JOE MEDIA - WHAT DO OUR DREAMS REALLY MEAN

Or do you have recurring dreams that your teeth are crumbling, or that you are dying, or that you really need to pee but there is nowhere to go?

(That last one is actually very common, but people just don't admit it).

We got top psychologist and expert on dreams Ian Wallace to break down some of the most-reported recurring dreams, and explain what they mean.

Dreams are symbolic. Dreams don't often mean exactly what they seem. If you dream about being in a steamy situation with someone you would never be attracted to IRL, that doesn't mean that you secretly fancy them. And if you dream about being naked in public, you shouldn't necessarily become a nudist.

Instead, it all has to do with language and symbolism, as Ian explains.
