Hi im male age 21. I moved from NY to Florida approximately 8months ago. About 3-4months after I moved I started to experience a feeling as if a force would render me paralysed in bed as I would get a shiver feeling throughout my body and couldn't open my eyes nor move but I was totally aware of the situation. It would last for approximately 15secs but it could of been longer...much longer but felt like 15secs to me. This went on for a few weeks then all of a sudden stopped. I have been trying to figure it out. My best conclusion has been that for those few weeks the air condition wasn't working properly and the temp of my room was higher then average. Could I have been having small heat strokes? I'm not to familiar with medical conditions so any help I would much appreciate. Also im not leaving this out of the question but I felt as if something or someone was in my body taking over holding me down as I fought to take back control. Wierd I know but its true.

Thanks for reading my crap thrown together!

  • Ok don't read above as I have figured it out: Sleep paralysis.It probably happened because I missed NY and was working a new job running an entire Automotive accessory department creating and producing new parts which would have cause lots of stress. Although they state Sleep paralysis mostly happens before waking up it usually happened around midnight and I was still tired. Anyways any feedback would still help
