Something new happened;
Last night I had a strange encouter. I was laying in my bed. I was still awake at 12.55am.
And Suddenly I felt this hand touching my head. It felt like it had long fingers/fingernails. It felt otherwordly, it's really hard to describe, it just didn't seem real. After it touched me. I could still feel his presence in my room. So I started praying to God asking him to let the being disappear. I also imagined a white bright light around me and after a few minutes it disappeared. I was so scared, my hands were shaking really badly. Does anyone think those marks on my back + this could be related? Or does anyone know what the being was? please help me out. Call me paranoid, I couldn't care less :/

Yes i would say these are stretch marks. i had alot of growth spurts when i was young and they did look like this. i got stretch marks all over my legs, arms, back and stomach. the red purple shade will fade ane they will become silvery and light over time. i would suggest you moisturies your body with a vitamin e cream or an oil as this may help prevent you having more appear.

I'm going to make an appointment with a doctor, to see if these are really stretch marks.
I'll let you know when I've visited the doctor.

Yes, I'm afraid it's terminal.
And maybe you need a new mattress?

I'm glad to hear that it was confirmed as stretch marks.

My initial thought that if it wasn't that it could be what is often called "road rash". My boyfriend has similar markings on his legs and back from a motorcycle accident when he was younger.

The reason that they appear redder than "normal" stretch marks may be that in that particular area of the body the blood vessels are closer to the surface and the layer of fatty tissue that covers the muscles is thinner. When my boyfriend works out, or has done an exerting task, the marks he has turn a reddish/purplish color. If you have been "working out" lately it is entirely possible that you got these. Stretch marks are caused by tears in the lower part of the dermis. This is usually caused by sudden, or quick growth (which is why they are common with pregnancy), and can easily be caused by "working out" because you are stretching (and actually tearing) the muscle and dermal tissue. The repeated tearing and healing of muscles is what causes them to "grow" and become stronger, much as a broken area of a bone is stronger than it was before the break.

I didn't see if any one had asked you if you started a new exercise program recently, or if you had begun lifting weights. If you are overexerting yourself, by lifting too much from the get-go you could easily develop stretch marks (which is why they say to start with a lower weight), because you are suddenly tearing the muscles and in turn stretching the dermis as well. Doing it slowly causes smaller (and usually nearly unnoticed) tearing that the body can acclimate to and heal more quickly.

Hopefully this might give some insight as to how you may have developed these stretch marks now that they are confirmed as such.
