WILD Method Throat Swallowing Problem

Postby MrMan » 12 Oct 2012 13:58

Every night I wake up at 3 am. I try to do WILD were I lay still and try to get sleep paralysis, but I have a problem with my throat and having to swallow. I can easily lay still and not roll over or itch my arm and things like that, but my throat is I problem I cannot solve. :(

Well, I heard that when solving this problem, you can roll onto your side and sleep like that. Or, If you are on your back, tilt your head back (using additional pillows) or tucking your chin in. What I usually do, is try to ignore it... Somehow :? Hope this helps :D

I sleep on my side, too. I simply find that position more comfy.

As for the throat thing, I had that problem too. I just kept my throat open so that I didn't need to swallow. (Yes, that is nasty, but it works.)

if you have to swallow then swallow, that simple and then get back to what you were doing. Its a natural reflex and part of going to sleep so take it as a sign, swallow and then back to the job at hand which is staying awake while going to sleep

This has actually never affected me... I can usually swallow, and I had always supposed my body just thought that it was a natural reflex, and continued to do what it was doing.
