This happens to me occasionally. I know this is weird, but I’ve found that if I eat a lot of cheese in a day or close to the time I go to bed then I have nightmares!

@TinyTina: This happened to me a lot and I developed insomnia from it.  The way I got it to stop was by putting on a night light or keeping the tv on.  Strange, I know.

Its weird that you mention it, because Ive had nightmares 3 nights in a row. Well, last night I woke up in a total panic and almost like gasping for air. But I can’t remember what I was dreaming about.

@TinyTina: I always had a hard time falling back asleep after a nightmare.  It’s tough because you’re shaken by it.  Going to bed with a night ligt/tv on always helped prevent it – at least my nightmares were cut down dramatically.  I would even have “night terrors”.  It really, really sucked.  It’s made me terrified of the dark even moreso.

I get nightmares sometimes but I rarely, if ever, remember them upon waking.  Often the only way I know I had one is because Darling Husband will tell me that I woke him up with my moaning and screaming in my sleep.

Hope you can make your’s stop though!

I have nightmares toot, and this might have just been a psychological fix, but, I  put a dream catcher over my bed, and that helped me.  ( I’m Cherokee and blackfoot 🙂 )

The idea behind it is that  the dreams are filterd through the netting and the bad ones are caught and olny the good dreams are allowed though and when the sun hits it in the morning the bad dreams are dispelled.

It’s a little superstituious, but i was desprate lol

My husband has this problem – he had horrible night terrors as a kid and just have never grown out of it. He says the same thing, that it sticks with him all day and its just exhausting – he has several reacurring dreams as well.

Like pitbulllover said, i’ve noticed his nightmares seem to happen if he eats late at night or eats too much before bed, but so far we havent found a cure 🙁

I have horrible zombie nightmares, and for the longest time I couldn’t figure out why.  It turns out it happens when my SO plays zombie video games after I go to bed.  I can hear them from the other room while I’m sleeping so it ends up working its way into my head.  Is it possible something you’re hearing while you’re sleeping is causing it, or something you watch before bed?

ETA: Having nightmares about zombies sounds so dumb, but honestly they’re horrifying! Like wake up sweating and shaking kind of horrifying!

I’m a little different rather than nightmare I have dreams, like crazy vivid dreams. There was a period of about 2 months were I had a dream ever night. Doesn’t sound so bad, but with my dreams I get exhausted! there is some thought that because your mind is so active when you dream, you don’t wake up refreshed! I have no idea! 

Now I only have dreams about three nights a week, last night I dreamed about Lady antebullum, poaching, my old high school, and flooding…. it was all connected, but that all my husband said when I told him. 

The only fix I have found is nyquil. I will take some if I have been dreaming several nights in a row, I was advised it is not something you should take regularly, but if you desparately need some sleep you may want to try it!


Good luck!
