Dreams About Sickness
Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

The dream generally encompasses various physicians to midwives through to seeing hospitals.

If there were grave threats to life such as pneumonia, cancer, influenza, smallpox, diphtheria then this could create panic in your mind on waking. Often, people who have had dreams of sickness don’t really know the cause. The actual sickness does not matter too much as the dream itself remains the same interpretation for illness in dreams.
