I actually had a similar expereince many years ago (I've had several expereinces, fyi)
Only, my sharp pain was in my lower back.
I awoke (it seemed) paralized, on my side, in a dark place, knowing that someone was operating on my back and the extreme pain of it woke me.
When they realized i was awake the pain stopped, though I could still feel them 'in there'.
Someone, matter of factly, told me they were removing a kidney stone and I should go back to sleep (not sure if it was said outloud or into my mind)..which I did immediatly.
My lower back was very sore and tender for a day or two after that, but there were no marks.
It might have just been a vivid dream (maybe I was jus tpassing a stone in my sleep and the pain woke me up and my subconscious filled in the details)...but I have had other experiences (that were way more vivd, detailed, and NOt dreamliek at all), which makes me wonder about this event too.

What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
