So I've been waking up from nightmares a few times a month by screaming out loud...

It doesn't actually bother me much -- as soon as I'm awake, I'm no longer scared and can usually go right back to sleep. However, my girlfriend would appreciate very much not to be regularly woken by someone screaming. :-)
In the dreams, I'm usually about to be killed by someone (methods vary) and I can't get away. So I scream.
It's only been going on for a few months and I can't think of anything new in my life which could be causing it. Also, I'm not the type of person to worry about getting killed in my waking life. In fact, I haven't been significantly worried about anything lately.
