Violent Moving Nightmares: REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Dear MT, I have found that if I eat tamales, or watch horror movies late before bed time, I do have rough dreams. I take 1.0mg of Melatonin each night and that seems to give me the REM sleep that is needed. RW


I’ve heard works like a reset button. Never used it on myself but my grandma takes it.
She’s healthy in her 70s but suffers from mild sleep apnea.


Are these recorded and archived somewhere? I’d really like to see this one.
My mate says that although my snoring has stopped, I still thrash about in my sleep.
Apparently the hose holder is keeping my tubing and mask out of harm’s way.


Here you go, @Emmet

Hi Mother T.

I would like to revive the subject on Nightmares for those of us using CPAP/APAP machines.
Especially those repetitive nightmares which I seem to have all to often, is there anyone out there that has same.
Is there any way of improving on these nightmares?
