Sleep paralysis

This has only happened to me once.

I was dreaming, that I was driving along a familiar road (one I use to get home from tuitions daily) , and then suddenly my eyes closed. Now, a vision impairment is no small issue when you're driving a two-wheeler on a crowded street; yet, in the dream my Scooty did not wobble at all while I was mentally yelling at myself to OPEN YOUR EYES, DAMMIT, OR YOU'LL DIE!!

I was totally unable to get my eyes to open both in the dream, and IRL. After a while, the sensations of driving my Scooty with eyes closed(road bumps, the engine rumbling, and so on) faded and I woke up. At least mentally. I was still unable to open my eyes. It's like my body wasn't connected to my mind anymore. And holy crap, did it scare the ever-loving shit out of me.

I think I might have laid on my bed, panicking silently for about 5-10 minutes or so; I was able to open my eyes a while later. This has never happened to me so far. I looked it up on the net later; thankfully, one-time sleep paralysis is not a symptom of a horrifying disease or something.

Has anybody else experienced anything similar?

RE: Sleep paralysis

I sometimes have trouble walking in my dreams. My legs are lead heavy and uncontrollable

RE: Sleep paralysis

I've heard of sleep paralysis before and what I usually read is the person is laying in bed unable to move and they see a monster demon of some sort. With someone I know, they are in bed unable to move and they see people they know doing stuff around them.

RE: Sleep paralysis

It used to happen to me quite often when I had afternoon naps. I learned to keep my eyes closed so that I don't see the freaky dark shadowy people around my bed. I wanted to be able to fall asleep and hopefully have a lucid dream (which happens quite often after sleep paralysis, if you can get back to sleep).
