      pain caused by dream?

      I didn't realize that lucid dreaming is pretty hard for some ppl to do until I read this article. To me, it comes when I know that I am about to dream. There's this fine line that separates the non-dreaming and dreaming world. To have a lucid dream, I guess the trick is to be aware when you cross that line. But there are times when my body jolts and my leg or arm will get a sharp pain. What happens actually?

      pain?

      That's a tough question...I think that's why no one is responding.

      Sharp pain? Hmm, never experienced that before.
      I've fallen and stuff, thought I felt that, but not the impact on my body.

      wow. maybe you should ask a doctor?

      Thats because your body thinks your falling. And it tries to correct it. But im not sure about the sharp pain. Maybe you hit it on something because of the jolt when you weren't totally awake.

      The ribbon on my wrist says do not open before Christmas.

      So first ask the question, what exactly is pain?

      According to the International Society for the Study of Pain, there are two different terms that are important here: pain and nociception. Pain is a subjective experience that accompanies nociception, but can also arise without any stimuli. It includes the emotional response. Nociception is a neurophysiologic term and denotes the activity in the nerve pathways pretty much the perception of pain.

      Pain is not the gash in your leg, its a response to the gash in your leg. Amputees often feel pain in the limbs that are no longer there, so pain can be experienced without the associated damage to your body.

      So for those experiences when you encounter some kind of event in the dream world that would normaly cause pain here yer mind can make it real to a point, your arent gona spit up blood or have scars form on your body when you wake up. But the pain you experience is quite real, especially for those that experience the dream world in a way that makes the reality you are experienceing right now seem dull and drab.

      When you are falling asleep, and you are on that fine line between dreaming and being awake your brain begins to shut down the motor connections to your body. Yes some people sleep walk and move and talk on occasion in their sleep but in general the body goes sedate except for short moments of time when you toss and turn.
      I think that if you are startled by stimuli from either the dream or from here during this shutdown phase, your brain snaps back into control of your body. Perhaps this sudden jolt sends out random impulses to your limbs and thats why you get those full body twitches =D

      Just an idea I dont really know what causes it for fact.
      "A knight is sworn to valor.
      His heart knows only virtue.
      His blade defends the helpless.
      His might upholds the weak.
      His word speaks only truth.
      His wrath undoes the wicked."

      Impossible is only that which has yet to be imagined

      A few times just before sleep or after sleep when im still in bed, I find that I cant feel where my arms and legs are in relevence to each other, and when I decide to move one leg and it touches my other leg I get a shock from the unexpected touch. I feel like an idiot afterwards
