Bad Stomach Problems and Nightmares

Think there's a correlation?

Whether you think it's fact or myth, some people claim that sleeping on a full stomach can cause nightmares.

Personally, I've experienced this every now and then. Not because of a full stomach but because of high acid levels on my stomach. I'm no doctor, but I'm guessing that the acid is what triggers the nightmares indirectly. Acid = pain which then translates somehow into your subconscious and manifests itself as a dream.

This would make sense since sleeping with a full stomach also causes acid reflux. This article explains how a full stomach causes acid reflux and indigestion.
