Glad you are sober.
We can't tell you how long yours will last, only our experiences.
For me, I had extremely vivid nightmares at the end (last few months) of my drinking, which became very vivid dreams in sobriety, and faded to "normal dreams" which I occasionally remember. Along the way (I am now 20+ mo sober), during the first 6-9 mo I think, I had a few "drinking dreams" that stunned me awake. Still remembering the feeling of waking up from a couple and realizing it was just a dream.
I still struggle with night sweats, though usually not drenching like at the beginning, and I drink a TON of fluids so I often wake up to use the bathroom. Sometimes I still get a parched mouth and I am pretty much obsessive about always having water and another "flavor" bev on hand, at all times. For me, these symptoms plus a need to nap more days than not - it either stems from "emotional overload" and a need for a "break", or fatigue because I expend a LOT of energy in my daily life now (i do hot yoga 90 min, 6x a week, I run a 5K or two every month, I am on the board of a recovery group, I do AA 4-6 times a week, I have a fiance and a step-daughter-to-be to take care of and....) - are fine alternatives to the terrible-ness of my drinking days.
Staying sober means I kept getting- keep getting- healthier. Learning to listen to what my body needs is an ongoing process and it has to be a priority in order for everything else to be do-able.
You can get through this early part. Keep going.
