Every night, when we go to sleep, we spend a few hours in the virtual world created by our brains, in which we are the protagonists of a story that we do not consciously create. In other words, we dream.

For most people, dreams are mostly pleasant, sometimes negative, often strange, but rarely scary. Then we remember them.

However, about 5% of people experience quite memorable and frightening nightmares (which wake you up) every week or night.

Recent research shows that Parkinson’s patients are more likely to have nightmares and nightmares than people without the disease.
