Dreams does anybody have them?

I had an AVM in the cerebellum, I don’t dream will I?

I used to dream a lot as a kid. At age 10 when I had my first bleed, I stopped remembering my dreams for many months. Then I suddenly had a dream I remembered, after a sleepover with my little sister. I had a dream that I was drowning… an unpleasant first dream, but I was glad to have the memory of it.
I’ve been dreaming ever since and often remember the dream. My AVM is right prefrontal cortex.

Feel free to reach out any time. I’ve been on here a lot lately.

Hi,

I was just reading a post about dreaming/dreams on here a few days ago.

My dreams are still intact - surprisingly enough

At first, after my embolization my dreams were very intense & lucid. But, now - I’d consider them “normal”.

Unfortunately, I am still using THC gummies & benzodiazepines for sleep. Much lower of a dose than I was on a year+ back, but I still can/do not sleep naturally.

I had a cerebellar AVM rupture 30 years ago. I rarely dream like I used to. I also developed fibromyalgia 2 years after. The two major factors involved with it are chronic pain and non-restorative sleep. I wonder if there is a connection ? Loss of REM sleep?
