Dear lybrate-user, Are you screaming or kicking or walking or waking up during the nightmares? If not, they are just dreams. Does not need any major treatment. In shift workers, the circadian rhythm gets disturbed. The sleep wake cycle is also disturbed. So you may be waking up during dream stage of sleep. That is why, you remember the dream and worry about them. Try and find a day shift job. Or try to go to bed at the same time on all days whether week day or week end. Sleep during the day, in a dark room or eyes covered by a cloth. If it bothers your day time activities, please consult a psychiatrist. She/he may prescribe a tablet called Melatonin, a circadian rhythm hormone.

C) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping… Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result.

General Physician,
How To Get Better Sleep?

Are you experiencing problems in sleeping like ? not able to sleep or wake up at the desired time or frequently waking up at night? The best reason might be that you are not following the basic guidelines for healthy sleep. Here, we explain you basic healthy sleep tips. These tips are for typical adults who are facing difficulty in sleeping. In case of children or those suffering from certain sleep disorders we suggest consulting sleep experts to get treated properly.
Maintain Regular Sleep Schedule
The sleep and wake cycle is regulated by ?circadian clock? in the brain. Maintaining a regular waking time strengthens this circadian clock, and helps get sleep at proper time in night. So, maintain a regular sleeping schedule, even during weekends when there is a temptation to sleep more.

Relax Before Going to Bed
It is important that you go to bed with a relaxed and stress-free mind. Avoid stressful activities like playing video games and working with your PC, right before going to bed. Instead, develop relaxing routines like listening to soothing music and reading an interesting book before going to bed. You can learn relaxation therapy from a professional, and practice it before going to sleep. Make sure there is no bright light in your bedroom as it can signal your neurons that it is time to be awake not to sleep.
Create Sleep-Friendly Environment
Make sure that your bedroom has sleep-friendly environment ? slightly cool temperature, dark, noise-free and comfortable. You can also take help of earplugs, eye shades, air conditioner, and other devices.
Finish Dinner Early
Eating or drinking too much before going to bed may disturb your sleep. Avoid taking a heavy meal too close to bedtime. Don?t eat spicy foods as they can cause heartburn, and make it difficult falling asleep. Don?t take fluids close to bedtime as it can cause nighttime awakenings to go to the toilet. Drinking milk or herbal, non-caffeinated teas can be part of a healthy bedtime routine.

Exercise Regularly
Exercising regularly helps you get sound sleep. However, exercising before your bedtime is not helpful. When you exercise your body temperature increases, and it takes few hours for the body temperature to come to normal levels enabling sleep onset. Finish your exercise routine at least three hours before our bedtime. Exercising during late afternoon is best.
Avoid Caffeine Products Close to Bedtime
When you take caffeine products like coffee, tea, chocolate and colas, the effect of caffeine in it remain for 3 to 5 hours. In case of some the effects will be up to 12 hours later. Avoid taking caffeine products before 6-8 hours of bedtime, to improve sleep quality.
Stop Smoking and Drinking
Nicotine in cigarettes is a stimulant. When one smokes before sleep he suffers from various nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Smoking can cause irregular sleep routines and nightmares. Many people think that alcohol acts as sedative and helps get good night sleep. In fact, alcohol causes restless sleep. Avoid alcohol consumption. Take the help of a de-addiction professional if you find it difficult.
Maintain a Sleep Diary
If you are suffering from any sleep disorders, you are suggested to maintain a sleep diary and note down your sleeping routines. This helps your sleep expert understand your sleeping patterns, make a proper diagnosis and suggest the right solutions.

Hi lybrate user, it would be nice to get more information such as headache causing sleep disturbance or sleep disturbance causing headache. If reason is headache than consult pain specialist for proper evaluation and treatment and if reason is sleep disturbance then kindly consult neurologist to find out the reason and eliminate it.

Your sleep disturbance needs to be evaluated, you need to be taught sleep hygiene, if no results you may need not sleeping pills, but some pills which promote sleep naturally increasing sleep neurotransmitters, like melatonin. One needs to sleep between 6 and 10 hours average is 8 hours, surely you are way down, get checked

Set a routine: Try to go to sleep and wake up at about the same time every day. This resets your circadian rhythm and helps developing your sleeping pattern. 2. At least 30 minutes of workout is important for every individual. Go for walks, go to the gym, take up yoga or aerobics - regardless of the kind of exercise you are doing. When the body gets exercise, so does the brain and you are refreshed to take on the rest of the day. 3. Go to bed gadget free: Keep your books, mobile, tab, laptop and TV remote away from the bed. Stay calm and do not have heated conversations. Your nerves need calm down as you to sleep. 4. Get enough sleep: Ensure you sleep enough every night so that it doesn?t ruin your day. Night time sleep is important and adults need seven to nine hours of sleep. 5. Set consistent, healthy mealtimes: Regular mealtimes, eating a healthy breakfast and lunch on time prevents energy deficits during the day that will help you get rid of daytime sleepiness 6. Avoid alcohol: Having alcohol in high amount may hamper your regular sleeping pattern and you may be sleepy the whole day. 7.Avoid Self-Medication: Avoid taking sleeping pills or over the counter the drugs. There are different kinds of drugs available in the market. Some may make you sleepy the whole day due to hangover effect of the drug.
