A description of the experience
I'm not sure what I suffer from.
Sometimes it can take me days to sleep, and when I finally am so tired that I'm falling asleep, I get intense pains like electricity is being pumped through my body, or that I have been thrown in water and cannot breath, these cause me to shoot out of bed and hit out trying to grab something that I cannot see. I've already dislocated my shoulder because of the sheer terror of these experiences.
It's the pain I feel that wakes me up, and happens at least 20 times a night as I try to sleep.
Sometimes when I've been interrupted in my sleep by the pain, I have a tendency to hallucinate as I'm waking. These range from huge transparent spiders (they don't actually really resemble spiders, more like strange starfish) that move across my wall, to black mist or odd small pale blue people (they look like wrinkled old men) stood in my room at the foot of the bed or at its side, they wear hoods. It's a really weird hallucination.
When I do dream, it's very vivid, I'm able to remember everything. I generally dream about war and death. Sleeping for me is torture.
I also find it very difficult to sleep at night, and find myself only able to find sleep between 6-9 a.m.
It's only during sleep or between sleeping and waking I experience these things.
If anyone has the same experience or got effective help please let me know.
