Sleep paralysis Humming, roaring, hissing, rushing, zapping, and buzzing noises are frequent in conjunction with sleep paralysis (SP). This happens when the REM atonia sets in sooner than usual, before the person is fully asleep, or persists longer than usual, after the person has (in other respects) fully awoken. Sleep paralysis is reportedly very frequent among narcoleptics. It occurs frequently in about 6% of the rest of the population, and occurs occasionally in 60%. In surveys from Canada, China, England, Japan and Nigeria, 20 to 60% of individuals reported having experienced SP at least once in their lifetime. The paralysis itself is frequently accompanied by additional phenomena. Typical examples include a feeling of being crushed or suffocated, electric "tingles" or "vibrations", imagined speech and other noises, the imagined presence of a visible or invisible entity, and sometimes intense emotion: fear or euphoria and orgasmic feelings. SP has been proposed as an explanation for at least some alien abduction experiences and shadow people hauntings.

I've suffered with sleep paralysis all my life but lastnight it was accompanied with a horrible high picthed screeching fuzzy noise hard to explain. It felt like my brain was taking electric shocks, numb yet tingly and painfull?
Is this the start of what could be an OBE? I dont think I could get passed the fear to experience it though but I would like to. Anyone with similar experiences?

That's the same with me, whenever I get SP, I always hear a very, very high pitched sound almost like a frequency as such.
I only get SP every few months, but I wish it occurred more often so I could explore with it.
