I am suffering from nightmares, sleeping disorder and one sided headache especialiy while reading or watching TV.
Can this be due to glaucoma? I did not check it with a doctor yet.
Nightmares indicate an anxiety disorder.
If you have flashbacks, anxiety attacks associated with the nightmares and if they are related to past abuse that you have been subjected to then you might be suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
