      Unusual sensation. What is it, and do you experience the same.

      Recently I have started meditating but am finding it quite difficult, as an unusual sensation has come to light.
      The sensation has always been with me, but my practice in meditating has just made me more aware that it is there.
      It is not fear, but seems to be a very weakened down version of it.
      A little like aprehension, or expecting something bad to happen.
      Quite similar to watching a horror movie, and expecting a fright.
      Sorry if my description is not very clear, but the emotion/sensation is difficult to put into words.
      Any ideas, or similar sensations ?

      Sounds like Akathisia. Usually it's the result of a disorder or drugs, but meditation can alter brain chemistry and possibly enough to give you this. Or, you may have some sort of generalized anxiety, I don't know.

      My vote would be for mild generalized anxiety. Luckily, lucid dreaming and meditation are both highly effective treatments for anxiety. Also, you may find that certain drugs might be contributing to this feeling. Even caffeine can cause this feeling for some. You would want to obviously consult your doctor before making any changes to drug dosages, but you could cut back on caffeine (if you do indeed consume any) and see if it helps at all.
      I'm not always lucid, but whether I'm awake or asleep I'm always dreaming.
