Low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, is another culprit. When your body’s blood sugar level is low, which happens when you haven’t eaten in a long while before bedtime, your brain gives you a little spurt of adrenaline that causes your body to drop some stored glucose into the bloodstream. If you’ve ever had a dream that wasn’t just vivid but also felt especially frantic, you know the feeling of adrenalized dreaming.
Spicy foods in particular are notorious for inspiring particularly vivid dreams.
Some in the medical community have theorized that the heat from the spices elevates body temperature enough to interfere with the quality of sleep. The discomfort then works its way into your subconscious, and is reflected in the narrative it creates. Real-life stomach aches and other types of gastric distress can end up as dream pain experienced by your dream self.
Hardly ever. I can count the number of dreams I've had this year on two fingers
but I get a vibe that one side (blue) is good, and the other (red) is evil
whole process cycles through
my head starts to get crushed. (and thats the point I woke up)

I can count the number of dreams I've had this year on two fingers. This one was the second, and its bizarre. So much so that I wrote it down when it woke me.
I'm locked in a room with two glass sides. On one side of the room there is a bright blue neon light, on the other side of it I there is a bright red one.
There are people in shadow on both sides of the glass and they are talking to each other in some indecipherable manner.
I can't see what they are doing, but I get a vibe that one side (blue) is good, and the other (red) is evil
And then the walls start to close in on me very very slowly. The glass is so thick I can't speak to either side even though I'm begging for help. The walls just keep on coming towards me slowly and then, just as there is barely enough space for me to stand, the floor opens up and I fall down a chute and drop into the same room again, only the walls are back out and the whole process cycles through although the walls get a little closer in every time until eventually my head starts to get crushed. (and thats the point I woke up)
What can I make of that?

Hmm. Reading the responses I guess this ties into a couple of things going on at the moment, one personal and direct to me and one I'm observing from a distance.
I am so not used to dreaming that I hadn't made the connection, but now I can see it.
I guess the question is, what do I do to resolve the issues. From what you guys have said there doesn't appear to be much of an answer here though, just a reflection of the causes.
ETA adding this because somehow I missed Tarzan's post above (browser issues) - so you reckon I need to decided one way or the other huh? Interesting. I wonder what would happen if I choose the red side? Hmm
