Why is it that all of a sudden I have started having night terrors. I have always been the sort of person who could deal with the normal nightmares. I have always been able to wake myself up from these. But now I am having night terrors. Last night I had two !!! It is getting to the stage where I am frightened to go to sleep. My night terrors always follow a similar pattern, feeling there is someone or something in the room with me, unable to move, then feeling something pushing down on me (sort of bouncing me on the bed). It might sound funny, but it is scaring the life out of me. Is there anything I can do to to stop having these ?
