Intravenous Drip Dream Symbol


Last Updated on

Intravenous Drip – Dreaming about an intravenous drip, or IV, is a symbol of being in desperate need of help, which you feel can only come from outside yourself. This need for help may be because you have let yourself become overexerted or exhausted in some way, and are in desperate need of nutrition and rest, either physical, mental, or emotional.

You also have a desire to have someone else help you out of your predicament and come to your aid as a rescuer of sorts. It is important to note that in your real life, unlike in medicine, the most powerful change must come from you.

  1. I dreamt that I was in the hospital where my girlfriend works as an auxiliary nurse,sick and on intravenous drip and at some point I was bleeding from my hand when the cannula was carelessly opened. But that was taken care of and I even got to meet some of my girlfriend’s coworkers

    Hi last night I dreamt of taking drip at the hospital sitting on the hospital bed.Can you please let me know what that means..thanks Leo

  3. In my dream I was watching a movie in a strange environment. IV IV IV IV appeared in the movie in the dream. It also appeared in other places too in my dream. Pls help

  4. I was given snake venom in an IV in my dream … the IV was forced on me and I didn’t trust it cuz …snake venom the nurse said this is the only way we can heal you … I was rather worried they were going to kill me

    The wanting of outside help makes sense. I am taking care of my mother who is in last stages of Dementia by myself …24/7 days off. …. dealing with delusions and hallucinations ..I have to bath her etc etc

    outside help would be such a nice thing

  5. Hello,
    Last night I dreamt that I went to hospital of some kind mixed with a busy place and an old friend there with her celebrity friend. I said something about her being a rubbish friend to me back in the day but it wasn’t that much of a big deal, and she embarrassed me in from of the celeb, who is actually her best friend in reality. Anyway, what was weird was that my current boyfriends ex partner came into the dream and she was a nurse of some kind that I can remember, and told me it was kind of in my favour to stay at hospital and be put on a drip but if you are busy tonight then don’t tell anyone I didn’t tell you so. Type of thing. I told her if my boyfriend comes to visit once i’ve told him i’m on a drip in hospital he will want to come I am sure, is this okay with you? I like you (to the ex partner) and so it wouldn’t be weird for me, would it be weird for you? She wasn’t sure but because she was the nurse and he was my boyfriend she had to agree even though she wasn’t sure. I remember her checking my water in my body somehow and it was very low. I don’t think my partner could make it in the end, I can’t remember. I also remember an old primary school friend disguising herself in clothes and had a bump to show she was pregnant, then kissed her older sister who may as well have been in the hospital, I don’t know that was just random. But I felt when I woke that I liked his ex partner after my dream, it was strange.
