It's funny how the body still reacts on actions on the dream, even after we wake up.

Today i dreamt i was attacked by a snake. The snake jumped at me and bit me on the left side of my neck. I woke up imediately and i still was feeling the bite and a nerve on that side of my neck was twitching for about 10 seconds.
The mind and the power of suggestion is a very powerful thing.

I also had kind of the same thing happen to me. A nurse stuck a needle in my arm, and I woke up feeling it in the same place. Dreams are weird, man. :lol:

I had a dream very similar to this many years ago. I was walking onto the porch of my parent's house. When I reached for the screen door handle I noticed a snake on the ground. With no time to react, it jumped up and but my wrist and I was instantly zapped awake by this sensation. I also felt a sort of pain for almost a minute afterward. I concluded that I had not hit my hand, and anyway, how would I know to dream up a snake to bite me BEFORE I felt the pain from hitting my hand that my dreaming brain would need to explain? Perhaps it was a muscle twitch or spasm?
