  • I used to have it a lot in my early to middle 20's.

    I am not sure when the last instance of it has been. I've even had a few cases of it as recently as a couple years ago.

    The last instance I can remember, I was being spoken to telepathically by the Independence Day Alien, and it spoke the words, "Aliens are destroying your people."

    I think it was referring to "Illegal Aliens" even though I saw a space alien character from a movie.

      Correction.

      There was another one a few months ago, but what happened there is too convoluted and personal to talk about I guess.

    • 3mo

      To clarify how this works for me:

      Some of these are bad dreams about bad things, some are good dreams about bad things, and some are good dreams about good things.

      Sometimes they are prophetic.

      Sometimes they are lies.

      Sometimes they are truths.

      Not everything that is uncomfortable is bad or evil, nor is everything that feels good truly good.

  • Yes but then again I have traumatic brain Injury and have had three past strokes from brain aneurysms. I've also had spinal injury and had major back surgeries as well as been in and out of a wheelchair more than once. So for me it is freaky but to be occasionally expected. Last Night though I had the opposite. I was sleeping my fire alarm went off. I went to get up and suddenly a crackle I heard and searing pain. But I made myself get up, and get out of the house. Luckily it was a false alarm.

    There are a few other medical conditions that can cause this problem. Some bug bites or ticks can cause it, a few neurological conditions, and a problem with head injury of some sort. Only way to know for sure is to go see your doctor and have them run some tests. Normal healthy people shouldn't be having this problem. Though in rare cases a psychological state can induce this. Also at least one date rape drug can cause this. If you have weird memory or aren't sure ask your doctor to run a test for it if it is still close to when you experienced the paralysis. The date rape drug in question is normally an anesthetic and it can also cause memory loss as well as full body paralysis. But generally you still feel touch but can't speak or move. Most people almost feel like they are in a dream. Unlike chloroform which you may loose some memory but it makes you feel like vomiting or dizziness and a messed up sense of smell sometimes. Special K (ketamine) may cause some of these symptoms.

  • yes I do. usually when I am in the car sleeping though. I think it is because the car is a little bit uncomfortable to fall asleep and so it is easier to access that state where your mind has paralyzed your body but you are still aware all the things going on around you

  • OMG!! I think so, @gingerbread1995, and there is Nothing worse than This here, dear.
    I will be almost "Half awake" and as I Try to Open my eyes, I can't. As I "Fight" to even Move, I can't and it "Hurts" to Force myself to Open my eyes and Move my own head, to the Point... Where I have Already told my Brain I am having a Heart attack and that I probably will Die.
    It usually Happens if I am taking a Cat nap. However, not when I am in for a Long nite's Sleep.
    Good luck and Great question. xx

  • Yes, everyone does. Your brain literally paralyzes your body during your sleep cycle to keep you from acting out your dreams.

  • I've had it a few times. The scariest one is when I felt like someone was on top of me choking me. I remember trying to say, "get off" and was struggling to move. I was pretty panicked until I realized what happened.
