The answer is simple. Aliens snuck into your room last night and scratched your back with really long nails. They also did so in a way so that you would remain asleep and not notice anything. The purpose of doing this was to confuse you and nothing more.

Were they actual scratches that broke the skin and drew blood?

Because if they were just scratch like marks then you slept a bit funny.

Most people scratch themselves in their sleep, I think. Whenever I scratch myself, long pinkish lines usually show up on my skin for 15-20 minutes. You could have been groggily itching yourself as you just woke up and not realized it. And it doesn't matter if there are 5 scratches beside each other or 30, every time you pull up and down your hand moves over a bit and creates a new row of scratches.

you should take pictures, then maybe we can understand what happened better.

i have no camera...but it scares me quite alot.not knowing or not be able to find out...i can only assume it was some kind of entity with sharp things attacking me. or my subconcious punishing myself for stuff that i know im supposed to do. sone side is like a swipe short and curls the other side it 6 almost parallel not with some erratic starting r finishing point.

I remember seeing a program once, about a man that was being scratched by some poltergeist entity. It would leave long thin scratches on many parts of his body such as his arms and stomach. I am not saying this is what is happening in your case but it is one possibility.

Another possibility is that you may have been scratched some time BEFORE you went to bed but didn't notice it until the next morning, and so you assumed that the scratches occurred while you were sleeping when they actually could've happened at any time before you went to bed.

Ive also had this happen to me. and ive woken up a few times with 3 little bite type holes on my chest in the formation of a triangle. im interested if youve also felt weaker since this happened to you

This happens to my Fiancee every 3 months or so. We had to change rooms in the house once, it was so bad.

If you believe in ghosts and stuff, well, what more can I say.

I mean, we looked into it, made sure she wasn't wearing any of her jewelery and such. We made the bed properly so that it didn't have exposed edges, and yet she still woke up with really long deep scratches on her back and shoulders.

Plus, it doesn't help that my families' home is haunted.

Seriously.. . .. . .

It sounds like just about every possibility has been covered here. I have had what looks like bite marks from insects after waking up in the morning but don't recall any scratches. What ever it is I hope it will not happen again.

Perhaps you were visited by a succubus - a female demon that has sex with men while they sleep (masculine counterpart of the succubus is the incubus)?

I think I've been visited by succubi on two occasions in my life...

A succubus,
hmm all thos lonely nights Ive spent dreaming of some one to hold close and never any succubus. woe is me

Ward8: do you know ANYone with a camera who could take photos of the marks?

If so, save them somehow and then write down the date and as much as you can remember in a book that you KNOW you will not 'lose' -- maybe you could pin the written details inside your phone directory or some other book (a dictionary for example) that is too large to get lost and which you know you won't be accidentally throwing away. Attach the photos, or tape a 'sleeve' on the inside of the hard cover of the book and put the photos in there.

Then, ask your mother to check your back each morning. You can check the rest of your body yourself.

There could be a perfectly reasonable explanation. Often, we scratch ourselves automatically, while watching tv or computer screen for instance. We're so preoccupied that we don't realise we're scratching.

We're capable of some pretty weird things while we're asleep. In bed, with your body warm and relaxed, it may be possible I suppose to reach areas of your body that would be too difficult to reach during waking hours when the body is more tense.

You don't remember anything untoward happening that particular night. You'd remember it, I'm pretty sure, if you were 'visited' by a version of The Hag.

It may be a one-off: just one of those weird things. But if it happens again, you can add it to your notes from the first instance and if you have photos to add to your notes, you'll at least have evidence.

You say it might be a version of your conscience, causing the scratches?

I guess you already know that it's possible for thoughts to manifest physically? Phantom pregnancy, for example, and stigmata.

Dermatologists claim that 90% of skin problems are 'psychosomatic' ( although I'm not sure I agree with that).

It's worth remembering that people who're hypnotised and told they've been cut or burned will (in some instances at least) develop red marks or blisters. These are temporary, but the fact it occurs demonstrates the relationship between thought/belief and physical manifestion of those thoughts/beliefs.

I read a fascinating article once about a group of people who were badly burned in a fire in a building. One of these was a fireman. One of the doctors on duty realised that the fireman's burns were far more severe than the man realised and would worsen within hours, because burns keep on burning down through the skin. The doctor hypnotised the fireman and told him that his burns were minimal and would heal overnight. The fireman was told he would be 'swelling, pain and blister free' when he awoke. Next day, the fireman's injuries were hugely reduced from what they would have been had the doctor not applied hypnosis. The article was complete with photos of the fireman taken shortly after the fire and also on following days. The fireman looked almost normal -- his burning and swelling were hard to detect and he had very little pain. Since reading the article, I've always been disappointed that firemen and burn-units aren't taught hypnotic techniques to be used as soon as possible on burns victims.

Anyway, the above illustrates the very close link between mind and matter.

Before terrifying yourself with imaginings about aliens and other creatures of the night, it might be a good idea if you reconciled your emotional and/or guilt issues, via meditation or a visit to a priest or psychologist -- or simply by accepting that none of us is perfect and we often fall short of our ideals. That's part of being human. If you accept yourself and determine to lift your personal standards, you could regard that as a clean-page in your life. Put your guilts behind you. You could write them down and then make a little ceremony of burning them. Maybe this is all it would take to put your fears of night-time visitors and 'punishment' behind you.

Hope things work out well for you.

Funny, I read the first few statements and thought to myself, before I get to the end of this page the phrase 'No camera' will come into play. Was I proven wrong.... Nope.

Ooooh scratches, here come the greys with their Lizard slaves specialised in scratching... perhaps president bush snuck in, changed into his true lizard form - threw cheeseburgers at you with enough velocity to scratch and hey presto - mystery solved.

Judging by your responses you obviously don't want to hear a possible rational explanation and are leaning towards the supernatural, but I will take a shot anyways.

Do you sleep with any kind of a down/ feather-bed top on your bed? I know that sounds like an extremely stupid question. I have one and if I don't shake it out every week or so the sharp end of the feathers will start to poke through it and my sheet, causing extremely visible scratches you will not notice until you wake up.

I only mention this because shortly after purchasing one I thought it was something preternatural as well, and not something as simple as the bed itself.
