The thing is that I don't like sleep paralysis and when I finish the episode I want to get out of the sofa im sleeping in but I feel sooo drowsy that I don't have the strenght to get out of the sofa and I keep sleeping. what should I do ? any similar experiences?
I get it every so often, not near as much as my teenage years. and its actually, on average, happier than it used to be. When I was a teenager I would have a reoccurring one where our house was getting broken into, me too paralyzed to do anything. freaky stuff.
anyways, have you told your neurologist? Mine isn't bad/frequent enough to treat, but I imagine that it can be treated somehow.
