Or is it just phycoligical?

Do you have any physical evidence such as marks or bruises?  Have you ever sleep walked before?  If both are no, then it's unlikely because we normally experience a form of muscle paralysis during the REM dream stage of sleep.  You likely are safe to let go this worry, and stress management might help you with the nightmares.
