Welcome to HCM. Nightmares can be caused due to sleep deprivation, sleep disorders, tension, depression, anxiety, stress, post traumatic stress disorders. It can also occur due to intake of some medications, drugs, narcotics,etc.

Don't worry, it is the first time it happened to you. Just stop taking any drugs, alcohol that may trigger nightmares and cause you restlessness. Avoid taking snacks late night as it has the tendency to increase metabolism and activate the brain cells and neuro transmeters.

Try to sleep on a comfortable mattress. Read or watch a comedy movie before you sleep. yoga, exercises and meditation will be helpful for you. If still you have nightmares you should see a counselor/ psychiatrist. Take care.

Hi there ~

What happened to you may have been due to a number of reasons. Chronic sleep deprivation can cause you to have nightmare. So can post traumatic stress. I would recommend that you maintain a routine sleep hygiene. Please see a psychiatrist if your symptoms are not being relieved with the above measures. Take care and have a lovely day !
