paralyzed!!! and, tired...

I’m a 22 year old female with what I believe is a very serious problem. It started strongly when I was about 16…

It was New Year’s Eve. I spent the night at a friend’s house. When I laid down to sleep in the spare room it was like something grabbed me and was holding me down on the bed. All I could hear was sceaming or what sounded like screaming. It was the most terrifying thing I’d ever been through. I couldn’t move, speak, or open my eyes. It felt like there was a bar across my back and I was being pressed down hard. The harder I fought the worse it got.

This still happens to me to this day. Once a person was sleeping in the same room with me and I had to fight so hard to make a little peep of sound. She woke up and it stopped. She said it looked like I was dying.

It used to scare me really bad and I used to fight it. Now I’ve gotten used to it and it doesn’t happen as much as before. I don’t fight it. I let it go further and further to the point where I have major out of body experiences. It’s very hard to explain how it feels. Mind you, I’m fully awake when this happens to me. It only happens when I lay on my back also. It’s a major problem because it’s very frightening….and really wears me out.

My second problem is that on nights when I sleep I dream very strongly. I can remember my dreams and they are very real—almost like watching a movie. They are in color and make sense and include lots of sex. My biggest problem is that I wake up so tired—like I didn’t even sleep! It’s terrible!

I would like to maybe be in a study or just get an opinon of what might be wrong.
