Emotion - Uncomfortable.png
An Uncomfortable Sim.

Uncomfortable is an emotion available in The Sims 4. It occurs when Sims have low needs, eat spoiled food or drink, enter a room full of dirty or broken items, wake up after a workout or sometimes when using cheap showers, beds, baths, or other cheap furnitures/appliances. Most Sims also become uncomfortable after eating fruitcake.

The uncomfortable emotion is experienced by child Sims or older. Toddlers who have low needs instead have an angry or sad emotion depending on their trait. This emotion can evolve into very uncomfortable if a Sim's needs are at a very low level or if a Sim accumulates several Uncomfortable moodlets at the same time.

Elder Sims who engage in strenuous activities (e.g. physical exercise or WooHoo) will become "Dangerously Tired" (Very Uncomfortable), which may lead to Death by exertion if they continue to exert themselves.

Pregnant Sims become very uncomfortable when giving birth, and children can throw tantrums while uncomfortable, along when feeling tense.
