Dreaming ALOT!

HI there,
I don't know if this is the proper forum for this question, but here goes.
For the last 4 or 5 nights I am having very vivid dreams, some that are nightmares. When i wake up, I feel like I have been thru the ringer and really feeling anxious. I normally dream a decent amount, but I wonder what would cause me to have such intense dreams so many nights in a row, all of a sudden. I cant thing of anything new going on in my life. Just the usual stress. Obviously the VA Tech thing has been disturbing me ALOT, so that cant be helping. (I have 3 kids in college). But this started before this incident. Anyway, I would love some input if you have any. Thanks.

Re: Dreaming ALOT!

Well dreaming is a good sign.. it means that you are entering a healthy third stage of sleep and mostlikely do not suffer from a sleep disorder.

Why and the reason for your dreams can not be determined so easily. Keep a sleep log in conjunction with a health log. Practice good sleep hygiene and see if there is an improvement.

Diet can also be an attributing factor. Have you started eating something new? I would look heavily into the stress and anxiety as a source for you dreams.. also TV. Make sure you aer not sleeping with the TV on.. man can that cause some weird dreams. The only other thing that really caused excessively strange dreams for me was the hormone fluxes of pregnancy. I am a martial arts instructor and can not count how many times I kicked my husband out of bed in my sleep.. and I do mean KICKED. Second trimester we were sleeping in separate beds.

My mother had odd dreams when her thyroid went wacky and during menopause.

Best of luck finding your source.

Re: Dreaming ALOT!

There you go then.. the hormones are your culprite. Try ands give yourself stimuli to stimulate vivid good dreams.
