These last few days I've been wondering about something particular to my situation. I love sleeping and take it very seriously, although I do have nightmares occasionally and disturbing dreams. However, I've lately noticed this: Although I feel pain in various parts of the body during the day, I am never woken up by this pain. Instead, for the first minute after waking up, everything feels perfectly fine. Then, I start thinking whether or not I'm healing or wondering when the pain will come back, and sometimes, without my even moving, something comes back. So I'm wondering, could sleep be the only way my muscles are relaxing? Could I be reactivating my mind each time I wake up and telling it that I should be in pain? Has anyone experienced this? Thanks in advance for your support!
