The nightmares also come on late in the night or early morning. These nightmares are often related to post traumatic stress which a person undergoes through his life or during early childhood. These past, traumatic experiences continue to haunt the person. The person is affected at a deep level, both mentally and physically.

  14. Hi I’m 18 years old, I have dreams every night. Most of them are unpleasant and quite frightening. I remember them during the day, some things trigger the memory so I remember. It’s very annoying because I just want to have a good nights sleep and I also have trouble with not knowing what was real and what wasn’t. For example I had a dream of me talking to someone about something, the next day I starting talking with the person about the subject and they had no idea what I was talking about. Then I realised that it was just the dream.
    I have a soft nature and suffer with anxiety which resulted in me taking the medication lexapro.
    Love to hear from you hoping there’s a homeopathic remedy that can heal this!!
