Patient : Over the past few months I have noticed a large increase in the number of nightmares I have been having, as well as an increase in the intensity of them. It has got to the point where I am afraid to go to sleep as they are more realistic then I have experienced before and when I am asleep and in a nightmare I can not wake up till my alarm goes off in the mourning. I go to bed and wake up roughly the same time everyday and I do not drink alcohol.
