Nightmares

A nightmare is a dream that causes strong emotions like horror, despair and terror.  Most often people experiencing nightmares are in some form of life threatening ‘situations” like drowning or dying.  Nightmares are usually caused by psychological trauma or stress.  When a person experiences horrible ordeals like being kidnapped, the events sometimes come to haunt them as nightmares.  Nightmares are common enough but recurring nightmares sometimes need the attention of professionals as they hinder the ability to sleep after the nightmare.

Nightmares are symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Another definition of nightmare is to wake up from a normal dream cycle and experience negative emotion like fear.  Young children under the age of 5 rarely experience nightmares.  Adolescents have the most frequent occurrence of once per week.  Adults usually have nightmares once a month.  As we get older, nightmares lessen in frequency.  This probably co-relates with the ability to deal or cope with stress and other emotional problems.
