16yr old female exhausted from vivid and active nightly dreaming

Patient

Q: I have a 16 yr old daughter that is having very active and vivid dreams. So much so, that she's exhausted when she wakes up. This has been going on for about 6 months. She is an honors student and plays softball, and is getting about 7 hours of sleep each night. She told me that if she dreams she ran a 5k, she wakes up feeling like she's been running for miles. I don't know what to do or where to start to help her.

Symptoms:  Exhausted after full nights sleep
