Can You Go Into A Coma From Lucid Dreaming
No: A lucid dream is one in which the person is aware they are dreaming. It is a fascinating topic to read about. I'm not an expert, but relatively common medical knowledge suggests that quite simply, you would wake up at some point. I "think" you can dream you are in a coma as part of a lucid dream, but again, at some point, yoiu would wake up in the usual fashion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lucid Dreaming: Lucid dreaming is dreaming while knowing you are dreaming -- realizing within a dream that the experience you're having, is not in physical reality. It's not the same as controlling your dreaming. "how to do it" takes more than 400 characters. There are several web sites describing techniques, research, and conferences about it. One is: http://www. Lucidity. Com/ good luck to you. ...Read more
Rational dreaming: Lucid dreaming involves some type of rational input into the dream. That input could simply be our reassuring ourselves that we are safe. For example, saying to oneself, in the dream, that it is a dream. The input could be more elaborate with our rational mind coming up with a solution to a problem. Some people can influence their dreams by programming them through self-talk before falling asleep. ...Read more

Lucid dreams OK: Some people can have lucid dreams, most people cannot. Lucid dream means one is aware one is dreaming, and can control the content to some extent. The dreams are vivid. Patients with narcolepsy are more likely to have vivid dreams as well as hypnagogic hallucinations (vivid dreaming before falling asleep or after waking up). Lucid dreams by themselves do not cause any other problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With "Dream work up": In my opinion lucid dreaming is part of sleep hygiene, such as good and timely comfortable sleep. Choline is an amino acid that also promotes acetylcholine, therefore enhancing the expression of REM sleep. It can be cheaply found as a Lecithin supplement, but is also present in some common foods such as bananas, onions, soybeans, potatoes and plantains. I am not sure there are ways to get a dose. ...Read more
What's the Diagnosis: Now that's an interesting question. I am trying to think of different pathological states of sleep disorder where dreaming is affected. In those states, REM sleep is also altered and therefore, treatment would involve trying to rectify that sleep phase. However, one would not necessarily look to induce "lucid" dreaming-just normal dreaming. I don't get the medical benefit of "lucid" dreaming. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When on your back, and don't move at all and you start experiencing horrible hallucinations. What's the difference between this and lucid dreaming?
Parasomnia: These episodes are called sleep paralysis. It occurs when REM atonia (normal paralysis during dreaming), extends into partial wakefullness state. Happens to most people on rare occassion. If frequent, can be associated with sleep apnea and narcolepsy. Please visit with your doctor. ...Read more
self-talk: Lucid dreaming is usually desired because it gives the dreamer control and awareness. But to answer your question, some people can influence their dreams with self-talk or self-hypnosis before they fall asleep. So if one did not want to spoil happy dreams with lucidity, one could theoretically say to oneself that they will enjoy their dreams without any rational input. ...Read more

We are not sure: Lucid dreaming is the conscious awareness of dreaming during rem sleep. There is no well documented evidence of bad effects of lucid dreaming. However, it may be because there is not a lot of people doing that type of research. Some medications that can prevent rem sleep, are not associated with observable ill-effects. That being said, we are learning that rem is very important for memory. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A lucid dream is any: Dream in which you are aware you are dreaming. It can be positive, beneficial. Vivid nightmares are not so good. When you awaken you may “re-write” nightmares by thinking of different (positive, under your control and desire) outcomes to events in the nightmare. Repeated practice may train your brain to re-write the dreams for you. I have helped myself and many others succeed at this. Best regards ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
