What i don't understand is some mistaken sleep paralysis with the paranormal, why? Is it because you feel like someones holding you down, and since you see no one one automatically assumes its something paranormal..... That's why i'd like to know if there is different types/stages of 'sleep paralysis'.

Sometimes, people will see something, like some sort of being and sometimes even aliens, but this is an affect of the dream that is still going on.

Ok makes perfect sense, but it's not just about the muscles as you described, is it? It's also your brain and whichever state it may be (dream related). Our minds too go thru stages as we sleep, correct? So this all plays into the 'sleep paralysis', am i sumwhat on the right track?

Did you consult with a physician after this redbird15? The experience you described really doesn't sound like sleep paralysis to me either (as Bracket mentioned) because of the movement and the sounds you were able to make.

Honestly, it sounds like a grand mal seizure. Not everyone loses consciousness...personally I remembered mine. Epilepsy is not the only cause of seizures, head trauma, complications in pregnancy, drug withdrawls (including prescription meds)...the list is a long one.

You can read about some of the causes http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/grand-m...N=symptoms and also the symptoms of grand mal seizures http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/grand-m...N=symptoms.

If you experience this again, seek medical attention right away.

I honestly at the time did not even consider it to be a medical issue because I had never heard of sleep paralysis or anything related to it. I haven't had an episode since... At the time, I had been clean for two years, not drinking, no scripts, etc. If it has been such a long time since the incident, should I still go get checked out?

haha yeah I love the t.v on but man is it hard with relationships lol

To answer your question, my eyesight was normal. I had control over my eyes through the episode, and visually (other than seeing the bed shake) I saw nothing out of the ordinary.

Well as I said if it happens again, I would certainly seek medical attention right away. It is important to keep in mind that drug abuse can cause lesions in the temporal lobe of the brain...the same area that is responsible for causing siezures. So even 2 years of being clean, wouldn't neccesarily matter if there were a brain lesion present as a result of prior use. A seizure might have still been the problem even though it had been years since you had used. Cocaine is especially notorious for causing brain lesions and episodes of seizures in addicts, though other drugs can cause the same complications.
