I too have had experiences of this paralizing feeling in my sleep. It hasn't happened for some time now, probably nearly 6 months, but it happened a lot when I was younger. I will go to sleep and it's as though I fall into such a deep sleep that I wake up and I cannot move and I cannot breath and I cannot speak. It's a really scary feeling, usually before or possibly while it's happening I am dreaming that I am under water and holding my breath. When I come to I am awake, but apparently the rest of my body is in sleep mode. I always count to 3 in my head and I jolt myself out of it. I try to stay awake to regroup myself but it almost always happens again for what seems like seconds later and then I just fall alseep. I have never felt the presence or seen dark figures around me. It's good to know others can relate to this odd sleeping behavior!
