Nightmares and Their Causes

Stress or Anxiety?

Life's regular concerns can sometimes turn into nightmares. Worrying about school or work can increase your chances of having one. Larger life events and transitions, like as moving or losing a loved one, can also trigger nightmares.

Mental Health Problems

You're more prone to have nightmares if you're suffering from bipolar disorder, depression, general anxiety disorder, or schizophrenia. Your doctor may recommend stress-relieving exercises or different sorts of therapy to help keep your nightmares at bay.

Before Going to Bed, Eat

A pre-bedtime meal or snack might boost your metabolism, causing your brain to become more active. If you're getting more nightmares than usual, attempt to limit your after-dinner indulgences.

Misuse and Withdrawal of Substances

If you abuse alcohol or drugs, you may experience more nightmares. Withdrawal from alcohol or drugs can also increase the likelihood of them occurring. Opioid medicines, for example, have an effect on the areas of your body that control sleep. You may experience a restless night's sleep, but you'll be able to transition between stages of sleep considerably more quickly. That has the potential to cause nightmares. The dreams may persist after you've gone through withdrawal and your routines have re-adjusted.
