      Hands moving while sleeping

      Hi all,

      It's been a while since I've frequented this forum. I haven't seriously pursued lucid dreaming in a while. I still get the occasional lucid dream but they are not very frequent at all and I have very little dream control.

      Maybe 4-5 times in the last 2 months (with increasing frequency) I have woken up during the night to find that my hands are moving on their own. Typically a rubbing rubbing motion with my thumb down and then back up my fingers. Think about if you were trying to use your thumb and index/middle finger to feel the texture of something. That movement except exaggerated. Other than willfully keeping my hands still (not ideal when you're trying to sleep..) the only way to stop the movements are to physically lay on top of my hands.

      The previous times this happened I was able to return to sleep fairly quickly and noticed nothing the follow day. Last night they woke me up several times and kept me up for hours. This morning, if I replicated the movement, I feel what I can only describe as minor electrical shock between my finger tips (think of the sensation of licking a 9V battery, minus the taste) that shoots up my forearm if I press harder.

      There are more situations/movements/details but I think that the description above summarizes the bulk of the sensation.

      Has anyone experienced anything like this before or heard of this happening to someone else? It occurred to me last night that a possible cause could be incomplete sleep paralysis. Like someone whose moves their arm or leg while dreaming and jerks them awake.

      Thanks for your attention!


      As an aside, the dream I was having prior to being awakened the first time was a battle/escape type dream with paranoia type overtones. I felt that I was being lied to/pursued and was responding violently. In hindsight, my pursuers were actually quite calm. It was me that was raising the intensity of the situation.

      “Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”

      Hi there, according to me this is happening due to anxiety. My friend was also suffering from walking in dreams and terror nightmares. As suggested by his uncle, he visited Martine voyance pure par téléphone direct tél medium sérieuse who provided him energy to overcome nightmares and walking n dream. I think you can also check for it.
