The old hag, sleep paralysis?

- Advertisement -

Okay so a few months ago, this year i experienced something weird. Once i woke up and i was completely paralyzed. it felt like i was being restricted. i could see everything around me tho. So i was freakin out and i didn’t know what was going on, & i was trying to scream but i couldn’t make any noise, then i have no memory of how i fell back asleep, i guess i blacked out and then woke up later. I wasn’t sure if it was a dream because it felt real! and my mom and friends just thot i was crazy.
so a few weeks later it happened again, same as the first time, still scary. then about a mont later it happened AGAIN. except this time my tv was on, i could hear and see it so i was sure i wasn’t dreaming. and i saw the time, it was like 3:33am. i was freakin out, and then i got a few of my fingers to move. i tried taping on my bed frame, for wat seemed like FOREVER, but it wasn’t loud enuf. & then i blacked out and woke up at like 3:35am….only a couple minutes later.
& whenever it happens its usually when i go to bed sad, upset, or mad.
any help or give answers? can someone relate?

it’s the hag syndrome.
long ago people called it that because they imaged a hag on top of them when it happened.
scientists are not sure why it happens but i think it has to do with the physogical mind.
why don’t relax before going to bed?

Welcome to post Sleep paralysis.
This happens when your eyes are awake but you ARNT awake. You might want to set and alarm to 3 Am to wake up you even if its for a minute..
So anyway its like this
Its like Your brain is sleeping but your eyes are awake and you can BARLEY move your muscles. You can wake up with a sound, a nudge. or even better if you Try to move your arm REALLY hard you might wake up..
Its very annoying and you wont die. Eventually the light will wake you up. This usally happens if you sleep wrong or if you go to bed Badly.
I have this occasionally i have to ask a friend to nudge me.

Alarms are the best way to live with this you might consider seeing a pyscoligst

Hi, don’t worry. I get sleep paralysis very often — most of time when I think too much about work before I go to sleep.
Seems like our brain is still pretty much active (or has woken up), although the rest of our body is still sleeping (i.e. inactive state).
Another explanation is that the sleep paralysis is actually a dream which seems too real. There are times when I experience sleep paralysis with my surroundings being rather noisy. However, I struggled to wake up only to realize that everything is only a dream as my surroundings was very quiet — Very unlike what I had experienced during my sleep.
I tried relaxing, and clearing my mind up with some meditation. It works and helps to prevent sleep paralysis from happening again on the same night.
Read this, it is rather useful:

I get it all the time. for over 30 years. It happens to me when I am on my stomach. I know when it is going to happen, because I get this filling. I can feel this “blackness” over me. Then it feels like someone is pulling a sheet over me. I can’t move after that. I start to yell for help, but nothing comes out. I can’t move. I fell if I don’t keep trying to move, I will die. So I keep trying. I have now learned to just try and move one finger. As soon as it moves, I can feel the “darkness” going away. I feel the sheet being pulled off of my body. Like it is being pulled from under the foot of my bed. I can now move and talk. I was always told the story of the old hag, but never believed it. I just knew it was sleep paralysis. I can never see what is going on, because it only happens to me when I am on my stomach. But this one time, as soon as I could move, I turned around to see these four figures walking away from my bed. There were three small fat ones, and one tall thin one. They all had hooded clocks on. I could not see what they looked like, because they were walking away from me. When they got to the door, the room started to stretch out. The farther they got, the more they faded away. As soon as they were gone, the room snapped back. It has happened several times after that. I still get the sheet being pulled over my head feeling. But now when it is over, I don’t turn to look. I just keep my eyes closed just a little longer, just in case those four things are still there. I don’t know what they were, and I don’t want to know. I do know that you get sleep paralysis so you don’t get hurt when you are asleep. It is the way your body protects its self. But why do some people see things. I know I saw what I saw. I just never want to see it again.
