Why haven't I ever had a good dream?

In my entire life, I have never had a good dream (that I can remember). What can I do about this? Every morning I awake feeling like I've just endured an extremely intense work out. These nightmares terrify me and are incredibly vivid. It feels like I am dreaming all night long, without ascending and descending through all of the stages of sleep. Is it possible to get too much REM sleep? If so, what causes this? Any sort of suggestion, outside of recommending therapy (done that), would be helpful.

P.S. I grind my teeth at night, which might be relevant. And this has been occurring since childhood. Can anyone recommend a decent anxiety medication?
