I've had similiar experiences, posted elsewhere on another thread, but I'll describe to you the things I have woken up with...
I've had the scratches across my chest and back, usually running horizontal across my trunk. Sometimes there will be deep scratches across my legs as well; I can see why some would think that scratches are done by the self while sleeping... after all, that's what my first reaction was (with the exception of the ones on the back, I thought I had slept on something).
I've also had bruising. Very particularly shaped bruises...
I have had a foot shaped bruise on my inner left thigh. Maybe it was the result of a blood clot or a charlie horse, and I may have smacked it loose in my sleep, who knows? But the one bruise I am most proud of, and one that I cannot think of any possible means of doing to myself is this:
I had a hand shaped bruise on the back of my right upper arm; thumb and finger shaped marks were clearly visible. The only problem? It appeared as if it was right handed: the thumb was towards my chest, the fingers wrapped around the other side of my arm.
As a side note, I have also woken up covered in thin layers of dust... don't know what that's supposed to mean...
For me, I usually chalked it up to astral combat experiences, as I have been known to do such things, but for you, I cannot say.

I think you are being a bit of an alarmist here. The guy asked for help, not to be scared to death.
