I can truthfully admit this has happened to me before a couple of years ago.

A couple of things you can do is:

1: Find out what might be triggering these nightmares. Something that may have happened in the past may be the answer.

2: This how long has this been happening and if theres anything you changed before you started having these nightmares that may be causing it, even a slight change in what you eat can trigger this.

3: Try seeing somebody like a physiologist talk to him about your dreams and what happens in them. This might help a lot trust me.

In the meantime if you cannot find out why your having the dreams and cannot see anyone, try staying at a friends and see if it still happens there. Or try having someone sleep in the same room as you and see if it still happens. Also if there paranormal as in demonic put a cross up in your room along with other things that display your religious belief's. Before you go to bed at night pray. (I'm sorry I cannot help a lot with religion I'm Atheist) I hope this helps.

Always Glad to help

Hey there!

I love nightmares! They are really useful, they let us explore the situations / emotions that scare us the most without coming to any harm. Yes they are scary, but they cannot hurt you.

Adrian has some really good ideas. They nightmares are trying to tell you something. Find out what that something is, deal with it in your waking hours and then you will begin to have less nightmares.

PM me anytime

So much for that idea ...

I've been in a similar situation, where I have not so much nightmares as very disturbing scenarios (I watched someone get buried alive once...that was pleasant). Eating certain foods before going to sleep can sometimes trigger weird dreams, or maybe try switching the way you sleep (I switch which end of the bed my head is at each night).

I found that really relaxing myself before sleep helped with nightmares a while ago...admittedly I have weird dreams now, but at the time it was a god send. I got my hands on some relaxation tapes [actually from the heart manual for my arrhythmia, but it worked non-the-less] and they teach you how to seriously relax everything. Not only did it mean I got better sleep, I felt great when I woke up. Both that and soothing musc playing really quietly on my headphones - especially a familiar tune - got me through it.

If they get really horrific, some herbal remedies can help with it - just make sure you get non-chemical ones. I used some called Kalms (Night version) which helped with exam related nightmares.

It can also help to keep a log of your dreams and interpreting what they mean, and sorting out the problem to clear your head.

Good luck!
