A recurring dream is a dream that someone repeatedly claims to have over an extended period.

A person who experiences post-traumatic stress disorder may have recurring dreams about the traumatic event.

The subjects of recurring dreams vary, and they often include events or settings from the dreamers' own experiences. The following examples are common:

  • The sensation of falling
  • Being held down or otherwise unable to move (compare sleep paralysis)
  • Nakedness in a public place
  • Being held back in school or failing a test
  • Losing teeth or the ability to speak

Like any dream, recurring dreams have invited many interpretations.
