The strangest thing happen to me this morning, i had woken up with blood all over my face from a bloody nose that had happend sometime at night. That in itself i wouldn't find strange, but that night i had also watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacer And had had dreams about the guy from the movie running after me, and myself in the dream tripping and breaking my nose.

im not sure if this is really paranormal, but it seems pretty strange to me.

Often times, external cues from your surrounds ( while subliminal) when you are asleep can find their way into dreams. Let's say you listen to the radio while you sleep and your fav. song comes on, you might dream of being at that concert, or driving down a road and hearing the song, etc. Perhaps when you got the bloody nose, whether it just happened randomly, or wheter you hit it on something, it just triggered something in your dream and that's when you fell. Regardless though, that's pretty crazy!

Well, I don't want to alarm you too much. Nose bleeds are a side effect from alien abduction from what I have heard. When they modify your memory, it can cause a nosebleed. So maybe you were chased by aliens and they conveniently used your recent short-term memories of the movie to cover it up.

Just what I heard,

I went through a period of having severe nose bleeds in my sleep for about a month. Freaked the hell out of me, it sounds stupid, but I seriously, vaguely, remember being in the presence of something un-human while "sleeping." My mum used to tell me the nose bleeds happened because of a high-blood pressure or something, I didn't believe it though...

All children have nose bleeds when they are young it is normal and there is nothing strange about it. You are more restless when you sleep and your body temp is higher so occasionally you will have a nose bleed.

I had nosebleeds until I got pregnant(at age 30) I would just be sitting there and it was like someone turned on a faucet. I had them in my sleep as a small child, but mostly in the day. Not sure what made them stop, but they did.

supraliminal, if it happens again, go see a doc.

you may have just whacked yourself in the nose, but most people while dreaming have a paralysis to prevent us from doing just that every night.

forget the alien stuff, this could be signs of a real disorder
ROCHESTER, Minn. -- A Mayo Clinic study shows that melatonin successfully alleviates many patients’ symptoms of REM-sleep behavior disorder (RBD), a violent sleep condition that manifests during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, a stage of deep sleep in which most dreaming occurs.

"Melatonin can be considered as one possible option for RBD," says Brad Boeve, M.D., Mayo Clinic neurologist and sleep specialist, and the study’s principal investigator.

People who experience RBD appear to act out their dreams, in which screaming, yelling, hitting, kicking and jumping out of bed tend to occur. These behaviors can cause injury to these people or their bed partners.

"Normally in REM sleep, almost every muscle in your body is paralyzed and you don’t move," explains Dr. Boeve. "Therefore, when you have a dream, there’s no excessive activity and no potential for injury. In this disorder, for reasons we don’t fully understand yet, that normal paralysis is lost, and people will appear to act out their dreams. Sometimes, they’re pleasant dreams. Usually, they’re nightmarish, violent dreams with the person being chased or attacked by something or someone. So, they try to defend themselves or fight against it, leading to punching and kicking. They can injure themselves by jumping out of bed, striking the bedposts or diving out of bed. As for their bed partners — they often get injured."

I also get them pretty frequently, both during the day and at night. Just had one a few hours ago actually.

I've never heard of the nosebleeds = abductions theory before. Anyone know any more about that?

Hi -

My brother suffered from nosebleeds through most of his childhood and early adulthood. He was also a sleepwalker. We had to double lock the front and back doors and put a child gate on the stairs, as he would often wander outside in his sleep. Thank God we never had a fire!

One day after a particularly bad nosebleed, he called me over to tell me about a dream he had where he ran through a dusty field. In his hand he clutched a handful of dirt, although how he got outside and back in again still remains a mystery (he was 14).

It could be that his (hyper) activity in his sleep caused his blood pressure to shoot up, causing him to bleed; said the doctors. They also told my mother that we had to watch him carefully as sometimes he bled so much he would start coughing and sound like he was choking to death. He had to learn to sleep on his stomach. Twice we had to take him to the emergency room to have his nose cauterized and his stomach pumped because he swallowed so much blood. The hospital came to know him as 'the bleeder'.

Diagnosis? Doctors baffled. The only advice they could give my parents was that he would eventually outgrow the nosebleeds. This is why they didn't 'fix' him in case you are wondering. Also, they couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. He was perfectly healthy.

As an adult it has to an extent stopped, but whenever anything is too extreme – he seems to be highly susceptible to everything around him, weather, stress, physical endurance, noise - he still gets them. Sometime he wakes up in the morning and there is blood on his pillow, particularly if bad dreams are involved. Maybe there is some correlation between nightmares and nosebleeds?

I would also agree that you get checked up - just to be on the safe side.
