Nightmares

I had a terrible migraine yesterday – the pain’s not so bad because I have the right meds, but I could barely stay conscious all day and was dizzy – I felt like I was on a ship in rough seas. I had to go to bed right after work, that often happens with my migraines. I was awoken by the worst nightmare. It was terrifying. I even scared my dog who was panting next to me in the bed for fear. I got up and tried to calm down, but I was on high alert. I rarely get nightmares, except when I get migraines. Does anyone else have the migraine/nightmare connection? It makes sense as migraines coincide with a drop in serotonin.
