Last night I went to bed late around 1 or 130am and woke up at 230am to goto the restroom. When I woke up I could not stand up on my left leg. I was so freaked out, and my mind raced into a fear. I don't know exactly what I was thinking except I believed I almost started shaking. About 2 to 3 minutes passed and I could walk. I was so freaked out I couldnt sleep till 4 or 5am. I have been awake sence 11am and had tingling in my left leg and arm like they are going asleep but they arn't.

I looked at facts on Sleep Paralysis and TIA on the web.

I'm not sure what to think. I am 28 year old male, 6'7" 190 and fit, I have had panic attacks before but not in about 7 years. I have been stressed from wedding planning and not alot of sleep and always tired.

I think Sleep Paralysis is what happened but the hole tingling in my left side is feels not right. anyone have thoughts?
