I’ve had it a lot too. It is so scary specially when you’re sleeping in complete darkness. Recently I’ve been taking magnesium to help me relax to fall asleep and one time I took 2. I went to sleep around 1:30 am and I think about 15 minutes late it started to happen gradually but fast. It feels like forever though. My mind started to wake up and I was just thinking but asleep, and that happens to me a lot but not as often as full blown sleep paralysis. Anyway, I was able to open my eyes at one… Read more »

My advice is to not sleep facing up or on your back side. If you end up paralyzed, try sticking your tongue out, that helps too. For me it does. That’s about it. I hope you get a good night sleep.

It’s pretty scary. It’s called sleep paralysis, I have it too. But I really haven’t really found any legit answer but just try not to sleep facing up. I also get them when I fall asleep facing up. And yeah you can have multiply nightmares in 1 DAY. will keep u posted if I find anything out too

Oh, for gods sake. You most likely have a mineral deficiency caused by some other illness or environmental sensitivity. Please see a holistic or integrative medicine doctor who can check your overall health and don’t focus too much on chasing the symptoms. Also, please check your environment as many people have bizarre symptoms at night and morning because they are sleeping in an environment with heavy allergens or molds and they get chronically ill from this with all sorts of disparate symptoms. Any and all of these things tax the body and cause imbalances in minerals and energies and result… Read more »

I was told what is happening during this time is that your spirit left your body, it usually does when we are sleep so we wont panic, like you have because you don’t know what is going on. On ‘its’ way back into your body your physical body senses someone in the room, even though it is you. You then have a startled reaction, only to find that you can not express the reaction because it feels like someone is sitting on your chest and holding your limbs down. I use to have this happen all the time then it… Read more »

I used to get it quite regularly and it is, indeed, frightening.

While you are asleep your body turns off the muscles (so that if you dream you are running, you don’t actually start running).
Usually when you wake up, your muscles switch back on as well. Sometimes though, you will wake up and your muscles stay switched off – and that’s sleep paralysis.

It has nothing to do with God (or anything else supernatural)

See a doctor.

I’ve suffered a lot from this too. My body totally paralysed, unable to breathe, until by sheer force of will I move my legs, little by little, more and more until my body wakes up too and I gulp for air . BL, above is right, it does not happen if you sleep on your side but sometimes you turn on your back in your sleep. I have not had an attack since I lost weight about a year ago so I’m guessing you need to diet too.

I had a period in puberty when I had frequent episodes. You would do well to see a doctor and explain it to him – see where you go from there.

Sounds weird. I used to have dreams where I thought I was awake. So in the dream I would make myself wake up, then I thought I was awake but I wasn’t. You can tell if you are awake, you can go to the bathroom. If not you are still sleeping. What is your heart rate at bedtime laying down? It should be close to 64. If not you may need medication. I have to take atenolol to block adrenalin. If I take too much I get horrible nightmares, I think it is cortisone compensating for too little adrenaline. Also… Read more »

Personally, I stopped having them when I started sleeping sideways or face down. I will always get it if I sleep face up.

Try it.

You should see a psychologist or a psychiatrist. Hypnotherapy might be useful.
