REM paralysis

I am a 47-year-old female. Over the past 5 years or so I have had many dreams where I feel like someone is in the room with me. One dream it was like a ghost standing by the bed. On several occasions it feels like someone is on my bed. It is this overwhelming feeling that someone is there and I am unable to move. I always wake trying to scream for help.

Most of the dreams occur when my husband is away and I’m alone in the house. They are very vivid and I can remember each one to this day. I think this is beginning to affect my health. I wake with a racing heart and palpitations and never get a complete night’s rest during the time my husband is away traveling with his job. At night I fall asleep within 10 minutes of going to bed but I’m awake within 3-4 hours and have a very hard time returning to sleep. When I do finally fall asleep this is when the dreams seem to occur.
