anyone get any of these, i get them all, all the time... restless leg syndrom has t be the most annoying thing in the world probably more annoying that dp when u have to go to work after not sleeping!!!!!!!!!!! lucid dreams are sooooo cool, tho u do feel more awake in them than when ya actually awake which can get confusing, sleep paralysis is a little bitch, can be sooooooooooooooooooo scary but once u get used to it its just a pain in the arse!! sleeping in genral is just crap for me ... my thought are always sooo random like im just l.istening to someone else talking bollox lol, and sometimes i wake up not knowing who i am etc. last night i woke up holding my breath, wasnt amuesd (spelling) ... cheers jay

I don't know what sleep paralysis is, but I dream almost nothing but nightmares, and frequently night terrors. The only time I didn't have a nightmare was when I liked this guy. Not even dating, but for some reason I didn't have a nightmare for 2 months. Then it didn't go anywhere, so I stopped, they started again.

Yup, you are not alone here either - I have some nights were my mind doesn't seem to simmer down and all night I'm in and out of sleep. The thoughts can get pretty weird at times; I don't know what the cause of it is, but it's there.

It's interesting to me that it can happen a lot when my mind is busy on something in particular - like something I can't figure out at work or whatever. The interesting part about it is that you wake up almost in a dazed state, like you're not quite attached completely, and after a while it's completely gone - almost like one half of your brain did not wake up fully - as in a residual sleep state or something. Very bizarre.

I imagine it's nothing to worry about, just your brain doing funny things. It's definitely not comfortable, though.

I have lucid dreams. Really enjoy them, but I'm sure they aren't good for dp, I often feel very odd the day after. I also have realistic dreams about taking various drugs, usually intense ones like nitrous, and sometimes wake up still high.

I don't get rls.

lucid dream, are great... basically, you wake up in your mind.. not just a little bit, but your wide awake and it feels like your on coke or some high energy drug, sometimes you can do what u want sometimes u think u can and ive ended up running into walls and falling over, but it doesnt hurt, there no pain and ive been able to fly. And there is usally a sex based version of lucid dreams that come along occasionally which is nice. j

I've had sleep paralysis (properly called Awareness During Sleep Paralysis with Hypnogotic Hallucinations) since I was a kid. It's scarey, but harmless. I kind of enjoy it now, now I understand what it is. Sort of like taking a ride on a rollercoaster or watching a horror film - scarey, yes, but kinda exciting. Think of it that way and it's not quite as dreadful.

Anyway, it's just a small balls-up in the sleep process, usually due to interupted sleep patterns. Of course, fans of the X-Files believe it's something to do with aliens or goblins, but I assure you it's not. Check out the internet for more information,

I had that mix (with up to 10 hours of sleep paralysis) after trauma.

I found that I was not properly awake during the day and waking up more would help.
Also it was strongly related to anything related to the trauma that I did during the day.. or if took or did anything to help desensitize.

I found that during my sleep I would often relive the events metaphorically and that I could deal with the issues in my sleep, sometimes in the ?th person (that is seeing my consciousness metaphorically presented to me by someone else who instructed me in what to do).

sometimes I would have conversations with my partner whilst 'asleep' sometimes I would also have mild tremors in sleep during episodes (according to partner), sometimes I would just be stuck in a wake sleep cycle.. (sometimes waking only to blink and sleep again).

often it would be the room I was in that I would see, but with my emotional state adding to it.

Also was withdrawing from nuroleptics at the time too.... so homeostasis was affected by receptor up-regulation following narcoleptic.

With very hard work, just over a year to pretty much recover.

Some 'back street pharmacy' things helped at times..... nothing proscribed was found to be beneficial.
