Just a dream
Many people experience nightmares and night terrors. What’s the difference between the two?
According to the Mayo Clinic:
Sleep terrors differ from nightmares. The dreamer of a nightmare wakes up from the dream and may remember, but a person who has a sleep terror episode remains asleep.
During a sleep terror episode, a person might:
Sit up in bed
Scream or shout
Kick and Sweat, breathe heavily and have a racing pulse
Be hard to awaken, but if awakened be confused
Get out of bed and run around the house
Engage in aggressive behavior

Have you ever woken up screaming in the middle of the night?
Did you remember what you were dreaming about?
Looking forward to your comments!
