Sleeping and bizzare dreams



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I got sleeved on June 7, 2018, and the past few days I have been having these really weird and very real dreams. They're preventing me from getting a full night sleep. Has anyone experienced anything like this after surgery? Could it be the combination of medications and Vitamins?

I dreamed the other night that I was married to a werewolf. Then I woke up to my hubby's energetic snores and it all made sense! LOL!

But, really, if you are still on any pain meds, that could be it.

I stopped the pain meds after a couple days of being home, they were giving me such bad constipation. That is pretty funny though. Last night, I followed Alec Baldwin and his family around and I was trying to give him my number on a business card but everytime I went to write my phone number, I would write it wrong. I eventually got in their SUV and drove home with them with a coffee pot on my lap as a present for them and still couldn't get my number right... Lol

I actually have dreams of stuffing my face with food! Which is funny cause I have no desire to do that while awake.

Man I have always had crazy, weird, vivid dreams. I don’t know what my brain will concoct if they get worse after surgery. Although recently I had a dream that I was in a hotel with Rob Thomas so I would be all right with that one getting wilder. :D

He sure do sing pretty and not a bad build either. Very neat tushie on him, as I lose weight I do appreciate these things more. I may be a silver puma but I ain't blind!

I found out what was causing them. It was the zantac at night, I've never had any problems with heartburn or reflux, but they give it to you as a precaution. I decided not to take it, and no dreams. Took it the following night, and oh boy! Lol Asked the Dr. if it was okay not to take it, and she okayed it.

I just read up on Vitamin B12. Studies show they cause vivid dreams/nightmares. It recommended to take the Vitamin early in day, maybe that would help.

As of right now, I’m enjoying my vivid dreams lol

This is good to know as I have to start taking B12 this week. B12 for Breakfast it is!

My dreams have been VERY weird and vivid too. I was stuck in a LARP game loop or something last night. .. and it was pretty violent/gory, weird. Eventually I basically woke my self up so I could 'switch channels'
I've also had the stuffing my face dreams a few times.
Weird stuff.
I'm not back on my Vitamins yet, but when I get there, the B's are definitely happening in the AM!

I have much fewer nightmares when I wear my C pap, maybe the vivid ones were because I was smothering.
