    I often get nightmares when I have a migraine. I don’t know if it’s caused by the migraine itself or by the migraine medicine, or if it’s just a coincidence (since, after all, correlation does not imply causation), but almost every time I go to bed with a migraine, I have a nightmare or three. Most of the time these are recurring nightmares (drowning, getting stung by wasps, the brakes not working in the car), but other times they’re completely random and bizarre.

    I hate bad dreams.  I get them if I have lots of stress or if I drink a little…

    For some reason I only, and have always, had only nightmares.  Some are more intense than others but they’re all nightmares.  I don’t know why.  Sigh.

    yes.  i have lots of nightmares, always have.  SO thinks it’s weird since he says he never has them.  Typically my drerams are about people dying or disappearing forever in someway.

    I had a nightmare last night too 🙁  They are so awful.  I usually try to “control” them, lucid dream a little, but yikes, can they be bad.  I have to consciously forget them the next day to not be affected.

    Usually when I got to bed, depends one what mood Im in. If I have been in a bad mood all day, I’ll usually have a nightmare. If you get to read a book or something before you go to sleep that usually helps me to settle my mind before I fall asleep. And just like piratejenn said, everytime I have a nightmare, its almost a reality. Like if I fall or scrape my arm, its almost as if I actually feel it. My vote was the sometimes, but I have notice I get them sometime with my migraines as well. I just wonder if its connected to the medicine.

    @LindsayB: yeah, it sucks, but I’ve kind of gotten used to it?  It wasn’t till I was about fourteen that I started realizing all my dreams were nightmares, and to prove this was actually true, and not just selective memory, I started writing down my dreams every night, or what I could remember of them.  Yep, all nightmares.  I don’t know what the deal is. 

    And I’ve heard it said that most people dream in black and white, and without dialog, but is that true??  I’ve never had a black and white dream, nor have I had a dream without dialog, so I find that hard to believe.  The black and white thing I find especially hard to believe.  Why would we dream in black and white when we experience the waking world in vivid color?  What about the rest of the bees, what are your dreams like?

    I used to have full on night terrors when I was planning the wedding where I thought people were chasing me/trying to hurt me but since the wedding I haven’t dreamed much, or haven’t remembered them really.

    I started having more nightmares when I got pregnant.  It’s the weirdest thing; my nightmares aren’t necessarily pregnancy-related, but now I have them almost every night.
