Hi, i am a regular experiencer of sleep paralysis.
My very first one was the most bizzare, i almost wanted to call it a near death experience because at the time i thought i was dead.
When i explained it to the doctor he said that waking up but not being able to move is sleep paralysis. I dont know, because that first experience was
different to the others.
The other ones, and they happen usually every few months, but when they happen they will happen maybe twice in a night or a few nights in a row,
consist of me waking up about 2am, and im frozen almost like in a trance/ dream like state, i want to speak or move, and i cant, i feel this massive
force holding me down, almost like a ton of bricks, and i`m fighting it mentally, and then a few seconds later it goes and i am able to move.
Does anyone else have similar experiences?
My doctor is useless, as when i was there today and asking him about a few things, one of them being the sleep paralysis which i seem to be
experiencing regularly again, he just looked at me blankly as if he didnt even know what sleep paralysis was, and then carried on talking about my
Ugh, i do not know what to say, i mean if sleep paralysis is purely a mental or sleep deprived condition, then what about the very first time it
happened where i was out of my body falling into my body. And why do i feel myself pinned down.
Really hoping some people who have experienced similar things can reply.
