Hi and welcome, to the forum.

They sound pretty horrific, are you on any new medications as I know some meds can cause nightmares.
Any extra stressors at the moment.
I have then at times if I see certain people that trigger me

How long were you on the meds for?
How regularly are you having the nightmares

I a great believer in dreams and am always researching them. The dream of beheading can mean that you’ve been thru a stressful time and had to make some choices that you now regret. I don’t know how true that is of you . I would think about what’s going on in your life and see if there’s anything you can change about it. I hope that is all this dream means

My nightmares are normally triggered by some event.
e.g if I were to see my mother (which I dont anymore)
I can also get them if I take one of my medications late in the day
Hope your nightmares settle down.
You could try avoiding anything too stimulating before bed.
Limiting coffee and tea consumption.
You could try relaxing music before bed. Lavender oil can have a calming effect. I used to get a tissue put a few drops of lavender on the tissue then put that in or under your pillow.
Not eating a too heavy meal before bed.
I find if I watch anything that has any kind of violence can cause my nightmares.
