19 May Stress Dreams Keeping You Awake? You May Be a Candidate for a Sleep Study
Most people know that they need to get 8 hours of sleep per night to stay as healthy as possible. However, the average person isn’t getting enough sleep at night for one reason or another. For some people, it has to do with time management; for others, it is their sleep environment, but it all comes down to stress for some people.
Stress dreams, or anxiety dreams, are very real and cause more distress than any nightmare. If you find yourself suddenly feeling distressed, uneasy, or apprehensive, you may be experiencing stress dreams. For some people, their dreams manifest in them falling, getting embarrassed, being in trouble, or being pursued by another person. Some people have stress dreams resulting in a recent conflict or even a childhood drama. Most people with stress dreams find they cause them to wake up suddenly and often struggle to fall back then asleep.
Stress dreams are not always linked to real-world stress of anxiety. Some people find that treating their real anxiety isn’t enough to keep the stress dreams at bay.
If this sounds like the type of situation that keeps you up at night, you may be a candidate for a sleep study. Here at LT Men’s Clinic, we understand how difficult it can be to diagnose your sleep issues. This is where sleep studies come in handy. You may already assume that stress dreams are at the root of these problems, but several other factors may indicate that it’s time for you to get a professional sleep study. If you’re tired during the day, wake up often during the night, toss and turn, or if your partner notices you waking up (even if you don’t realize it), then it may be time for a sleep study.
Along with your sleep study, our team of medical experts can help make sure you are getting to the root of your sleep issues, including determining the cause of your stress and how it may be impacting your sleep.
