While I'm sleeping I hurt myself. Scratches on my face, arms etc. I wake up with gouges out of me.

I'm 60 yrs old and live alone. Every so often I wake up with gouges/scratches on my face or arms but mostly my face. Last night I woke myself up because of the pain. Gouge out of my forehead.
There's no rhyme or reason to when it happens, but I am aware of it happening after I've hurt myself. I awake frustrated.
I know I can cut my nails (they aren't long) or wear gloves, but I would like to know why it's happening. I've been doing this for about 9 months.
Any information or knowledge of this would be greatly appreciated.
