Welcome to the club friend.
When I first started programming I was around 13 years old, I started programming in a high-level programming language known as .DM or BYOND, I moved onto Visual Basic, C+, and PERL as my brain expanded.
I have had many instances where I'd stay up all night trying to figure something out, go to sleep, have a dream of a computer screen and the answer right there, wake up and have the solution.
I don't know what this is called, but it's really cool and enjoy it while you have it!
Like when you are in a car and you are not even thinking about the exact problem you were thinking about yesterday in your physics class and then poof, you suddenly understand it. And you are like WTF!! I totally get it, without any logical explanation behind your understanding.

Well last night I had a dream in which I knew the answer to the math problem with out having to work it out. I just new the answer with out having to think about it.. It was a real math problem with a correct answer. Upon awakening I worked the problem out. Of course I had to do it a few times to make sure I was not mistaken but the answer was correct.
