Helpful Tips For Sleep Paralysis
#11
I do agree, it's a great post and an informative one..I have pinned it to the top of that forum. The title really looks fine to me, but if the OP would like to use another one, I can fix that.

Jravity,
If it does get pinned maybe update the title to "Shadow People, and Sleep Paralysis" or "I woke up and couldn't move(Sleep Paralysis)" so folks unfamiliar would have a easier go of it finding help Smile.

I am not sure how to update the title. Any ideas?

Maybe "Shadow People or Sleep Paralysis?" (titled as a question) or "Helpful Tips With Sleep Paralysis". I will say I think the title you have is fine, but maybe adding something about shadow people or phrasing it as a 'tip' thread might get more people who are unfamiliar looking at your post.

I probably won't be back on until a bit later this evening, but feel free to keep up with suggestions. I'll let you make the final call, jravity1.

Title change was a small suggestion due to unfamiliar folks comming round. It could well stay as it is. Just a whim, its up to you as scary said.

I just want to make sure everyone who needs this info can get it, and knows where to get answers if they need to.

Now it still unnerving, but i understand what it is going on. So please understand I am telling you this as someone who has gone through it, but also who know exactly what is happening.

When you go to sleep your body releases a chemical that paralyzes your body. Your body does this to stop you from acting out your dreams. When your body does this you are not able to freely move. However, when you toss and turn in your sleep, your body doesn't have enough of the chemical in your body. If you are severely low of this chemical it will allow sleep walking to happen.

So here is what happens, if you wake up during a rem cycle before the chemicals leave your body, you will be able to open your eyes, unfortunately you will be unable to move, and you will also be half asleep.

This means that if you are afraid, you may see bad things, hear things that are not there, but the worst part is the feeling of being held down. You will feel a heavy pressure on your chest, that is not a demon, that is the feeling of having no body control, you are feeling what paraplegics feel everyday. Don't even try screaming for someone, it won't work and it to me is the scariest part. Trying and not being able to speak is very unnerving.

If you however understand what is going on, or remain calm you will find that it will be over in a few minutes, and trust me that few minutes can feel like an eternity.

Sleep paralysis can lead to an extreme amount of fear, the feeling of being held down even in normal circumstances is bad enough, so this is insane for some people.

My recommendations to you are first, remain calm and realize what is happening. Second, try to wiggle your fingers and toes, or toss and turn. Don't over exert yourself or freak out because its not working automatically.

This situation has been linked to lucid dreaming as well. If you are trying to lucid dream, please realize that this could happen to you.

Do you have any questions for me?


Questions? LOL

Uhh....no, I don't think so. Since this has been known for years now. I recall my nephew telling me his physician explained it to him about five years ago when he was having bouts of it.

I will even go ya one better, the two chemicals are actually neurotransmitters released in the brain: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycine.

Thanks for sharing, though!

Well it's wonderful to know the terminology. Sleep paralysis HAS been known for years, yes. Very few have thought to give advice on what to do when it happens.

Changing the title to "Helpful Tips For Sleep Paralysis". And again, thanks for the suggestions, jravity!

Great thread and one that has just helped me a lot. I suffered with sleep paralysis twice last year and had never suffered it before. The feeling of being pushed into the bed was very scary as was the black shadow figure at the side of me, however, now that has been explained so well, I think that I can now debug that.

What I still am unable to debug is on 2 other occasions some invisible entity had sat on the side of the mattress and you could clearly see the imprint in the mattress where it had dipped down.

This happened once to me and once to my wife - my experience happened the first and I didn't tell my wife about it because i know it would have freaked her out.

The entity sat there for about 2-3 minutes then must have stood up because the mattress went back into its normal position and the imprint had gone.

About 4 months later my wife was sat up in bed with heart burn when her side of the mattress went down. She panicked and lay back down cuddling up to me. She said it was about 5 minutes before it stood back up again.

I have no idea about what this could be - can anyone offer any suggestions?

I was only trying to help here. Some people do know what is happening, but the truth is that some people really don't. I posted this to try to help people. It seems to me that maybe this upset you for some reason. This post was not directed at you, so when I say "Questions"..I was not just talking to you. I am glad you do not have questions, and that know everything about the subject.

Also, there is a lot of information that I did not put on here, including the chemical names, not because I don't know them, but because I tried not to get to technical.

and you are welcome....

By the way If you wrote something on here that I already knew, I would never treat you like you just treated me.
