Gena Posted December 22, 2004 Report Share Posted December 22, 2004 Okay, I was just awakened by a weird nightmare and my heart was racing. I''m okay now, but wide awake, so I thought I'd post for a while. The Klonopin I started on about 2 weeks ago seemed to help me tremendously with alleviating nightmares and heart racing in the middle of the night but not so much now. In the past whenever I had nightmares, which wasn't very often, I would never have the heart racing and sometimes arrhythmias that I get now since I've had POTS.I know I've brought this up before about nightmares, but I wanted to make a separate post to see if anyone has any good ideas on how to stop having these crazy dreams and if you go through phases of having them too. At first my nightmares were mostly about issues going on with my mom or my two brothers. But now I've been having dreams about people I don't even know and they turn into either really intense yelling/screaming situations or else it's a more typical nightmare of someone is chasing me.I don't have any fears or thoughts related to anything in my dreams during the day, so I have no idea where these crazy dreams are coming from. Has anyone had similar nightmare phases with POTS, and what can you do about them? I remember Beverly mentioning that Nicole had some nightmare phases.It's so frustrating not being able to control the subconcious at night...otherwise I'd be sleeping quite well!
