      Since my tinnitus started not one night has gone by that I didn't dream vividly... Is this the same for anyone? I wake up feeling unrefreshed

      I don't often remember my dreams, but when I do T is present in them...

      This shit is so intrusive it even invades my dreams.

      My dreams have become extremely vivid since I started losing the low end of my hearing and getting a roaring sound. I also have an unusually good ability to remember them (not so unlike me pre-T, but usually they are gone by the time I wake up).
      It's very sad as I am always living life far better in my dreams than in real life :/, which may well be one of the reasons why my body has made an effort to make them extraordinary. Always able to do so much with my body/ears.
      But my god, I am able to pick out smells pretty well, feel every single texture I put my hands on, hear everything going around in my environment (but I am still wise enough to plug my ears or wear earplugs when it is too loud lol), and of course colors are unusually vivid.

      I think the difference is pre t we could relax but we can no longer relax like we did.
      Unfortunatly when I do dream I dream about
      My life before t, I was a car guy and loved my fast loud cars. Loud music at work etc (not crazy loud and this did not cause my nightmare)
      Just my fun carefree life before T that I took for granted ffs.

      That would essentially sum of the content of my dreams. The longing of a life one used to have.

      Yes, it is from anxiety not tinnitus. Cure your depression and anxiety and you won't care about your tinnitus.

      I no longer have anxiety over the t, it's the depression and lack of sleep because of the ringing that stops me from relaxing and generally being totally fucked off with life now.

      I dream every night. Always have. Multiple times a night as well. Never had T in my dreams. Part of the reason I enjoy sleeping so much.

      I dream but T is never part of it. Thank goodness for that. At least I can dream in peace!

      I do. When I was taking Clonazepam regularly the dreams were incredible. Still pretty vivid since stopping, and yet strangely neutral...neither good nor bad. great colours and graphics, random plot.

      Hmm what a coincidence, yesterday I also thought about starting such topic.
      Cause I wondered if there tinnitus is present in your dreams. As I can see, it varies from person to person...

      So, there is no T in my dreams. Maybe only two or three times it happened. I can remember my dreams well, I often record it so I am somehow trained to remember.
      My dreams are quite neutral, strange, sometimes nightmares, sometimes depressive (for example I am thinking in a dream - realise that my life is totally fucked up and starting to cry... then I wake up).

      When my T started the thing I missed most was dreams as I was having great difficulty sleeping. Now my sleeping is a bit better and I have welcomed dreams back. I do sometimes have dreams with T in them but mostly not. I am thankful for dreams as they are a welcome escape from reality. Dream on!

      I dream every night. Lately I have been having these nightmares of real loud sounds... Last night I dreamed about using power tools (chain etc) without ear muffs. Hurt my ears in the dream lol.

      Last week I dreamed about someone shouting into my ear,
      and real loud music without being able to shut it down,
      and loud trains going like a few feet next to me.

      I wish I knew how to stop the nightmares.

      Everybody does, only some remeber it , others don't. I surely dream every night, but my dreams are not more vivid than before T. Since T is related to brain acitivity as well as dreams , no wonder there may be a link ..T is very rarely present in my dreams, happened once or twice maybe..

      I remember when I was on mirtazapine (Remeron), I had some nice, I'd call them "neutral" but interesting dreams every single night. It was rather peculiar.
      Now that I'm off it, I don't really dream so I've lost my "sleep cinema". Kinda sad but whatever.

      I also have vivid dreams everynight since my T started, but I rather associate it with antianxiety medications I take to go through the day. But in fact I like this side effect.

      The shitty thing when T is in your dreams is that when you wake up, you say : "Oh ok, that was just a nightmare. Oh, wait, no, I have T too in real life" :banghead:

      I dream vividly. Oddly, always of a goddess blowing in my ear which sounds like hissing. ;)
      Truth is, T is never part of my dreams. Also, I don't have much trouble falling asleep...no masking...sometimes my T is semi loud. When I wake up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, I am always surprised that my T is there so profoundly. Then I fall back asleep without issue. My dreams range from great to a bit scary or unsettling.
      When I wake up in the morning, I am always surprised my T is there. I get a reprieve through the night and my T tends to be a bit pronounced when I wake up...and then typically fades a bit in the morning as I become immersed in daily activity.
      As the world turns. :)

      I developed T a few weeks ago, unsure if the dreams started first or if the T did. But I have been having very vivid dreams and nightmares over the last few weeks. I wonder what the correlation is?

      To me...pure speculation...only correlation is...your T interrupts your consciousness to the point where you recognize and remember your dreams and nightmares whereas they went unrecognized before. Also, quite possible your T has changed your emotional level that is influencing your propensity to dream and/or remember them as well.

      I too have extremely vivid dreams every night . I need only drop off for a few seconds and i have dreams that seem to last hours ! Some of my dreams are so intense and detailed that later on i sometimes cannot remember what was real and what was dream . Most of my dreams involve bad stuff . I often dream of my dad who died 25 years ago of cancer and wake up crying.

      Like some others here, I dream very frequently -- often vivid, really amazing dreams. I love them! I have been this way, on and off, throughout my life. Sometimes my dreams are terrifying but often they are interesting stories, with plots and characters. I hate waking up before they are finished, as I never find out how the story ends.

      I think that dreams often correlate with how deeply you sleep and agree with the @stophiss theory.
      Tinnitus only truly invaded my dreams once, very shortly after onset -- it was a very scary feeling. Fortunately has not happened since.

      Oh, and melatonin gives me dreams that are like bad acid trips.

      It's normal to dream every night. The tinnitus probably keeps you from going into a really deep REM sleep, and so you got a bit of lucid dreaming going on. Maybe have some fun with it and learn how to control your lucid dreams? Have some sex with a hot ex or something ;) haha
