I would like to follow on from this excellent thread regarding sleep paralysis.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I would be very grateful if the participants of that thread could help me with my research on this subject.

All I need is the answer to one or two simple questions .

1: When you experienced sleep paralysis , was it before sleeping or upon wakening ?

2: Were you always in the same position ( ie, lay on your back or on your side ) when it occured ?

There is a third question that i have added as an afterthought

3: Have you ever been Diagnosed as Narcoleptic ?

Many thanks in advance.

Personally;

1.) Before falling asleep and Lucid dreaming

2.) Depends on the position I was lying in, hence the term paralysis
But usually on my side (that's how I sleep)

Many thanks , Kron .
There is a misconception among researchers that sleep paralysis only happens when a person is lay on their backs .

1) upon waking in the middle of the night

2) I tend to get it when I am on my back but I don't like to hang around for long as I am sure many of you know what can happen from sleep paralysis

The few times that I experienced it I was on my back. I was neither asleep nor awake. The strange thing is that I knew that I was partially awake, but I could not move. I remember trying to will myself to move an arm, and a leg. I was not able to.

I've suffered with this for many years. I've had it happen multiple times during the night. It usually occurs as I am waking up. It usually happens to me when I sleep on my back. However, it has happened while sleeping in other positions.

My pleasure.

That's certainly a misconception, I very rarely sleep on my back and even so always manage to turn over in my sleep so yeah the researchers are incorrect on that one.

Can I just clarify one thing ?
When u experience sleep paralysis , are you waking from a sleep or do you experience it before sleep ?

Cheers

First time it occurred I was just waking and on my back, the second time it occured I was also just waking and was actually in a sitting position on my bed, back against the . board, it was how i fell asleep and woke up. I have never had an issue with narcolepsy in fact its the opposite im an insomniac and get sleep paralysis usually after a lengthy episode of insomnia.

Edit: every other occurrence is kind of a blur, usually im on my back or side, and its only been once when i was going into sleep, all the other times it was coming out of sleep.

1. Happened while waking in the middle of the night....

2. Happened while I was laying on my stomach on the opposite side of the bed I usually sleep...

3. No never bothered to check because it only ever happened to me once and the experience I had was scary as hell............

When it happened to me (a few times) I would have it again as soon as I tried to go back to sleep. Took every ounce in my being to move it seemed. Scary stuff. Cant remember what position. Back yes, side also I believe (when I tried to go back to sleep)

I have experienced this as far back as I can remember. About once a month on average. I cant see any real pattern apart from the fact it occurs when I am tired. Unfortunately I am always tired.

There seems to be no correlation to sleeping position as far as I or my historical partners could discern.

oh and just to answer your update no I have never been diagnosed as a narcoleptic

what are you trying to obtain from this research if you don't mind me asking? a method to achieve sleep paralysis or is it for another reason?

I hoping to disprove a lot of common misconceptions regarding this phenomina.
Did you know for instance that some of the main causes according to certain research are ....alchahol abuse , depression , sleeping position , mild schitzophrenia and narcolepsy ?
