I’m (M50yr) a very vivid dreamer, in that two to five dreams a week I can recall almost every detail- colors, emotions etc…..except every time I try to speak to another person in my dreams, they look at me confused or startled and I wake up panicked. While recite events of my REM, my wife just rolls her eyes ands nods her head out of habit, my family (I only tell them the appropriate dreams) and friends usually enjoy or are shocked with what goes on in my imagination.

About two weeks ago I awoke from what felt like a four hour movie with no recollection of what took place. I can’t recall any detail other than feeling like I was a extra in a movie.

Is this unusual or common? I ask since I wonder if I should see a sleep specialist or talk with my doctor?
