What causes nightmares resulting in disturbed sleep?

Hello, I have an easy time falling asleep however, I have multiple vivid dreams a night that wake me up for short periods of time multiple times a night. When I do wake up it doesn t take me long to fall back asleep but I will continue or start a new vivid dream. I never wake up feeling rested because of these multiple vivid dreams. How can I stop this from happening and feel rested in the mornings?

Hi,

Before I could advise you. I need some more information. I need your BMI. Whether you got a double chin, short neck, the reason am asking you these details are the most common cause of night waking up is because of apnea. This sleep apnea syndrome will lead to multiple times awakening. Test like polysomnography, multiple CPAP, weight reductions will definitely decrease and corrects your problem if this was the cause.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Anusha Molugu, Anesthesiologist
