    Yes nightmares are a symptom of anxiety.

    Aniety causes nightmares,nightmare cause anxiety!!!!!

    Its a vicious cycle.

    Sometimes meds can cause them as well, I know when I took zopiclon

    years ago its gave me awful night terrors

    Anxiety sucks,we just have to try and stay stong,though its hard sometimesbiggrin

    Yes Shaman it is anxiety related i use to have really bad nightmares where i woke up having a panic attack 

    There are times I wake up from a really deep sleep with my heart racing because i woke up to fast and that scares me too. 

    It will go away just do deep breathing to help your anxieties when you wake up with these nightmares
