Waking up screaming... what causes that?

Finding out what causes this has been interesting!

I have been accused of snoring from time to time, I don't know if I do or not, I'm asleep when I'm doing it! After waking up this morning though, I did some research about nightmares and waking up screaming. I found out (and I did NOT know this) that it is impossible to snore and dream at the same time!

I really think my husband would have preferred my snoring this morning to dreaming, because he was downstairs, peacefully having his morning coffee, when I suddenly woke up SCREAMING! I was having a nightmare, and in the nightmare I was screaming, but I did NOT realize that I was actually doing it out loud!

He came running upstairs and asked "What's wrong? You're scaring the crap out of the CATS, they both have puffy tails!" Sorry kitties, Mom had a bad dream/ nightmare! But I have to admit, puffy tails DO look funny on cats!

This only happens to me a couple times a year, AND, only since I passed age 50. I wondered if it has something to do with age... menopause that I've been going through perhaps? Or as Archie Bunker once said to Edith when she was going through "the change"... "When I had a hernia, I didn't make YOU wear the truss, Now if you're gonna have a change of life, you gotta do it right now. I'm gonna give you 30 seconds!"

I found out some interesting things about nightmares, and experiences that others have shared about waking up screaming. I found out that the difference between night terrors and nightmares is this... night terrors will happen early in the night, in the earlier stages of sleep and if you awaken from them, you will probably have no memory of what it was that was giving you the night terror. Now nightmares, on the other hand, will happen early in the morning, usually between 4 and 6 am, which is when mine always happen, and when you wake up you'll usually remember parts of the "dream," or the entire dream, that was terrifying you!

Now my dream this morning, while it did make me wake up screaming, actually had a humorous "bent" to it! I was dreaming that a man was trying to steal my car, he had the hood open for some reason... the car was parked in a covered lot, and I came upon him and startled him. He started to run away and got into a car and was about to drive away when he looked right at me, and I gave him "the finger". I never do this "in real life"... even if I am provoked, I might THINK about doing it, but I would never do it. Why I did it in this dream, I don't know! BUT, it angered him and he came after me and was about to grab me when I started screaming "leave me alone!". Then I woke up to my husband telling me that the cats had puffy tails.

I have had dreams in the past that were not even a little bit humorous, and it seems like I had them when I had been watching too much television news programming. I had a dream (nightmare) when President Obama was first elected that the country was in a war. Not only a civil war, but other countries were coming into the country and attacking us on our shores. Our home was locked up, boarded up, secured as well as we could secure it... but somehow they still got IN. They took my husband and put him on a train.. and all I could think of was that it was like the holocaust... then they tried to take ME next, and I woke up screaming that time, and I was trying to run after the train! Absolutely nothing humorous that time, very scary, I woke up sweating as well as screaming. And, I stopped watching so much television news. I limited myself to an hour a day in the evening.

I have these nightmares it seems a couple times a year, and from the looks of it, other people sometimes have the same problem. That's one of the good things about the Internet, you can find out that you are not alone when something like this happens to you, chances are it has happened to someone else as well.

I found out that there are five stages of sleep, the first stage happens within the first one to seven minutes, when you are drowsy and about to fall asleep and can be easily wakened. The second stage is when it is harder to wake someone, and we spend about 1/2 of our time asleep in this stage. Then come stages three and four when we are in our deepest sleep, our body temperature drops, and our heart and respiratory rates slow down.The final stage is REM sleep, "Rapid Eye Movement" and that is when we dream. If you happen to be a sleepwalker, you will do that during the third and fourth stages of slumber, but the dreaming and nightmares are left for the final stage, REM sleep.

Some believe that dreaming is our minds way of sorting out which memories we have that we should keep and which we should delete. Others have said that it is our minds way of trying to make us face up to things that we need to face up to, or to find a solution to a problem that we may or may not even be aware of.

I also found out that if you are suffering from night terrors (early in the night "dreaming" and sleepwalking and/or screaming) it can be caused by a chemical reaction in your brain that causes the brain to "misfire".. in that case, medical treatment may be necessary. In the case of nightmares, there are things you can try.

First of all, don't eat right before going to bed, the food can't digest properly and can interrupt sleep. Sleep in a room that has a good temperature for sleeping, not too hot or too cold. This is fine advice unless you are going through "the change". You try to go to sleep and you are hot.. you fall asleep with no covers on... during the night you become cold, you pull the covers up, then you're hot again... you kick them off... then you're cold again... then your husband wakes up and says "will you make up your MIND.. either you're hot or you're cold"! You laugh and then fall back asleep! (Ok, so that might not be the experience of every woman who has gone through "the change"... but I think there are some out there who can relate!) I think I hear a few husband's laughing as well!

I did read about one lady who had been trying to lose weight and often went to bed hungry, and she was told that she could have been suffering from non-diabetic hypoglycemia. I hadn't even thought of that possibly being related, but then I have recently lost 12 pounds simply by eating less and exercising more (the weight has come off within about a three month period, so pretty slowly). I wondered after I read that, since I did feel hungry before I fell asleep last night, if that could have caused my nightmare. I wasn't going to dare eat anything right before bed, though, so I ignored the hungry feeling, and fell asleep.

One thing that was suggested is something called "lucid dreaming." It happens you realize while you are still partially asleep that you are simply dreaming, and then you try to "control" what you are dreaming. I'm not sure if I can even do this, but it might be worth a try! At least maybe I can learn to keep my "finger" to myself. Ahem...

There have been dream interpreters around as early as 3,000 B.C. from what researchers could tell. Dreams back then were recorded on stone tablets, and dream interpreters were brought along on Roman battlefields. Later it was thought that bad dreams were brought on my indigestion, anxiety, or a traumatic experience..

There are some very common themes in bad dreams, such as falling or flying, being naked, not being prepared to take an exam, and even body parts missing (especially TEETH). Now I have actually HAD that dream, where my teeth began to fall out, Not a good feeling let me tell you! Not pretty, either! Another common theme is chasing or being chased.

I think tonight I'll look at some cute pictures of kittens right before retiring, have a very light snack to keep away that hungry feeling, and try to make the room temperature as comfortable as possible! We'll see what happens!

Sweet dreams!

Very interesting hub. I am at the hot flashes stage. I'm sure my husband can relate to the covers on and then covers off, back and forth all night stage. I've been going through this for the last year. Smile! Welcome to Hubpages, by the way.

I was laughing so hard at so many parts of your story. I just had a dream a week ago where I woke up and was actually screaming but then I laughed at myself and went back to sleep. I don't remember what the dream was about but it was pretty weird. I too am going through "the change" and I have a feeling this could have contributed to the early morning antics. I really love the pictures you put on this hub too. Great, funny and interesting hub. I hit every button.

Thanks, Minnetonka twin! I am so GLAD I'm not the only one who has done this! :) And I DO believe "the change" has a lot to do with it, amazing what hormones can do to you!! I'm so glad you liked it, thank you for reading and for your great comment! :)

My nightmares have always been pretty unbelievable. That's why I'm an insomniac. I nightmare right after I fall asleep, so maybe I need to tell the doc. I usually just tell them, "I have nightmares." No one has ever asked when.

millyangel 4 years ago

last night at 11:45 pm i woke to find myself screaming for my life, my partner was standing there with a horrid look on his face... it freaked us both out and it made me cry right after i knew i was screaming. i have no idea why i screamed and can't remember any dreams/night terrors or nightmares.. i don't want a repeat of this, so do you know how i can fix it before it becomes a habit???


KathyH profile image

KathyH 4 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

Hi Millyangel! I'm not sure what can be done to prevent it, but I know that the things I tried here have helped me. I make sure the room is a good temperature, have a light snack so I'm not starving before bed (in case it is hypoglycemia causing it), and I try to do something relaxing before bed, like reading a good book (nothing scary), or just reading for entertainment purposes on the internet. I've been trying not to watch so many television news programs before bed, and I don't read news right before bed either, things happening today in this world can be scary. I haven't had one of these episodes now in about 6 months. I'm hoping it doesn't happen again either, so I know how you feel! Hope it gets better for you! :)

You're welcome, Ashley! The strange thing is, when it happened to me I didn't even KNOW I had been screaming until my husband told me I was "freaking out the cats". It hasn't happened since the time I wrote this, so I'm very glad about that! Thanks so much for reading and commenting! :)


Kristi 4 years ago

It was just this morning at six a.m. when I woke up from a nightmare in which I was being attacked by sirens. Last night I went to the movies to watch ice age 4, and sirens were there that lured sailors to eat them. While I was having the nightmare, a voice that sounded like a little boy yelled, "Mom...MOM!" I woke up because it sounded so real like it was under my pillow. I woke up and woke up my sister and turned on the light. My sister said she didn't hear anything, and I looked under my bed and around me and no one was there.

The freakiest thing is that I'm 13 years old, and I don't have any children (duh) and why couldn't the voice yell my real name? I never had a nightmare in a long time...and I'll never forget what happened.


KathyH profile image

KathyH 4 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

Wow, that's really interesting, Kristi! I hope you don't have any more nightmares like that! I know that when I would watch too much TV, especially the news, that would make it worse, so I don't watch TV before bed any more. I bet a movie can have the same effect though. Thanks so much for reading and for your comment. Hope you have better dreams ahead! :)

Hi Kathy! I don't think I have ever awaken screaming, however, I can definitely remember dreaming about screaming and as if I couldn't scream loud enough. Very strange. I have also had very personal dreams and a lot of the time dream in vivid color. :) Great hub and very well written. Thumbs up and shared all over! Lisa

KathyH 4 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

Thanks so much, Lisa! I've had dreams too about screaming and no one being able to hear me... those are actually pretty scary! I haven't awakened screaming in a while now (which I'm grateful for , and I'm sure our cats are too!) Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment and for the shares! :)

I have recurring nightmares(the same one's now I had when I was a teenager). My worst ones are being on a beach with a giant wave coming and nowhere to go to get away from it, and the ones where I am screaming but no sound comes out AT ALL! Those terrify me. I have never had cause in real life to need to scream like that...so every time I have that dream I wake up wondering if I ever need to scream, will I be able to?


KathyH profile image

KathyH 4 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

I have had that same thought, theathomemom, I have wondered if I needed to scream would I be able to do it loud enough to be heard. Many times my worst dreams are of being chased or followed and being in extreme danger and terrified. Another really terrifying nightmare is trying to run and being unable to run when I needed to. I would sometimes wake up and wonder why my legs didn't work the way I needed them to in the dream/nightmare. Thanks so much for reading and commenting! :)

Very interesting hub. I've been a squealer (closed mouth screamer) all of my life, off and on. Trying to scream, but I can't. The squeal usually wakes me up. Does this say something about repression of some kind somewhere in there? :-) Anyway, good reading. Try not to scare your hubbie too often. That's got to be scary.

KathyH 4 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

Thanks Cyndi10 for visiting and for your great comment! :) I'm working on not scaring him too much, although it is the cats I worry about more! They seem to be easily frightened! :) I haven't had this happen for a while now, so I'm hoping it doesn't happen again! :)

Wow, thank you conservative lady! That REALLY was a scary nightmare. You had a good reason for waking up screaming! My scariest dreams or nightmares were always when someone I loved was about to be harmed, too. Must be a common theme. Glad this was helpful! :) Thank you for your comment!

There are so many different types of sleep disorders . We may never know which disorder we may have, but I know I definitely catch myself snoring in my sleep and I wake myself. Every now and then I have a night mare . What does it really mean?Are we stressed, reliving a bad experience at work or school ? Our brains work in different ways to process information, learned or experienced .A nightmare may be a way of our brains trying to concur the fear of something.We may be afraid of or afraid to experience.


KathyH profile image

KathyH 4 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

I've done that too, candie33! I've been awakened by my own snoring and I usually know right away that it was the snoring that woke me up. The nightmares are fewer now, but I still have them from time to time. Good thoughts about how we are processing things like life experiences. You are definitely on to something! Thanks for reading and for your thoughtful comment! :)

I have nightmares periodically, but I don't think I have ever yelled in my sleep!

I've had the common dream of losing teeth, and a couple of times I woke up thinking it really happened! That would be awful.

Interesting story. I enjoy the topic of dreams, and the process. When I remember them, they are intriguing even if they are scary.

This is interesting. I am actually writing a research paper on dreams right now for my capstone in Psychology class! My paper addresses the concept of dreams being useful to psychologists in that they reflect our unconscious conflicts and desires!

I have very strange dreams, I used to wake up screaming from nightmares but now I just talk and make very strange comments in my sleep such as "No, those are not real spaghetti noodles so don't put them in the hole." I have no idea what I was dreaming about that night!


KathyH profile image

KathyH 3 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

Interesting hub! I have a tip back for you, I once heard Dr. Bernell Baldwing, who is a neurologist, on TV saying that people should not eat before they go to bed. He had a funny way of saying it too, he said that the the stomach would shout up at the brain: "Don't turn off the lights, we're working on pizza down here!" And that the brain would answer angrily: "I don't care, I'm going to bed!" Then the stomach would shout back: "You'll be sooooory!" Maybe waking up screaming is part of a stomach vendetta, and I'm not joking.


KathyH profile image

KathyH 3 years ago from Las Vegas, Nevada Author

That sure sounds like it's possible, craftybegonia (love your name by the way!). I think it might be better not to eat anything at all too close to bedtime. As we get older, sometimes heartburn can become an issue, and that definitely is made worse by eating too close to bedtime! Thanks for commenting! :)

I had a several good laughs while reading this hub! Especially with "the cats had puffy tails". You must have had quite a scream for the cats having puffy tails!

I've heard of people having nightmares about exams or being naked.... fortunately I don't have those. A recuring nightmare for me is having spiders above my head on the ceiling. After a while of having that nightmare my husband wakes up only slightly to say...no, that OK, there is nothing on the ceiling and he falls back to sleep :-)

Thanks for sharing and making me laugh!

There are two main types of scary phenomenons in sleep(nightmare and sleep paralysis) that are caused by two main scary symptoms of cardiovascular disease {palpitation and fainting (syncope)}. Persons who palpitation is easy to occur are easy to have nightmare, drugs can cause nightmare because drugs can cause palpitation. Females are easier to have nightmare than males, because palpitation is easier occur to females than to males. Women have a huge amount of nightmares during pregnancy because women experience more palpitations in pregnancy. Physical factors that contribute to bad dreams include fever as also sleep because fever causes an increase in the heart rate, When palpitations occurs, people will have two most common feelings: one is tachycardia cause a feeling of seeming to be chasing ; the other is bradycardia or premature beat cause the feeling of heart suspension or heart sinking. Therefore, people in sleep accordingly will have the two most common nightmares : one is dream of being chased (occasionally hunting other people) ; the other is dream of flying in the air or dream of falling down. If transient cerebral ischemia or fainting occuring during the day may result in some very terrible dizziness, palpitations, feelings of chest pressure, dim vision, tinnitus and a variety of neurological symptoms. As a result, all the people who are prone to cerebral ischemia or fainting frail corporeity, excessive fear, taking the quinidine which may lead to low blood pressure, as well as a excessive high pillow ors, error in sleeping style which may lead to the aggrieved neck, pressed blood stream. when they sleep in deep night, they will have the extraordinary corresponding horrible dreams, in the dreams, they do some kind of terrible Belial pressuring them or being hunted down, but they can not cry out or escape, which are called nightmare in iatrology. Vague terrors in light sleep, which is known as sleep paralysis. Sometimes people was just woken up with the cerebral ischemia or fainting, be cause the vision continuing for a few minutes and dyskinesia have not yet concluded, which will cause psychological illusion that people struggle to wake up but fail to do it. For instance, a place in country, there is a “haunted” bed which makes people have nightmares every night and it is this fact that the pillow in the bed is too high. Another example, sleeping pills are the treatment of nightmare of being chased of neurasthenia, due to the nightmare of being chased of such patients is caused by tachycardia, and sleeping pills can lead to slower heartbeat, moreover slower heartbeat sometimes leads to sleep paralysis or fainting for people of low blood pressure. Therefore, treating a nightmare with sleeping pills at times is not only invalid, but also it will instead increase the patient’s state of the disease.
