Why Am I Shocked While Sleeping?
Good evening. R nI want to ask about the experience I had. R n My name is Rifka. I am 18 years old, when I was 14 years old I could not walk and even couldn’t get out of bed, not because I was paralyzed, but I feel the pain point on the back leg above the right thigh. The pain radiates from the front knee and then the side thighs to the back of the pelvis. The pain appeared even though I moved slowly. I am a general practitioner, I was given pain medication, it worked but after the dose was finished, the pain came again. In the end I went to the hospital for an X-ray but my bones were fine, so I consulted a bone and neurologist. I was given painkillers only. R nDoctors and people around me could not confirm what illness I had. Some even say I’m just a play 😭. R nOne night, I slept on the sofa in a sitting position, I didn’t dare to sleep in my usual position because it was difficult and painful when I tried to get up. When I fell asleep I suddenly dreamed / imagined something small suddenly got bigger, really big (it’s hard to explain, in my opinion, it’s not a dream because there’s no definite picture). I was shocked and woke up, I immediately stood up and screamed running while limping, I completely forgot the pain. I realized but like delirious, I said there was hair on the roof then I asked my father to go to Japan. I don’t even know what I’m saying myself. R nOther people think it’s mystical and they call a witch doctor, but I don’t believe in anything like that. R nI have experienced this 3 times. But the second and third are not as bad as the first, I can control my body. But still feeling fear. R n r nI am really curious about my disease. For 4 years I tried to ask questions and tell other people, but no one knew. Even calling me just bragging. I ask for your help, thank you 😊
Good evening Rifka, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Beforehand, we need to say that we believe your story, that you do experience what you say, because we also don't see any benefit for you in lying. As for why people around you call you bragging, acting and so on, it happens because they can't explain and logic what happened to you, so it's easier to accuse you of such accusations.
Then it is necessary to know that there are three components of health. The first is physical, the second is mental, and the third is social skills. Among these three components, often people only focus on the physical component, even among doctors. What includes the physical component is what can be seen, touched, touched, and clearly shaped. X-rays, blood tests, CT scans, MRI and ultrasound are examples of investigations to find out the physical aspects of a disease.
In your case, by having you checked into a general practitioner, a neurologist, and an orthopedist, which of course you have also gone through various examinations and are declared normal in all aspects, your steps are actually correct. Still inaccurate is that if the physical aspect is confirmed to be normal, the next step is to examine the mental and social aspects, in which this examination is carried out by a psychiatrist. People often ignore this possibility because they think that psychiatrists only treat 'crazy people', which is very incorrect. Psychiatrists deal with people who want to quit smoking, people who are addicted to playing video games, children who are hyperactive, children with disabilities, people who have an excessive fear of speaking in public, and people who have sleep disorders.
Therefore our advice, if you are truly curious about your condition, the next medical step you should take is to see a psychiatrist for further tests and evaluation whether it happened due to the influence of a traumatic event in the past. brain chemical imbalance or so on. The treatment that you will receive later can be in the form of behavioral therapy, hypnotherapy, and oral medication. So, hopefully it answers your question.
