Also the behavior your describing sounds like night terrors because usually when you yell in a dream it doesnt correlate to the outside world (at least in my experience and what I've read).
It sounds as if you are in a panic that that is possibly preventing you from being able to wake up and instead throwing you into a nightmare. You probably would be better if if you faced your fear of not waking. Cause you will always end up waking up (till the day you actually do die and I doubt that is about to happen).
Have you ever thought about trying to ENJOY the lucid state you find yourself in? You can learn to control anything you come across there.. so its safer then in real life. If you can get rid of your fears you may wake up far easier.
It is your own dream and when you are lucid you can manipulate it. You fear it now, i don't think it is a great thing to do. It is your own dream and you are the only one who can manipulate it. If you fear it it will become a nightmare, if you love it it will be a great experience. Try to enjoy it !
Our subconciousness actually creates what is happening our dreams and your thoughts create the dream. If you have scary thoughts while dreaming.. you will then go and create those scary things into your dream be it monsters or whateer.
Hence it can also work that way with thought "Im stuck!! cant wake up"... your subconsciousness due to your fear can create that situation for you for a while. The best way around it is to get over that fear.
You just think of waking up and you're up, that's what I do, but if this doesn't work simply turn around the dream and imagine you are on the top of a terrace and simply jump off it.
Warning: Make sure it is a dream.

If the light doesn't come on I realize I'm in a dream. I then start yelling within my dream to wake myself up. If I don't wake up, I yell louder so my wife wakes up and shakes me. She has a difficult time waking me, and while she is doing this, I feel like someone is chasing me, grabbing at me. The more I get grabbed, the more scared I become, and the more panicky I get. I'm afraid if this happens and my wife isn't there to wake me, I won't wake up. Any suggestions as to how I can wake myself or how I can keep from having such dreams?
Why would you want to wake up?
