I'm not on abx right now, but I'm not symptom

free. I sleep a lot, and it seems like I dream

constantly when I'm asleep. My husband says I

also moan and groan and sometimes scream in my

sleep. Just wondering if anyone knows if

dreaming a lot is symptomatic of any certain

infection or just something I have going on.

intense dreaming can be a sign of depression and anxiety. Have you ever dreamt like this before? If you have, it could be just be another cycle.

I did read somewhere that Babesea can trigger heavy dreaming, associated with night sweats and fevers.

Dreaming is a certain stage of sleep, associated with brain wave patterns. If lyme is in the brain, it could affect those patterns.

There are also several sleep disorders that trigger dreaming..

Do you h ave a LLMD? I'd ask them...

I associate this with babs.

When I was in a flare up of symptoms or a relapse, or even treating it with Mepron etc - the dreams were intense.

Long, drawn out, detailed dreams, very vivid.

I would also talk, mumble, scream and even cry in my sleep.

There are other issues that can cause this, obviously, this is just my experience.

I have vivid dreams as well--had one again last night.

LLMD isn't sure if I have babs, but I do have Lyme and Ehrlichia.

I learned the true nature of night terrors before being aggressively treated with ABX - horrible violent dreams that haunted me all day.

I have only just started to be aware of my dreams again whilst on AI drops...for quite some years before this, I had no memory of dreaming at all, as if my brain were clogged up.

I did that when I was first starting treatment.
Some nites it felt like I was watching a constant

streaming of history go by. Others it was random but contant, bam, bam, bam. I got over it further in treatment.

Dreams/nightmares happen w/Ld especially when herxing.

Also, they are much worse if you are on a lot of B6. B6 is good and essential to take, but doctor's will tell you if you don't dream take b6, it also can cause too much dreaming.

I have been herxing off Flagyl when i began treatment 4 days ago. I had a very long extended dream 2 nites ago--it takes 10 minutes to explain (that's how long it was)and it was very clear and vivid. I also for the first time, had night sweats all 4 nights in a row. This makes me think that Flagyl is killing the Bb but now Babesia is coming out "to play."

I wasnt sure i had Babesia until NOW.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I guess

unusual amount of dreams can have different

causes. I finally realized the cause of mine is

withdrawal from Cymbalta. I have been trying to

wean myself off it, and I didnt realize until I

did some research that it can cause this. I'm

also having more anxiety and more sweating, and

trouble getting to sleep.

I'll be glad when the withdrawal symptoms stop.

Hope it doesn't take too long.

I just had a dream the other night that had something to do with having Lyme.

I dreamed I was preaching at a new church, and during the opening hymn a girl came up for prayer and told me she was having all sorts of weird symptoms, but the docs couldn't tell her what's wrong.

I told her to see me after the sermon because I thought she had Lyme just like me and I would give her the name of my LLMD.

It really sucks when you can't even get away from it in your dreams.
