      Exclamation Problem makes lucid dreaming unenjoyable

      for the past year or so, i would always wake up covered in sweat upon awakening, from head to toe dripping as if i ran a marathon in the desert. What i did not account for was that the time this started happening, was when i first started lucid dreaming. Now whenever i have a dream where im lucid, the following morning i will wake up sweating.
      tl:dr lucid dreaming makes me wake up sweating
      any suggestions? thank you

      Hm, are you sure it's not a coincidence? Could you be having nightmares on those days? What do you do in your Lucids? Do you remember having bad feeling from them?

      If you remember your lucid, I'm gonna guess that you wake up after LD and then you go back to sleep. Are you all sweaty after the lucid, or just in the morning?

      Do you sweat trying to lucid dream before going to sleep? I know I will if I have a sweatshirt+pajama bottoms on and a blanket over me. Maybe removing your blanket and/or some of your clothes would help. It helps me.

      That is strange. You don't sweat during normal dreams? Does it feel like you are overheating, or overstressing?

      I don't see any way that the sweating could be related to being lucid in your dream. It has to be coincidence, or something you are doing differently in your life.

      Is it cold sweats? or are you hot? are you eating something different? ingesting anything differently? stressing more? It could be many things, but I just highly doubt it has anything to do with lucid dreaming.

      Are your lucids nightmares? Other than that, I can't think of anything. Lucids are same as regulars, only difference is the awareness. Sorry, was not able to help you out.

      It might be the excitement of becoming lucid itself.

      Do you sleep in a different position when you lucid dream? Maybe it has something to do with your breathing, or lying on your back, or something. This is so weird.

      That's a good idea, especially on the stomach it could be that, I sleep on my side all the time and seem fine.

      I think it is either something different your doing, coincidence, eating/drinking something different, or overheating. Otherwise I Anthony think anything else could cause it. Maybe you have some kind of illness and you should see a doctor or clinic about it. Sorry can't help you much.

      I have been an lucid dreamer my whole life I have used it to my advantage changing past events that effected me ect. However I do sweat when I go lucid this is because your body is firering off all the same sensory signals as if you were awake and this can cause one to sweat whilst asleep, uasally waking up and taking the duvet off for a minute or too will help but it is common to sweat whilst you are lucid and vivid dreaming.

      I suggest just making sure you stay hydrated and drink water. Their are herbal remedies to help with calming you whilst you sleep and this may also help.
