I usually don't remember my dreams but I do know how they 'felt' when I wake up. If it was a bad dream, I'd know but wouldn't remember the specifics.

As for the ones I do remember:

When I was a little kid, I had a nightmare wherein the world was gonna end and our parents gave us away to a random stranger who had a spaceship so we could get away. Me and my siblings could only watch as the Earth gets torn into pieces with out parents still there. I remember waking up and crying.

A few years ago, I had a dream that felt so realistic. I was on my bed and someone I couldn't see is trying to suffocate me with a pillow. I knew it was a dream but I couldn't wake up. I tried to scream hoping that it would carry over to real life so someone could wake me up but no voice comes out. I only woke up after praying and my head hurt. It happened again days later but this time, I remembered to pray. I 'woke up' downstairs and it was dark save for the tv being on but the screen is just static. I was behind something so I couldn't see it but I knew, from feeling that someone is sitting on one of the chairs watching tv. I also knew I was still dreaming so I debated with myself whether I'd take a peek at who or what is sitting on the living room chair or just try to wake myself up. I got scared and went for option 2. 'Woke up' in bed and is being suffocated again. This time, I had to say some really random words to finally wake myself up for real. My head really hurt when I got up and was to scared to fall asleep again.

Recurring dream that ceased over 10 years ago:

I used to be an owner-operator household mover contracted out with a major moving company based in state of Indiana 1971-1980. Back then before efficient fax, internet, other transmitted means sanctioned by both Federal and state organizations contract truckers got their permits through snail mail via home address or some pre-arranged PO box. No all states' fiscal years coincided / ended same day / same month so Feds stepped in and made the majority of them adhere to a grace period into the following year that ended Feb.28-29. Come March 1 of that new year you better have all the current year permits handy upon request by authorities or fines will ensue as well as points shaved off your license (maybe).

Every load received had paperwork to accompany it whereupon the shipper or a designate thereof would sign at pickup and delivery. Every load was entered on a manifest sheet turned in at the end of a month's cycle along with other related paperwork. Every driver had to document their trip activities on a 24-hour log and comply with the established hours of service rules in place.

My recurring nightmare was having my 18-wheeler rig parked near my home thinking it was empty, retired, parked indefinitely until I found a new outfit to work with while all permits still plastered on the license plate rack were either invalid or had been removed. Suddenly, I'm expected to be someplace with everything legal plus there was always a full load present inside the trailer unaccounted for with no paperwork, rig had lapsed state permits, lapsed base plate. Wtf? Part of me thought delivery to a destination was feasible so long as no authority figure connected with state patrol, DOT, ICC, MCC noticed and the state weight stations remained closed. Sure, maybe I can set myself up, take uber-risk remaining non-complaint, complete the task via illegal effort but do I want to?

Unfinished business. This nightmarish dream no longer recurs. And for some reason I do not miss it.

Not sure it was a nightmare, but I felt like I was on a swing that wouldn't stop moving, and I was inside of some ball with black dots on it. (happened quite a few times, and the dots were different colors each time, but black was the most common color dot)

I used to have this one reoccurring nightmare, that I haven't had since freshman year of high school. The dream was from my point of view, so I never saw myself like in most dreams; it was just my vision, if that makes sense.

I was in this large room that was always completely write, except there was this long, continuous black line that would spiral around the room in no particular pattern. I compared it to a roller coaster track, mostly because my vision would follow it, as if I was on a ride, following the track.
It would increase in speed, which I had no control over, and the black line would take my straight to a wall, and then stop very abruptly just as I thought I would collide into it. Then the 'ride' would start up again, and this would repeat until I woke up.

You know, I could almost swear I don't dream, because I only remember having a handful in my life. Yes, I know, we dream, even if we don't remember it. Anyway...

For several years as a kid, I did have one recurring nightmare, where I was in an old red pickup in the middle of the woods, with my dad and some other guy (I have no idea who the other guy was, or why he was there. That actually be creepier than the rest of the nightmare now that I think about it, although it certainly wasn't what scared me as a child). The truck, for whatever reason, wouldn't start, and we were being attacked by wolves. Sometimes we were outside the truck when they came out of the black night, other times we were already in the cab. In any case, one of us always had an ax- the only item with us suitable for defense. However, since one guy with an ax isn't very useful in fighting off a pack of rabid wolves, we always got into the cab and tried to roll the windows up as quickly as possible. The dream always ended with us either not rolling the windows up fast enough, or the wolves breaking the glass somehow; one of us would be mauled, and I would wake up crying.

In a mildly ironic twist, wolves are one of my favorite animals to learn about or watch (at parks or in zoos). But they frighten me at the same time, largely because of that nightmare. I don't remember if I became interested in them before or after the dreams started, unfortunately.

Sounds like you grind your teeth in your sleep. I've had a similar dream too.

I don't have nightmares often but the worst was from my childhood.

I was stuck in a glass cube full of water that was in the middle of a room. I couldn't breathe, but I also couldn't move at all for some reason, so I was suspended immobile in the water.

My little brother came in and just stared at me in the cube, but I couldn't move or make any motion to indicate that I needed help, so he just walked back out of the room and left me there. I woke up in a panic.

I had that dream a couple of times when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and I can recall it to this day.

I've had those too. Yes it was grinding teeth. I went to the dentist who made a mouthguard that I wore to bed for two years plus I took up face massage. Now I don't grind at all so no more dreams of teeth falling out and no more painful jaws at night. There are general mouthguards sold at some chemists/pharmacies that are cheap but the best are custom made by the dentist. I've heard those cost a lot though. I wasn't aware of that due to it being covered by our health system.

Here's what they look like.

I would grind my teeth on occasion and have dreams of my teeth cracking and falling out. But I haven't had one in a while and it never became a problem for my teeth. Now my wife on the other hand grinds her teeth a lot. I often wake her up if it's too loud. Some nights she really goes at it and I get worried for her teeth.

My problem is snoring. Some nights my wife has to wear ear plugs. Then I wake up with dry mouth and a bit of a sore throat.

You know when I have my most vivid dreams? During the daytime if I'm taking a nap. Most of the time they're not scary but they are so vivid and feel so real. I'll wake up not knowing where I'm at for a second because it feels like I'm being ripped out of this very real world.

The worst nightmare I've had was probably the one where a woman was whispering in my ear all the ways she would kill me--and it took place in my bedroom. I couldn't move and I stopped breathing--too afraid. At some point I woke up but I didn't recognize it and kept holding my breath thinking she was still there.
