This happened to me last night, or rather early this morning.
I went to bed at around 2:30am, after doing some house chores. At around 5:30am, I awoke because I felt something crawling quickly over my torso. I
awoke instantly & it felt like it was on my face. I frantically tried to brush it off with both hands, mostly my left hand(I was sleeping on my left
hand & it was sort of numb, but it had enough feeling).
I was brushing it off for atleast 15-20secs, but I still felt it running around on my face.
Then I realised that nothing was there, but I was still feeling it. It was as if I awoke twice.
Weird stuff has happened to me before, interms of feeling & otherwise, that I thought weren't real, so I thought that this wasn't either. I looked
in the mirror, after about 20secs or so & saw nothing on my face & the crawling stopped. I felt a little disoriented & quite frightened for a while,
checked my bedroom for the "rat like creature"(Cuz that's how it felt...like a rat or bat, or even hamster). I found nothing & apprehensively went
back to sleep.
Now, a lil background on myself, I have suffered with seizures before(I'm not sure if I'm epileptic, still waiting for the results) & the sort of
panic, disorientation & fear I felt after that "invisible rat" incident was quite similar to the feeling that I would feel after a seizure, just not
Has something like this ever happened to anyone?
I'd like to get some input on this.
I know I was dreaming before it happened, but I can't remeber what I was dreaming about, so I'm thinking; what if in the dream I had something was
crawling on me & it was so intense, it felt a little too real. Although, this has never happened to me before & I don't think that's the case. Also,
when you awake directly from a dream, you remeber what it is you were dreaming about.
