am fully awake, I feel embarrassed .Does anyone have problems with acting out what's happening during dreams? Sometimes I will dream someone is fighting me and actually kick (mostly), but occasionally punch. Once I dreamed I was being chased and fell onto the floor. Is this "normal" with ptsd?
Freida, many years ago, when I was having hearing issues, I'd have just fallen asleep and think someone was calling me for help. I'd leap out of bed sweaty and panicking ready to answer the call, just to realize no one was calling me. I did that for a couple of years.Yep. Hubby says just last night I was fighting in my sleep and kept smacking him.
I used to jump out of bed in a total panic but when I woke up would have no idea why
