I've been having nightmares more-or-less every night for at least the past several months, and pretty much every night wake up at least once. Always based in realism and never about monsters etc. It's not sleep paralysis, thank god, and it's more of a scary annoyance than anything else, but I don't want this to escalate into something more problematic. (Plus Tay is getting tired of me waking him up in the middle of the night several times a week). A quick sweep of WebMD/etc and I've ruled out the common causes (sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, depression, PTSD, medication-related, drug-related), and I generally get 7 hours sleep so deprivation shouldn't be an issue... so I'm kind of at a loss here. I'm going to work on some lucid dreaming techniques and see if I can fix this before consulting a doc. Anyone else experience regular nightmares or want to chime in?
