The Cause Of Nightmares And Frequent Repression?
I keep feeling nightmares and keep repeating and most often is ketindanan and I want to get rid of it all
Dreams can occur while sleeping. Nightmares can cause feelings of anxiety, worry, fear, and depression. In general, nightmares that only occasionally and do not cause complaints generally do not need to worry. But if nightmares are always repetitive, the theme is the same, causing sleep disturbance and disruption of daily activities, then the condition should be considered again.
Until now the exact cause of nightmares has not been ascertained, however, it is possible related to sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, lack of sleep, previous trauma / bad experiences, stress with anxiety, after reading scary stories or watching horror films, alcohol consumption, drug use, and side effects of certain drugs.
Sleep paralysis is a condition where a person wakes up from sleep but feels unable to move his body, cannot speak out, has difficulty breathing, and can sometimes be accompanied by hallucinations such as seeing spirits. Generally sleep paralysis lasts for several minutes.
There are 2 types of sleep paralysis, namely hypnagogic (before fully sleeping), and hypnopompic (when a person is awake at the end of sleep). Some things that can trigger sleep paralysis include sleep deprivation, irregular sleep patterns, adolescents and young adults, offspring, sleeping on their backs, leg cramps at night, drug abuse, bipolar disorder, and being stressed or overly anxious.
For the time being you can try to improve the quality of your sleep in the following ways:
Try to keep the body sleeping 7-8 hours at night Perform relaxation Warm bath before sleep Sleep on your side Make the atmosphere of the room more comfortable to sleep Reduce caffeine Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption Manage stress well Avoid things that smell of horror If the tips above You still often have nightmares, sleepiness, or you feel that your activities and work the next day are interrupted, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ascertain your condition.
The doctor will conduct an examination including history taking, physical examination, and if necessary a supplementary examination with a polysomnographic examination to ascertain whether nightmares are related to other sleep disorders. Furthermore, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment if necessary. Handling can be with counseling, imagery rehearsal therapy (IRT), and medication if necessary. The type of treatment will be adjusted to the results of your examination.
Hope it helps you,
