It is not well understood why people sometimes get what is called "excessive dreaming," but it's known that some people suffer from dreams that seem to last long periods of the night and are too "vivid", that is, they seem too real. This could be a result of too many details that are of high emotional significance. Scientists do not know much about how or why we dream. Sigmund Freud believed dreaming was a "safety valve" for unconscious desires. Usually there is no clinical abnormality in people who have either excessive dreams or vivid dreams; and there is no specific effective treatment.
