    Can't sleep due to the fear of a constantly re-occurring nightmare

    I'm worried about a friend who has a re-occurring nightmare where they are being sexual assaulted, this is causing them to not be able to sleep properly.

    Unable to breath in air while sleeping

    I struggle to take in enough air while sleeping. I have not been able to sleep for 2 nights now. I often feel I will have panic attack and sleeping is now a nightmare for me.

    PTSD nightmare strategies

    My husband suffers from PTSD nightmares and I just hate sleeping next to him when he is having a really bad time, even if he takes his medicine. I want to know if there is any strategies I could use to help him calm down in his sleep, or how I could wake him up without him hitting me in his sleep. Lately he has been not getting any sleep and I want to do my best to help him.

    Can't sleep longer than 3-4 hours, feel like I awake every night from a nightmare.

    Well for the last couple of months I've been trying to sleep but I can't sleep for longer than 3 / 4 hours. and when I wake up i'm sweating, my heart is racing like I've woken up from a bad dream, but I can't remember dreaming if that makes any sense.

    Waking Up In Haze-Not Just Tired

    This is very difficult for me to explain not just because it's been an issue for 13 years, but because I have no great way of describing these symptoms. Basically, I wake up and do not feel rested. Specifically in my eyes..I have this Haze or feeling like I didn't wake up properly. It started when I was 17 and has been going on till now when I am 30. It used to go away if I took a micro-nap or fell back asleep later in the day. Also, it used to not happen when I woke up to something like....

    Average Sleep Concerns

    If you are used to getting around 3-4 hours per night of sleep, will getting a random 7 hours harm you? Could it possibly help you even if you go back to only getting 3-4 hours of sleep a night?
