@ddub21, maybe you were sleep walking/running?

@ddub21, I can attest to a similar phenomenon: I had a dream I was getting bit by something and then when I woke up I actually felt like I had a bite on my arm, but nothing was there.

In all honesty, I think it is as simple as your mind triggering the pain response from your nervous system. It’s like when you get a small cut somewhere on your person and it doesn’t start hurting until you see it, THEN the pain sort of rushes in. There have been numerous occasions where such a thing has happened to me. The mind is a fascinating thing, friend.

@ddub21, You don’t have to be running, perhaps while you were sleeping your brain was clenching and unclenching you muscles, and that’s why they got sore.

The mind is a powerful thing.
