Dying from your nightmares
Can You Really Die in Your Nightmares? Well lets take a look at sudden unexpected nocturnal death syndrome SUNDS

In SUNDS, which is genetic disease, the body fails to properly coordinate the electrical signals that cause the heart to beat. The disease primarily strikes young adult men, especially those of Southeast Asian descent.

“The heart can be normal for quite some time, and then it may stop unexpectedly,” “Usually, the heart stops at night, and in Southeast Asia it once caused more deaths amongst young males than car accidents.”

There have been some theories that link the onset of SUNDS to the stress caused by nightmares, but no scientific studies have shown a correlation between SUNDS deaths and the content of dreams.

Something to think about as you go to bed tonight.

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

RE: Dying from your nightmares
There has to be something other than dying in dreams or nightmares that cause people to die in their sleep. It makes sense that there is an underlying medical condition.

Interesting article. I didn't know SUNDS was the inspiration for one of my favorite classic horror films. (Classic insofar as it was one of the iconic films made in my lifetime.)

RE: Dying from your nightmares
I had a recurring dream that always ended in the collapse of a tall building I was in. I would wake as the building was collapsing. I was always aware that I was in a dream.Then one night (the last time I can recall having the dream), I decided to follow through and if it killed me then so be it. It very obviously did not. I crashed to the ground and died. The dream was done and then I was in a different dream.

RE: Dying from your nightmares
I am not sure how you would prove that nightmares do or do not cause any deaths. As how would you know they were having a nightmare at the time of death?
Maybe on a very few occasions a partner would know, due to talking or movement. But mostly unless you had a brain scan in action at the time of death. There is no way of knowing.
However did you know that weekend headaches are the most common? The release of tension is one of the big causes of these & they follow tension, rather than occur during it.
As we relax we can get all sorts of issues.
For example how many of us have never been ill on a day off or during a holiday from work.
As we relax our vital organs relax too. Our breathing becomes slower, our heart beats slower.
I have always thought of sleep into death as being a very natural & normal step.

We all believe in something greater than ourselves. Even if it's just the blind forces of chance. Ambassador G'Kar.
