Our expert says:
This is surely a variety of dream, rather than some warped form of reality ? Unless you have discovered piles of sinister hardware and equipment around the house.
Rivotril is greatly over-prescribed, but presumably helps simply as a sedative which makes you sleep more deeply than when you are having these bad dreams.
As you have had this experience for 20 years, its unlikely to have any sinister cause ( or whatever that was would surely by now have developed into something unmissable ).
Sounds like bad dreams and a variety of sleep disorder, apparently related to the depth of sleep you achieve, as meds which alter sleep and dream patterns, seem to reduce or eliminate it
