The ability to fall asleep or even stay asleep can very challenging for some. Although we know we have different resources to help us deal with the complications of Insomnia, many also struggle with Night Terrors.
A night terror is a disruption that seems like a nightmare but is far more severe. People who suffer with night terrors might experience these symptoms such as suddenly sitting upright in bed, shout or scream in distress, have fast breathing and heartbeat, sweating, and an overwhelming sense of fear.
Night Terrors are caused by over-arousal of the central nervous system during sleep. During sleep you experience different stages. We have dreams or nightmares during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage. Night terrors on the other hand happen during non-REM stage.
Night Terrors aren’t considered dreams but more like a reaction of fear that happens during the transition from one sleep stage to another. People who suffer from stress, exhaustion, excessive caffeine, or is taking a new medication can be more prone to suffering night terrors.
