Kick, punch, spit, scream; in real life, while dreaming it

I frequently have vivid nightmares where I try to fight for my life by punching kicking screaming and end up hurting my husband or myself by hitting/kicking the wall. I've even "given up fighting" once in my dream and actually spit at my husband, while spitting at my captor in the dream. I often scream myself awake. And most of the time I know it's a dream, but can't stop the movements and sometimes try to scream and yell myself awake beacause it is so scary. Also, in the last few months (the violence has been a few years, but progressively worse) I started getting night sweats that soak my clothes even though I'm cold, get up to go potty and come back shivering violently cause I'm so cold/wet. Husband gets hurt sometimes when I punch or kick him, but is mostly worried about my emotional health cause my dreams are so scary or emotional sad and upsetting. I worry I'll break a toe, hand or hurt my husband badly with a black eye or something. I don't believe it's "Night Terrors", one because I'm 23 and not 10 years old, and two because I am completely aware of what just happened when I wake up, in fact I remember them for months. ANd even replay those same dreams or continue them. Also I never get out of bed. I am tired alot, have low energy. But don't have sleep apnea. Also I even take an anti-anxiety pill to help me wind-down and sleep. Which I have taken since a kid for insomia. Also, these voilence-to-real-life dreams happen 1-2 times a week. Let me know if you have similar sypmtoms or have the same thing. I don't want to go the the doc quite yet, cause of the cost. Especially without knowing what to get tested for, cause I know she'll just say nightmares oh well. u know? thanx all!

Re: Kick, punch, spit, scream; in real life, while dreaming it

OMG I just most recently started to do this and I am 31 years old. It has me a little worried, the exact same thing (except spit) I am reall close to calling the doctor because I have never done this before and I too go to sleep really cold and wake up in the middle of the night covered in sweat.
