Re: Sleep paralysis?
I don't have any advice, but I just want to let you know that I have been suffering from this condition since I was about 15 and I'm 29 now, so you are not alone. It happens off and on. It happens when I'm stressed. It is the most uncomfortable thing. I use to be terrified because it felt like my fear emotion was turned up, sometimes I would hear and see things that were not there. Because I am a spiritual person I associated the fear with "demons" I am no longer scared just annoyed when it happens. I do pray in my head when it happens and then I have to turn on a light, stay up for a little while, or change my sleep position. And I usually have a headache when I wake up too. I have read that there are medicines you can take if it is a real problem for you. Your doctor probably thought you were having a seizure. My oldest son suffers from nocturnal partial/complex seizures and he wakes up in the middle of the night either screaming like he is afraid or laughing or crying. It's strange. Genetically my side of my family suffers from nuerological conditions. And it seems, sleep paraylsis is one of them.
