Can somebody help me?
I have had two "episodes", I guess you could call them that, wherein I am lying in bed just about to fall asleep and something happens. I'm not sure if these are dreams, or a phsychological phenomenon.
The first time, months ago, I saw a bright light through the blinds in my window, the room kind of shifts(like when you're drunk), and a feeling of paralysis came over me. I could kind of move(twitch, move eyes/mouth), but I can't speak, yell, or do anything else. My girlfriend was next to me, and I could see her move and look at me when I tensed/paniced. When she shook me I snapped out of it.
The second time, last night, the same thing happened. The room shifted, but there was no light. This time there was a buzzing sound, accompanied by that tingly sensation you get when your are/leg falls asleep.(only all over my body) This time my girlfriend was not there. My eyes were open, and I could've swore I slowly rolled myself off the bed(to shock myself out of it), but just as I hit the floor(and I felt it, I think) my eyes opened again and I was still in the bed, parylized. It faded out after a while, but the tingly sensation stayed for a few moments.
The first time my girlfriend says my eyes were open, and I swear they were the second time too. I was starting to think the first one might have been a dream/hallucination when I was in that state right before sleep, but after a second one, I think I may need some help.
Any thoughts guys & gals? I really need some on this one. Or could someone at least point me in the direction of a professional who can help.(e-mail address, phone #, mailing address)
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
