However, at the beginning of the occurrence of the disease, due to the condition of weak stimuli, when awake, the stimulating information of the disease is quite weak, and this stimulate weak disorder can cause cerebral cortex excitability, which will appear in a dream, the emergence of various morbid horror experience.
  1. Strongly repressed emotions that happened in the day. An American psychologist has reported such an instance: A woman often dream of waves pushing her into the sea, while others are away from her, she was always stunned, and too weak to even shout ‘Help’. Psychologists investigation: The burden of the woman’s work and heavy housework, and often a strong sense of not able to achieve despite putting efforts, but do not want to ask people around for help. The sinister scene in the dream, is her life, depicting the plight of the status. Psychologists told her that as long as she can get rid of tension and sense of oppression in life, she can bid farewell to her nightmares. Dreams can not always be pleasant, some people often have nightmares.

Nightmares are just manifestations of these reasons.
