Is it normal to get hurt in your dream and feel it in real life

71% Normal

I used to have this dream where it felt so real. In the dream I would just be walking in this park and just randomly some guy in all black is just standing there watching me then all of a sudden he runs so fast at me so I have no time to react and he throws me at this tree and then I wake up right after. But when I wake up I have this really sharp pain in my back. I'm 100% sure I wasn't sleeping in the wrong position because I just stay the same way all night when I'm asleep. I have had this dreAm at least 5 or 6 times and a few other dreams like that just in a different place.

Is this normal?

I think it's the other way around, I think you probably got a cramp or a pain and your mind created the dream around that. It happens to me all the time, more often with sounds. If my alarm goes off, once in a while I end up creating a little dream around the sound of the alarm. Sometimes it's the TV or music, or being chilly or hot....happens all the time.

Yes because your brain controls what you dream and what you feel. You can dream about someone grabbing you and have a handprint bruise from it.

@: buckman can't. You can possibly feel pain, since pain is purely the brain's interpretation of nerve stimuli, but you're not going to have a bruise. A bruise is broken blood vessels. Your mind isn't going to make that happen.

It`s common. It`s a psychosomatic response to mental stimuli. The brain is able to create pain even when there is no trauma. A common example is `sympathy pains` like when a guy feels pain in his balls after seeing someone get kicked in the nuts.

The dream may have been so intense that your brain produced a sensation as if you were actually hurt, but if you felt the pain for longer than a few seconds after waking up, then it was probably already there and you incorporated it into your dream.
Once i dreamt i was being bit by snakes, and actually felt it, even right after i woke up. It's very possible to create imaginary pains or discomfort if you can somehow trick your mind that you're being hurt, so i dont see how that cant happen in a dream.

I find it normal, when i was 9 i had a dream of being chased, and then punched in the back. woke up in pain and a day later there was a large bruise on my back. Parents took me to the doctor, they said it was just a bruise.

The dream doesn't give you pain...the pain gives you the dream. I have a medical condition that causes dislocations and I will awake from a dream where I am being run over or crushed etc to find that something is out of place. The same thing can happen if you hear a sound while can be incorporated into your dream.
