Why do I have vivid dreams?

Basically I have been having vivid dreams almost every night for over a year, they can be really good or sometimes really scary more of a nightmare I’m stuck in and others are just plane strange, like I can’t even make this stuff up they’re so weird. They’re mentally draining I never get a rest as my mind is awake... show more Basically I have been having vivid dreams almost every night for over a year, they can be really good or sometimes really scary more of a nightmare I’m stuck in and others are just plane strange, like I can’t even make this stuff up they’re so weird. They’re mentally draining I never get a rest as my mind is awake all through the night. When I wake up I can recall these dreams fully and I may have upto 10 in one night which are all completely different however I wake up between each one sometimes with cold sweats and it’s getting really draining. Also I had sleep paralysis a few weeks ago, does anyone know why this could be :(
