I had a strange thing happen last night. I was in a deep sleep when I thought I heard a male with a deep loud voice say Jo wake up. It scared the heck out of me as it was not a voice i recognized. The dogs and my husband continued to sleep so I realized it must have been my imagination. How common is this and what causes it. This is not the first time this has happened.

Hi Worn. I think it is a vivid dream. I have vivid dreams all of the time!!! I just started on the neuro patch 2 mg and it seems that my vivid dreams are not as bad since beginning the patch. I have good vivid dreams and bad vivid dreams LOL I used to wake my husband up all of the time by screaming, laughing, yelling. I scream really loud with these dreams. My husband woke me up one night and he wanted to know who I was kissing because he said I was going to town. I remembered my dream and I wasn't kissing, I was eating a delicious dessert. LOL I told him that, but I don't think he believed me. Like I said though, since starting on the patch they seem to be not so vivid - I don't know if the patch has anything to do with it or its just a coincidence.

Evening njladyluck
To be honest with you if I had been by myself I would have hit the panic alarm on the security system. It was as if some one was in the room waking me up. I think I understand people who say someone told them to do it. It is like some one is there but you can not see them.
