Bad Dreams Linked to Health Problems

Sunday 27th April

Bad dreams could cause multiple mental health problems including depression and anxiety, according to new research. German researchers behind the new sleep study found that people who experienced regular nightmares were up to 5 times more likely to develop a mental health problem.

Researchers at the Sleep Laboratory at the central Institute of Mental Health in Mannheim in Germany found that women were more likely than men to have more than one nightmare a week. Researchers also found that people who were unemployed or worried about their finances were also more likely to have bad or disturbing dreams.

Researchers believe that their findings show that sleep problems should be better treated in order to prevent worsening health problems.
