Except for the fear of the unknown.

To be honest, I'm far more creeped out when I can faintly see what's on the room. I can't sleep with night lights.
I bet the unknown won't be able to see either anyway.

Meowph, that's right!

Oh look! A Morphloggery.

I've always been afraid of the unknown, so I usually sleep with a nightlight.

Anyways, nightlights and sound, like a fan or even one of those sound machine things, should help.
Also, a great way to prevent nightmares is to not fill your brain with scary stuff. I'm not sure how many horror movies/games/books you watch/play/read, but if nightmares are really bothering you, definitely consider putting those things on hold.

Cringing is really fun.

I have nothing but empty space in my dreams. I haven't had a real dream since second grade. But I never have trouble sleeping, probably because I have an alarm clock with a sound function, so I rest peacefully each night with the sweet serenade of the ocean's sound.

If solutions like a night light or soothing background noise don't help, I agree that you should consider a deeper psychological cause for your nightmares — in which case, don't be afraid to go to counselling! But depending on the severity of your breathlessness upon waking, a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea could also be the culprit. If you regularly experience daytime sleepiness even after getting a normal sleep, a talk with your doctor or a sleep study might be in order.

Whatever's going on, rest assured that you have many options to get help! But I hope it's something simple; maybe it'll just pass in time.

Don't eat right before you go to bed, especially not bread or cake.

Also, stay the hell out of that 'a bug just flew into my ear' thread. D: D: D: D: D:

While I agree that it isn't a good idea to eat something sugary before bed, in my case I usually have a better time sleeping if I do have a full stomach beforehand. Otherwise I get hungry in the middle of the night and raid the fridge.

I would recommend starting a dream journal. It makes it easier to remember your dreams, that knowing what your nightmares are about is helpful.

I used to suffer from horrible assimilation nightmares. Twice a week, I'd have all these different scary scenarios about being assimilated by something and not being able to help it. I went to see a therapist, and dealt with the underlying issue. I have not had one since!
