My sleep has improved from 2 1/2 years ago but I still struggle with it. I still wake in the middle of the night but I fall back asleep and go in and out of intense dreaming that makes me wake edgi and tired. I feel dizzy, tired and edgi especially when a stressful event is happening. Then the symptoms grow worse. I don’t avoid the event but the symptoms are a big distraction. I am happy about the ability to fall back asleep but hope the interrupting anxiety dreams will stop or minimize. Anyone else have this?
Hi there Sorry to hear you are going through this. Do you take sleeping pills to help you get to sleep? If you are, then they might be the cause of the dreams. I take sleeping pills that make my dreams a bit funky and weird so I thought that might be the reason. I have had the same thing happen to me a few times, so I know how you feel. Hope you can resolve it Emma
Sorry to hear about your struggle with sleep and nightmares in particular, jfig. When do you normally go to bed at night, when do you get out of bed to start your day in the morning, and roughly how many hours of sleep do you get on a typical night?
Bed by 10 or 1030 at the latest. Up 530 or 6 am the latest. I wouldn’t describe them as nightmare but more of vivid dreams with anxiety themes. Not able to accomplish important tasks for example. They wake me 3 or 4 am. Then it’s in an out of sleep with dreams every time I fall back so it is totally interrupted sleep on the back end. I figured I just started being able to fall back to sleep easier so maybe a Rehm rebound or something.
