heart grinding/ dreaming while awake

Question Posted Tuesday February 21 2006, 12:00 am

Ok, well i basically have two questions.
The first is about my heart. Sometimes when im standing and i twist my body back and fourth, i hear my heart grinding.. anybody know what thats about?

And secondly, sometimes i dream while i'm awake. No, not day dreaming. It's like an actual dream that i'm not controlling playing it my mind. Sometimes it's like watching a movie. Does anyone know what that's about?

As long as your heart doesn't do it constantly, and as long as it doesn't hurt as it happens, it's probably nothing to worry about, though I'd mention it the next time you go for a check-up.
As for the second thing, it's called lucid dreaming.
Wikipedia or Google it for more info. I get it all the time and can't control my dream, although most people can. It could be related to either insomnia or sleep apnea. It's harmless and irritating, although sleep apnea is not. I recommend mentioning this to a doctor relatively soon.

ok yeah I have no clue about the heart Im sorry!!

however with the dreams I do the exact same thing sometimes- I was telling one of my friends and she just stared at me like I was crazy lol... but all I can tell you is that you most certainly aren't the only one and if you's like to further discuss things or talk things out you can email me at I hope this helps in some way!! TAKE CARE!!

Unfortunately I can't answer about the heart because I really can't think of anything that might cause such a sensation. However, I would recommend that if you have noticed any difficulties breathing or similar symptoms, you ought to speak to your doctor about it, just to be on the safe side.

As far as the dreaming while you're awake, it's nothing to worry about. It is a little odd but I prefer to put it down to a fertile imagination. I do exactly the same thing (oddly enough it used to be normally in my maths lessons....can't think why!). These 'movie' type scenarios are actually what is properly known as daydreaming. The difference between this and what a lot of people tend to think of as daydreams is that what you see is very vivid and real, like when you dream at night time but you're wide awake. You don't see anything around you or hear anything around you because you are dreaming.

If it is happening on a very regular basis (more than two times a day is what I would tend to think of as relatively normal) then you may want to speak to someone to make sure there's no medical problem that causes this distraction. Otherwise, you're just a normal healthy person with a normal healthy imagination!

hnumber one: is most likely air being forced out of your lungs (happens when you twist side to side) or just creaky rib cage, don't worry too much.

number two: congratulations you have an active imagination lol. This kind of thing happens usually when you're really relaxed in the bath or something (like a state of meditation) or really bored/tired (like in a lesson). It's just a random brain processing thing and unless it's affecting your life significantly or you can't control your actions while you dream again don't worry.

I'm not sure about the first one, but I think you really should tell your guardian though. The second one sounds like sleep paralysis, usually you can't move when you are dreaming while awake. This is usually the explanation for alien abductions too, lol.
You should really consider seeing a doctor for both of these conditions. I'm not exactly sure if they are curable, but I think sleep paralysis is treatable.
