i dream about asthma related things quite often, it can be a big part of my life so its not very surprising, but sometimes i will have several days of very vivid dreams where i have asthma attacks andoftne end up in hosp etc. and then i will get very ill with my asthma. it doesnt always happen before i get ill but i find it quite stressful dreaming about asthma because of this and i wondered has anyone else had this or have any idea why it might be (i have been told by mates that i often wheeze and cough badly in my sleep, but i dont know if i am when i have asthma attack dreams)

Possibly it is to do with coughing during sleep. I get those sometimes too. Although in real life I've never ended up in hospital, the worry is always there. When I'm lacking good sleep that's when those dreams begin.


ive never ended up in hosp either, but im guessing the dreams are my interpretation of it. i wondered if it could be phsycological, in me thinking i was gonna have an attack so i did, but that cant have been it the first time!


I woke up in a huge tizzy at 8.30 this morning as I had a dream I had done my IV paracetamol but had gone to sleep without locking it off when it had finished or doing all the other 6am IV's I was hunting in the bed for the sterile pack with the other stuff in. In the end I got OH up and he said ""you did them and had a cup of tea as well, besides I would also wake you up if you fell asleep without finishing then"" it was so vivid I really thought I had messed up.

My other pet asthma dream is to dream I am having an attack on a neb, I get a rude awakening when I realise the asthma attack bit was real but the neb bit was not!
