Sleep paralysis. It's common. Look it up OP.

Here is a post of mine from last October!!
"It is oddly comforting and spooky at the same time to read all the similar accounts. Here's mine. I was sleeping like normal, I wake up to see a gigantic, we are talking 5 or 6 ft black spider above me, using the post of my bed to stand. I screamed and hid under the covers and then looked back up, woke up my husband and tried to come to grips with the feeling that I wasn't really asleep. The detail in which I remember the spider seems too real to be a dream, but who knows. It was not facing toward me, and it didn't move. It was gigantic, seriously the stuff of nightmares. I also had this feeling that it wasn't going to hurt me, (which was also weird) but I hate spiders so I was scared of it anyways."

Melatonin does not cause strange dreams. It's naturally produced by the body.

I've found that my dreams can be influenced by dust or pollen or spores that are floating in the air. Your subconscious could be sensing the pheromones or keratin from spider silk made at this time of the year. Dust in the environment is formed from all of these things.
Eating honey roasted peanuts once made me dream of being a bee.

Just a thought about your dream. You say you felt transformed into a spider & then you were wearing the same clothes. Spiders weave webs, build, etc. Is there something you are working on or building in your life? Even emotionally or spiritually? Maybe the spider does represent you & what you are working on/focusing on right now or maybe what you should be doing.

Lately, I've been seeing strange vision or ghost of what appears to be a giant spider in my room.
Sometimes, this creature appears to be a giant ant or wasp but most of the time, it's a giant spider 6 ft across!
I can only see it shortly after waking up and slowly disappears. Even stranger thing is I never saw its head. Only the abdomen and legs.
Having strange dreams too, seemingly connected to these visions. In the dream, I am roaming the streets as a woman, half naked, barefoot, and wearing a thin, almost see-through white clothing that appears to be made of spider-silk...And there's one man in the street that I am trying to seduce.
And then one more night, just before I slept, and for a short moment when I closed my eyes, I felt transformed into a giant spider. I could feel having 8 limbs and a large abdomen.
It was quite unsettling feeling, it felt so real. And I felt really worried, it might be happening and I could get caught in such monstrous appearance (or illusion).
I don't exactly know what this means but I've once heard people who had visions of hell also saw giant spiders in there.
It doesn't appear to be harming me though. It was never associated with nightmares nor sleep paralysis in my case. It's supposed to be quite frightening but suprisingly, isn't. The giant spider in fact, appears to be wearing clothing, and curiously, it's the same clothes I'm wearing!
