I have nightmares or very unpleasant dreams every night. Sometimes I remember bits of what I dreamt about, other times nothing. When I get up at night (to take care of my baby) and when I get up in the morning my body feels stiff and I'm usually in more pain then I am during the day. I think the two are connected. I would like to be able to be more relaxed during the night. I have tried relaxing exercises and they help me to relax and fall asleep. It's after I've fallen asleep that my subconscious seems to take over and things get worse. Has anybody got any tips for me on how to get my brain to stop scaring me at night?
