      Is WILD supposed to be painful

      So I was trying to WILD last night and got further than I usually do. Normally no matter how long I wait I only get the tingling sensation in my hands and feet, but now it was up to my knee and forearm. I waited for a long time as it began to move up my arms and legs. Suddenly the tingling in my feet changed to a burning feeling. This got worse and worse. I told myself that I could just ignore it and the Lucid would be worth the pain. But I couldn't and the pain soon became so unbearable that I had to move. As soon as I moved the burning feeling left my feet and I felt totally normal. Any one know why I felt pain or If this is supposed to happen when you WILD.

      hmm, I know from experience that WILD is very annoying because of the wait, but, if you exercise before bed, you'll easily get the vibrations and this is talking from experience Anyways, WILD isn't supposed to be painful, its possible that it was all in your mind OR your foot was under another, so, it became numb and I'm sure you know how much that hurts if you try to move it

      wow really weird! i think the same thing happ. to me! i was about to post this thread too! i got the same feeling when i tried to WILD last night, it felt like both my legs had fallen asleep, an i got that sharp like pins an needle shooting through your limb feeling that you get when you try to walk on a leg thats asleep. except i was laying still an my legs werent locked or anything to cut off the blood flow. so i have no idea why it happened. i also was forced to give up it hurt too bad but once i moved the pain instantly fell away, an if my leg was really asleep it would've taken a couple minutes to completely go away. < was it anything like your limbs fell asleep? then we have the same problem but still no answer sorry i cant be of more help

      Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible.

      You can try stretching, it might wake you up a lot though. It's good if you go to sleep easily, bad if you are like me, who have a hard time getting to sleep.

      If there's pain then you are probably stopping circulation to a limb, either that, or you are already dreaming.

      That would be a problem as I quite often suffer from insomnia. And I find it hard to sleep every night

      When you lay still for long enough, your body sends you uncomfortable signals to test if you're asleep. If you're awake you move to get rid of them, if you're asleep you don't move and your body falls asleep. I've experienced it as if my body was twisted and contorted. My guess is that it's just some form of this. If you wait it out, it goes away.

      Try going to sleep normally, then when you know you are about to go to sleep just focus, it's a lot easier to do then to put in words.
