In dreams, everything requires your attention to exist. THis goes for pain as well. You only feel pain if you focus on your injuries. Knowing this
and practicing it in your lucids can carry over even in your non lucids so that you never have to worry about pain.
The way I discovered that was in a shared dream with another dreamer who was very skilled at causing pain. If fact, those dreams were eerily similar
to yours. Because we just go along with whatever the dream throws at us in non lucids, if you're going to enter somebody's dream to torment them,
it's a good idea to assume the role of an authority figure like the police. We are trained to automatically submit to people like that.
THis guy who tormented my dreams I call the thumb master, because he used his thumbs to work my pressure points as well. But he didn't go straight
for the pressure points, he ran his thumbs along my body, directing my attention to what he was doing and letting me know he could hurt me at any
moment. Because he skillfully directed my attention to his torture like that, he was able to create pain for me.
My dreams sound very much like yours, only when the guy would first show up he would fire off a bunch of random questions like he was interrogating
me. I assume that was his way to establish his role of authority, which in retrospect was quite ingenious.
In your case it was probably just a regular dream since the way you described it unfolding, that would be a logical outcome. But if the guy was
skillfully directing your attention while he worked over your pressure points, you may very well have encountered a skilled dream walker.
