Vivid dreams cause exhaustion?

I am just wondering why I always feel tired. I usually sleep eight hours and when I wake up (usually in the middle of a dream) I feel as if I just feel asleep. I have THE MOST vivid dreams, almost comparable to real life experiences. The dreams are usually bizarre and include a lot of people that I rarely think about and include things that just dont make sense. I can feel and see and think in the dreams, and I am just wondering if my dreams are causing me to always feel tired and if that is true, what do I do?

Re: Vivid dreams cause exhaustion?

They absolutely make you exhausted! That's what I'm trying to tell everyone!

I have vivid dreams every night ever since about two years ago. I feel your suffering. I feel and taste in my dreams as well as visualize and hear. I usually wake up confused as to whether the events my dreams actually happened because they feel so real. Every morning I wake up exhausted even though I sleep maybe 7-10 hours a night. Very few people believe that I am fatigued because of my dreams.

I'm trying lucid dreaming. I have been able to do it twice. It is very hard to realize that you're in a dream, but I am working on it. Maybe it's the cure to this curse.

Re: Vivid dreams cause exhaustion?

I love my dreams, I just wish I had more time to dream them (I hang on to the idea that longer sleep would make it all better). I dont really know what to do, but I do know that I feel tired all day right up until it is time to go to bed. This hasnt happened to me forever, it just started badly in the last few weeks. My dreams are so vivid that I cant even describe them and when I do people are like "man you have vivid dreams"..just wish I wasnt so tired when I wake up.
what is lucid dreaming?
