Question about sleep paralysis

Postby Blast169 » 05 Sep 2014 23:31

When you have sleep paralysis, are you awake and cant move, or asleep and dreaming about not being able to move? Also, is it possible to dream about being paralyzed?

As above and just accept what is going on or it can get scary as part of your mind creates illusions (noise, pressure, odd sensations) to give reason to what you are experiencing.
Just go with it and see it as the gateway to re-entering the dream.

I think all of the the things you said may be possible.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

I have done some research into this last year and apparently it can sometimes be to do with how you are laying when you are asleep and the pressure this puts on your body. Totally not the technical explanation but look it up in wikipedia as it has some really good information about what happens to your body there.
