@mazeppabob Thank you for your reply. I knew I couldn't be the only one with strange sleep/dream story. I'm 77 and always had weird dreams and even a hallucination or two before I was twelve. Skipping ahead twenty years I started waking up and the same routine. I was examined multiple times galore assuming that my problem was kidneys. Ten years later snoring became an issue. A new doctor ordered a sleep test. Five tests and as many years the diagnosis was obstructive sleep apnea. No one could answer questions a bout realistic dreams that reloaded at the same point every time I got up and went back to sleep. I have rem sleep but no one can tell me what damage or danger comes from vivid dreams or nightmares. No interest? Or no University specialty?

I was told that if it is unusual or uncommon that no one will spend money to research the disorder so their solution is to first put you on CPAP, then send you to a shrink and prescribe drugs.
