Sounds like you need to try some "Ambien CR".Of course consult a medical professional first and see if he prescribes it or something similar("Lunesta","Sonata",etc)

Or you can try this thread I believe some members in there may be able to help you,or experienced similar events(I havn't).

Do you feel very very tired after the ordeal? Like you just ran a 100 mile marathon?

I have felt quite exhausted after some of the experiences, oddly enough. On some nights the paralysis lasts for at least 10-20 minutes.

I sense a sort of frustration in your choice of words.

What would a doctor do? write on a paper that your insane? what has society ever done for someone who was "outside the box"?

You sense frustration because I am frustrated. Here we have a person who might have been convinced to find treatment or at least a proper diagnosis for his problems. Unfortunately, he sought help at ATS instead of WebMD. Now the next few years of his life are probably going to go down the toilet because of you people.

A doctor would run tests and observations on Andre to determine if he is, in fact, suffering from sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis is not insanity, and if you think it is and aren't willing to research it further then you are not denying ignorance, you are exemplifying it.

But oh well. Perhaps someday he'll realize the truth and sue the crap out of you people for prolonging his mental anguish. That's what society has done for people outside the box - it's given them the right to sue people who screw up their lives.

Again like so many nights before I reach out to confirm my sanity. Though I’m paralysed I’m able to slowly move my hands in a wave motion while trying to touch these ‘things.’

You are suffering from sleep paralysis.

Lot's of people experience this, many confuse it with alien visitations. In the past (before aliens) people thought it was due to witches and devils.

You seem to be suffering an abnormal number of incidents indicating something is wrong. Please see a doctor.

Andre are you located in Victoria? Actually do you live anywhere near Dandenong?

The reason I ask is that a month back I saw a strangely alien looking craft cruising above some houses in Dandenong at an insanely slow pace.... honestly it looked like the occupants were either 1. Checking out the view, 2. Abducting people or 3. Looking for something on the ground.

For your sake I hope your not the unlucky research specimen. LoL.

Oh and just for the record. I have had this a few times but my experinece is slightly different. I tend to have dreams within dreams. I am concious of being asleep and dreaming (very weird for starters) a lucid controlled dream. I then wake up.....only to find I'm not awake I'm still asleep. That's when a mild panic attack hits due to the paralysis but these days I know what is happening, I calm down and force myself to wake up properly. The trick is to be calm and make yourself wake up. If you panic you stay firmly sleep paralysed.

I live in Melbourne Brighton so doubt I was the victim, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a UFO although I’d like to go on one…

I have many experiences with this phenomenom. In my opinion what you are experiencing is purely and simply sleep paralysis.

Your mind is awake but your body is still in sleep. Experiencing this for the first time is scary for most people. When your body is in sleep you can expect all kinds of hallusinations. You feel like you can kind of wave your hands but you cannot move your body. You can maybe see your hands but your vision is very limited and your fingers appear black and ghost-like. Auditory hallusinations are common, nothing to fear about.

This state is cool when you learn to control it. With practise you can learn to "snap" out from this state. OR you can learn how to induce a lucid dream. Try to roll yourself and you will quickly be able to move your dream body. Your brain generates the surroundings. Surroundings are mostly black first. Perhaps you "feel" the surroundings more than see them. But keep moving, walk outside and your brain makes the surroundings more and more vivid. From this point it is possible to immerse too much in this virtual reality and forget that it is just a dream. Anyway I'd suggest that you try experiencing with this stuff, it is very fun and starts your day nicely

I have HAd That done to me over several years. I call it Lseep Paralysis also. I have seen Greys during those episodes.
But i do have something to share with you and others when that happens.
I began saying ( " GOD PLEASE HELP ME, GOD Give Me strength" )
as i was doing that i hear them chatter and hear them say in my head, " Dont say his name". It will be Ok, Stop saying his name". that is what i hear them saying. Also i begin to move my hands just like you say, in a wave motion, and then after awhile as i am still asking GOD to help me, i then began to move my shoulders and torso. My legs are still numb and paralyis. and i began combat crwling to an white light as they loked on not tryin to stop me.
So that has happen to me and that is how i beat it and after that i have never had an sleep paralyis and never seen them bastard Thanks to GOD.
Belive me or not Your call, you way of thinking and life, i just know what happen to me and how i overcame it.
Thank you

Honestly even I would put my money on sleep paralysis, the problem is I’ve witnessed the strangest of things that seem strikingly similar to abduction cases. For example in some occasions I’ve been taken through walls and from what I’ve read, abductees claimed to have also been taken through walls only to end up being examined upon.

posted on Jun, 4 2008 @ 06:00 AM
ok. get a camera, plug it into an external hard drive, and record your whole night, analyse it the next day, if no activity, then erase the hard drive for the next night.
this is a hard way of doing it but at least it will be conclusive

If its happening regularly its bound to be some sort of sleep paralysis, abduction cases don't happen every night especially to just one person unless aliens find something interesting with the victim.

Did you try dream recall like i told you in one of my other posts!?

reply to post by Ryan Lloyd

Sorry I was too distracted to do any dream recalling. I wanted to give meditation a try to see if this astral travel business is possible, sadly to no avail. Last night I read through the link – dream 1, 2 and 3. If I understand correctly I have to try to remember my dreams and write them down so I can spot connections between dreams the next morning?

Before sleep, reread your dreams from the previous (or more) night(s). This allows you to begin to connect with your dream memory, and is also an opportunity to interpret your dreams and spot connections to the day's events. Then, as you go to bed, clearly ask (rather than command) yourself to remember your dreams when you awaken in the morning or during the night, and remind yourself that it's a simple, natural process.

I believe there was an other guy on this forum that also suffered from Sleep Paralysis, but to such extent that at one point he would find himself able to move, yet the hallucinations were still there.

Also note that the "fact" that people keep saying "THEY R DEMONZZZZ" "CUZ YOU FEEL DAT STUF?!" means nothing.

For example: I have had many dreams that were as realistic, if not more realistic (if you can imagine something like that) than real life.

One dream even went to the extent of keeping the effects active during the day. Which resulted in me being the only one not bothered by the heatwave that was going on in my country at that time. :p

I would put my bet on Sleep Paralysis, just like you say you think it is.

Question though: Why does it look like you haven't gone to an actual doctor yet to tell him about your problem?

posted on Jun, 4 2008 @ 07:54 AM
This is great!

It reminds me of the two times Sleep Paralysis happened to me.

The last one I remember quite vividly. I was dreaming about walking down a dirt road in the middle of no where. I just happened to look up at the full moon when it began to turn blood red. The first thing that came to mind was, you guessed it, werewolf. I immediately woke up to find that I could only move my head. As I lay there, trying to figure out what was wrong with me, I could feel something in my room, some presence. I slowly turn my head and am scared sh*tless when I realize I am staring at a full grown werewolf sleeping in the corner of my room. Unfortunately for me, as soon as I notice it's presence, it wakes up and slowly starts walking towards me with a low pitch growl coming from his mouth

Now, this was probably the most scared I have ever been in my life, as I am trying to move and yell at it but am only able to open my mouth with no sound. I was lying there, helpless, and as the creature crept towards me I could only imagine what it's plans were for me.

Suddenly, when the thing got within a few feet of me it started to dissolve into thin air and it was at that point that I realized what was going on. I had remembered reading about SP and as soon as I came to that realization, I came out of it. Funny thing is too, i was sitting there laughing at myself for being so damn scared.

I have actually been to the doctors about this issue, they told me they couldn’t do anything. Sleep paralysis wasn’t even suggested. Although I consulted a doctor months back I guess should try again. Is there a type of specialist that deals with sleep paralysis that I can contact?

Hi Andre, just make an appointment with a general practitioner and tell him/her what you are experiencing. They will then give you a referral to a psychiatrist who will be able to prescribe some kind of medication for you.

Or, another route you can take is to make an appointment with a psychologist who will refer you to a psychiatrist if he/she thinks you would benefit from some kind of medication... just on a temporary basis to help end these night terror's you are experiencing.

Another way would be if you know someone who see's a psychiatrist on a regular basis where you could ask them if they could ask their doctor if you could make an appt. to see him.

Just saying that most psychiatrists these days require a referral .. this is how the system works in most states.

Also, if money is a issue for you... if you live near a university hospital, find out if they have a psychiatry program where they charge on a sliding scale. You will be assigned a medical school intern who is doing their psychiatry rotation to talk to. These students are, of course, supervised by Psychiatry Residents who work at the hospital. But this would be another route to go too.

PS -- Oh... I see you live in Australia. I don't know how the system works there but there are most definitely medications to help end night terrors for those who have them on a night to night basis. I would suggest you contact that psychiatrist you went to to ask him/her to refer you to a psychiatrist who specializes in sleep disorders. If he/she does not know of one then make an appt. with another psychiatrist and take it from there.

You could also view the information on this link for the Am. Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). They would be able to refer you to a sleep specialist in your area.

I have had a similar experience. This happens to me quite regularly, but usually it involves spiders or snakes. Classic night terrors. I understand that and accept it, even if its a bit embarrassing. When I go to my inlaws house, I sleep on an inflatable mattress. Many times in the morning I get the impression of something pushing down on me. Since its an inflatable mattress, it actually feels as though the mattress is compressing, like a plastic bag would if you filled it with air and squeezed it.

So I just assumed this was also night terrors, but one time I mentally decided 'what the hell?' and just let whatever was pushing down on me do what it was going to do. What happened was hard to explain, but it felt like I was pushed through the mattress. When I came through the other side, I was out of body and could see myself sleeping, and everything else in the room. I was completely lucid at this point, so I decided to go explore. When I went out in the hallway, I saw my mother in law come up and knock on the door and that is what woke me up.

So what I am suggesting is that maybe the hands holding you down are your own, and you are trying to go out-of-body. If you believe that sort of thing. I am also suggesting that when you try to 'feel' the hands and count the fingers, it is not your real hand that is doing the touching, but your astral hand.

Further, I am saying that even though it feels like you are not yet asleep when this happens, you really are asleep and just dreaming that you are not asleep. This happens to me all the time. The way I can tell is that I feel more or less rested the next day rather than how I would feel if I really only slept for like 2 hours the night before.

Suggestion: if you can touch the hands holding you down and count the fingers. Try grasping them and pulling yourself to a sitting position. It will be really hard to do, but if you can manage to sit up, see if you can turn aroudn and see if you can see your own body.

Oddly enough, my girlfriend had this happen to her a few nights over the course of about 5 years.

Originally we thought Ghosts, since her family claims the house we live in haunted. I've had a few wierd things happen to make me consider it, but nothing to serious, and probably mostly explained with some serious thought.

With the information given in this thread, I feel a bit more knowledged about Sleeo paralysis, and cataplexy. I'm sure she will too.

Just wanted to say thanks.
