Yes, this happens to me often, several times a year, it's called sleep paralysis. I have to shout to wake myself, it's strange because when I shout, it's not in my normal voice, I mean, I can't put a 'male' voice into effect, so it comes out like a child's voice, which I use to wake me.

No. I never know that I'm dreaming.

I think so, but I don't think it's common.

I manage to do this often. I also "hit" when I fall in a dream, although people say you'll die if that happens. I always smack the ground when I fall in a dream.

Holy moly. I used to experience sleep paralysis SO often when I was younger. Now, it only occurs a couple times a year. I've researched sleep paralysis - it's not that uncommon, I'm happy (or not) to know. It's scary when it happens - and it happens to me just as you describe. I have to "yell myself awake".

It has happened, but now when I realize I am in my dream, I will things to happen.
