Sleep Issues :: Vivid Dreams In A Small Room - Lack Of Oxygen?

Feb 11, 2015

Recently I've been sleeping in a very small room. Due to this I try to leave the door slightly open to allow more oxygen in as I'm concerned that the room is too small to sleep safely in overnight. However sometimes I can’t leave the door open - for example if we have guests staying over. I’ve found that when the door is closed all night I tend to dream more vividly. I'm wondering if I'm dreaming more due to a lack of oxygen?

Citalopram :: Vivid Dreams

Hi all, I've been on cit for about 7 months now, its slow going but I am progressing to recovery, i'm pretty certain of that. My question is regarding some very vivid dreams i'm having, they can be about absolutely anything but in them I have the most severe depression/anxiety where there is absolutely no hope for me, they're freaking me out a little as i'm now thinking these dreams will become reality. Has anyone else suffered from horrible dreams whilst on cit?

Vivid Dreams - Common Side Effect Of Fluoxetine

I know dreams are a common side effect of fluoxetine, but do they ever settle down?

I seem to be having quite a few vivid and realistic dreams per night, usually about things that are worrying me which then makes me question myself as to whether it was a dream or not!

Has anyone experienced this and did it settle for you? Or is there anything we can do to ease it?

Insomnia - 27 Years - Vivid Dreams And Wake Up Every Hour (1 Month)

I have been suffering from insomnia for the past 2 months. It all came suddenly. I had shifted to a new country and had been living there for one month when this problem started. Initially, I stayed up extremely late- till early in the morning at 5 am and would fall asleep and wake up at 12 pm or later. But slowly, I ended up sleeping less and less. Nowadays, I can only sleep for 2-3 hours at most, and I end up waking every hour, and have extremely vivid dreams. I yawn throughout the day. When I do fall asleep during the day it is only for 30 mins or so, during which I have vivid dreams of me doing something or talking to someone. When I wake up I realise it was just a dream- but it was so like real life that its hard to distinguish it from reality. I also sometimes wake up drenched in sweat. I am so scared this might be fatal insomnia. What should I do? Try as I might, I cannot go off to sleep at night. I am so scared. Its as if I have lost the power to sleep. There is no history of fate insomnia in my family. But I have heard of a disease called sporadic fatal insomnia which doesn’t require a family history. I am 27 years old.

Headaches :: Due To Stress And Lack Of Sleep?

I'm 16 and consider myself to be quite healthy. About two weeks ago I started to get headaches that have been constant every day (I still have them now). The pain is quite dull, the pain is not so bad that I can't continue with my daily activities but it's still there. They also come and go. I don't wake up in the middle of the night because of them but I get them constantly throughout the day.

After a week of having these headaches I went to my doctor who suggested it was stress and lack of sleep (I have just started college) but I'm not so sure. He also suggested it could be eye strain and advised me to go get my eyes tested which I am going to soon. I am worried it could be a brain tumor or another serious illness. What do you think?

Sleep Disorders :: Feel Myself Falling In Dreams

I am not pregnant and I am still single. I am going to be 22 years old this year. I have some nightmare dreams. I am going to tell you one. In this dream I was climbing on a building at first. Then a guy pushed me from behind and I started to fall. I can feel myself falling even though I am on my own bed. Most of the time I am dreaming of me singing on the stage. Other times I become one of the characters in my dream and at the end I get killed. Or I dream nothing at all. What does this mean? Am I seeing the future or Is it just my dreams have gone wild?

Slightest activity gives me palpitation and and exhausting feeling.Since Middle of March I've had various investigations (Ct head ,neck ,abdomen and pelvis,ultrasound scan of liver ,gastroscopy ,24 hour heart monitor ,heart echocardiogram -all normal)My bloods were normal too except for liver function (ALT and AST) which are improving too.I'm at my wits end .awaiting to see a rheumatologist who will hopefully shed some light.The worst part is not being able to sleep for more than 2-3 hours per night,the inability to move about without getting extreme exhaustion and the lack of appetite together with very dry mouth when eating.

Bipolar Affective Disorder :: Bad Anxiety And Lack Of Sleep

I have suffered with anx and depression for many years, but lately bipolar has been mentioned by my therapist. Could I run through my main symptoms and you kind people can give an opinion? I have bad anxiety most of the time, I don't have a classic high, my high is more about lack of need for sleep, don't seem to need much food, loads of creative work going on and I get really out of sorts if I'm interrupted. My downs happen generally after a high time of a few weeks, then I just crash out - don't want to do anything or talk to anyone

Hormone Replacement Therapy - Lack Of Sleep (menopausal For 12 Months)

I have been menopausal for 12 months or maybe longer so the doc thinks. I turned 50 last August and thought I could deal with all the symptoms but its driving me crazy now! Hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, anxiety......but the worse for me is the lack of sleep! This is awful! Its making me like a zombie and my eyes are black!! Such a vicious circle. Today I have had a long talk with my husband and we have talked about HRT! It makes me so scared about taking it but I am feeling so awful that I'm now considering it. Any ideas of a good low dose HRT that I can talk over with the doc. How has it been for you taking HRT?

Trouble Breathing - Not Enough Oxygen For Brain - Lightheaded

I'm 21, male, has asthma as an infant, grew out of it but I remained with a lot of allergies and have been on allergies medication more years than not.

My mom suffers from cyclothymia and told me that it may be a precursor to that and that my breathing could be attributed to anxiety even though I'm not worried about anything, that would explain why I feel better after some exercise, although it's getting harder to start each time, light headed and all of that.

Also very rarely I manage to take a deep breath with just my nose. But even when that happens I don't feel good. Like my brain lacks oxygen (get a little light headed when taking deep breaths, and it lasts for about a second.)

I'm planning on going to the doctor but mine is on vacation so I'd have to wait until tuesday and was hoping any of you could give me some tips aas to what I'm having. I got a little nervous because my mother's cousin got diagnosed with lung cancer recently after having a cough that didn't got away. (No history of cancer in my close family though, just my grandfather but he got it at 87.

Also sometimes I had a dull pain in my chest, but I attributed it to bad breathing habits. Also I have seen a lot of breathing exercises and do them frequently so I don't think it's bad breathing technique right now (I thought it was at first and actually improved a lot when I started doing those exercises but this problem still doesn't go away.

TL;DR Starting may started having trouble breathing through my nose, sometimes I have to breathe from my mouth in order to get the necessary oxygen. I'm taking antihistamines, and flushing saline solution up my nose several times a day and it has not worked (Like two days ago my nose got clear for some minutes and was able to experience what it was like to breath again.

Sleep Disorders :: 3-6 Hours Of Sleep Until I Wake Up And Cant Go Back To Sleep

I'm 14 years old and yesterday school started after two weeks of holidays. I went to bed at 11 PM and woke up at 4 AM. I tried to go back to sleep but I just couldn't. At 6 AM I got up and got ready for school. After school I was really tired and took an hour long nap, but I was still extremely tired. I went to bed at 9 PM and fell asleep in a second. I woke up at 2:30 AM and tried my best to fall asleep, but it didn't work. Its 6 AM right now and Ive done some homework, as I couldnt do them yesterday because I was so tired. The thing is, this didn't happen in my holiday, and I get really cranky when I don't get enough sleep. Do I have insomnia?

Sleeping Trouble - Uncontrollable Vivid Thoughts When I Close My Eyes

I've been experiencing this for quite some time. the first time I noticed it was when I came home from a festival after taking ecstasy. I closed my eyes to sleep and would find myself walking through the festival as if I was there just a few hours before. i could open and close my eyes and knew the situations weren't real but they were so vivid and i had no control over what i was doing. I couldn't change the place I was or scenario or control my movements when i had my eyes closed.

I've noticed this a fair few times after taking drugs but now it has started to happen to me on nights where I'm sober (98% of the time). It could be a possibility that I stand under the speaker at work which we play music from and it is quite loud not to mention a very busy retail job in a liquor store. I come home to sleep around midnight and close my eyes and it's as if i'm in the store with no control over my actions just serving customers going about my normal shift work.

My bedroom has a few led lights that flash but I mostly cover them up with t shirts, they're from computers and such, I'm 22 years old healthy never had problems with sleep as a teenager and I've only noticed it in the last 2 years. I'm thinking it might be to do with the long exposure to loud noise since its now happening once I'm sober. when I drink alcohol I tend to pass out no problem within seconds of hitting the bed. Any ideas, theories or information on what I'm experiencing and possible causes.
