I recently heard about it on a biography channel special and it seems to be a serious supernatural phenomenon and I have actually experienced sleep paralysis but no old hags

It's simply a form of sleep paralysis, nothing supernatural. The name of the "syndrome" comes from the following:
"The name of the phenomenon comes from the superstitious belief that a witch - or an old hag - sits or "rides" the chest of the victims, rendering them immobile." I'm sure people today realize that no person has such power over them.
Scientists are able to explain the phenomenon. The scientific explanation is on the 2nd page of the article in my source.
