      Squeezed at the waist or chest to the point of terrible pain

      For a number of years I have been having nightmares about being squeezed at the waist ( I can't remember if I have ever been squeezed around the chest before) which is vividly painful. The dreams vary in the mode that I am being squeezed. These days, I do not like to be held tightly at the waist it makes me very uncomfortable because of the dreams. I awoke this morning after dreaming, I felt a rush in my chest like I was ready to take on the world then after 5 minutes I started to cry.

      In the dream my husband and I are play wrestling on the floor then suddenly he decided it would be funny to disable me by squeezing my chest, very quickly it became painful and I pleaded with him to stop. It felt like it happened over a long period of time. I finally looked him right in the eyes so he could see I was not kidding, but he just laughed and continued to squeeze, I even cursed "it hurts so f...ing bad!" and tears came from my eyes but he showed no remorse, I finally and thankfully woke up soon thereafter.

      I really need to figure out how to make these dreams stop. I am the kind of person who tends to hold back what she really feels or wants to do in order to maintain peace. Feel free to ask questions to clarily what I have written.

      ok, i have had dreams similar to this where i actally felt physical pain as well as the feeling that i could not breath. For some reason my dreams would always be different but they always ended with some heavy wieght -be it person or object- on top of me to where i felt a pressure (painful) that made it difficult or impossible for me to breath.

      when i researched it i found out they were "night terrors" you could possibly have this too but feeling like you can't breath is a key part of it.

      in my case it had to do with some lost memories of a not so good part of my life. the more research you do the more you will begin to find out why YOU are experiencing them. In the meantime just tell yourself "it is just a dream, I can choose to leave my dream body" or try asking the person in the dream why they are hurtiing you like this - what are they trying to tell you?

      I know it's stressful at the time but try to remain calm and remember that YOU are in control of your dreams

      I think you just interpreted your dream better than we could, you are holding in your emtions & wants. I guess the play wrestling is the little disagreements and quarrels your husband and you have, but not serious fights. He's oppressive and you are recessive.
      I'm guessing the squeezing at the waist is the pressure to be thin, but it could be more symbolic like the need for emotional nourishment. It also depends on what's doing the squeezing. Hope I helped.

      Is your husband possibly flopping a part of his body on you when you are sleeping? Are you being crushed by his dead weight? Do you ever have these dreams when you sleep alone? Do you remember what postion the two of you are in when you wake up? Do you ever feel this way when you are awake?

      If your health checks out ok and your husband isn't accidently crushing you, could it be sleep apnea--which is a really frightening thing.

      Or maybe a symbol for something sexual or reproductive as below the waist is where the reproductive organs are. Something to do with that?

      Of course, s tightening of the chest can precede a heart attack.

      It sounds so utterly physical that I would first look into the possibility of a physical problem.

      Have you read anything about sleep paralysis? The phenonenom that many here refer to as "the old hag?" (I wish they wouldn't use that term. They could just as easily call it "the stalker.") You might want to check out the threads that mention that.
