Anyone Else Not Dream At All?

I'm an undiagnosed celiac (pretty dang sure!) and before I stopped eating gluten I never dreamed. I mean, I had like 10 dreams over a 4 year period. Everyone says "you were dreaming, you just don't remember" but I don't buy that. Now, even if I don't remember the dream once I wake up, I at least have a feeling that there was a dream; some residual emotion or an inkling that "something happened last night."

Just curious; anyone else have this?

I never dream either. And everyone tells me I am but I don't remember. I used to dream as a kid, but it disappeared in my late teens. Maybe in the past 8 years I've had 5 dreams, if that.

I used to have very vivid dreams. Then they disappeared. I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. Not sure if this is the cause or not. Some people say it is. Now I am dreaming again.

I dream most of the night, both before and after (self)diagnosis. Some are more memorable than others, but they are always long and harrowing but not violent. Even when I am in violent situations, I feel safe and almost untouchable, more like an observer than a participant.

Often I incorporate real-time things in my dreams, and I used to have prophetic dreams until I suppressed them. They were too scary; I was afraid I would dream something reallly bad that would come true. I also have recurring dreams that seem to resolve once they are explained in my life.

I do believe that everyone dreams; some of us are more aware of them than others for some unexplainable (to me) reason. I would hate to let go ofl my dreams; even though exhausting they are fun and therapeutic and help to resolve issues that one can't deal with in a rational way. The subconscious is a wonderful thing :huh:

I never dream either. Probably 5 in 10 years ? I have some sleep apnoea dx ..so maybe that is a link... The gluten-free diet did not change things for me.

I never had any dreams until I went gluten free. I think it probably has to do with what type of sleep I was having.

Yes, not dreaming is a symptom of sleep apnea, and sleep apnea is not induced by celiac disease. Often times, sleep apnea has a heriditary factor in that family members have the same bone structures, meaning the jaw bones may be the same, causing difficulty in breathing while asleep.

I was diagnosed with sleep apnea last summer, and have been on CPAP ever since. I wasn't dreaming either. I haven't noticed a huge difference with CPAP, but I do dream now, very vivid dreams sometimes.

The reason you do not dreams is because you are not getting to the stage when dreams appear.

Read up on sleep apnea, you may then realize you have other symptoms, symptoms you never realized. After being diagnosed, I remembered things I had said over the years, symptoms I had. After going gluten free 9 years ago, I posted in a forum that many of my symptoms had gone away, except I still wasn't sleeping properly. Until being diagnosed, I had forgotten all about that post, and was thinking I didn't sleep simply because it was part of me. Now, I realize it's another disease, along with my insomnia, neuropathy, arthritis, raynauds, and celiac.

I would always dream a ton, almost remember the whole story of one dream a night. When my symptoms were kicking in hard core my sleep was so restless and I hardly dreamed, I know I did somewhat, but I think that was also a part of my fatigue my lack of long lasting REM. Since I've gone gluten free my sleep is restful and really deep again with involving dreams wit ha mix of everything, my interests and fears and hopes. Though I know I had quite a few dreams where I was glutened!

I too dream in full color! ;-)

When I get glutened, I have very graphic nightmares and psychedelic dreams. Yeah, I know its weird.

I always dream something. I always dream in color and 95% of the time I can remember everything that happens in the dreams. Even lots of times I could actually physically feel things in my dreams. I could write a book about my dreams, lol.
