Is this Sleep Paralysis?

Postby Nocturnal » 28 Apr 2011 01:11

Sometimes, usually after a dream, I suddenly awake to find my arm (or another limb) very numb, as if it "fell asleep" (excuse the pun!). Is this because I am suddenly coming out of Sleep Paralysis?

Thanks in advance!

BTW, love this website, I am very optimistic about its future =]

Also, will you be adding section to this forum (similar to LD4all?)

:D hi, as far as i know this is not sleep paralasis as you have to time it right to get sleep paralasis because of your rem cycle, you probably enterd your n/rem (non rem) which allows your body to toss and turn while you arn't dreaming and cut off the blood supply shortly before you woke. :lol:

Yeah, like "Pins and Needles" thats what we call it here. I've woken up with half of my torso and arm all frozen before. It's a blood circulation thing.
I am an Engineering student, and have yet to experience a lucid dream. Currently on break, I am hoping to try and master the technique as it will give me some peace during the busy school year. Any advice or links are appreciated. Feel free to pm me.
