I remember something like that happening to me. I woke up because I saw that I was having a damn nightmare so I willed myself awake. I realized, "what the **** , not moving" and I saw that ************ beside my bed. Later I realized it was a dream, but because I thought I was fully awake I nope'd so hard that I jumped out of bed, picked up the nerf broadsword by my bed and swung so hard I probably would've KO'd a bear. Probably my most violent experience, most of the time it's just " **** , can't move."
MFW Seeing what looked like the thing from The Exorcist.

Ok I'm still confused on what sleep paralysis is. Is it just like having a nightmare? Because I don't see why that isn't normal...

you can enter it by lying still and not giving it to brain's checking whether you are ready to sleep(urges to scratch, move...). It should take about 10 minutes to fall into sleep paralysis, some take less, some more...

Then you can experience the dreaming while awake phenomenon.

He had sleep paralysis
It's a form of lucid dreaming where you believe your dream is really happening
#22 to #2 - Rascal (01/30/2013) [-]
He was in a sleep paralysis. Whenever you're in one, you'd hallucinate and imagine there are others around you :)

Just so you know. you don't wanna do this unless you've got balls of steel. Paralysis can cause panic, panic is fearful, and when your subconscious is exposed to fear, you start seeing things. I suffered sleep paralysis for a while and hated it, because it was never trippy or awesome. It just scares the **** out of you.

Your body paralyzes you while you sleep so you don't act out your dreams. Sometimes, if you wake up in the middle of REM sleep, when you're dreaming, your conscious and unconscious mind are 'on' at the same time and you can't move.

If you're not expecting it, the resulting helplessness can cause you to panic, making your unconscious mind react and start making your see scary stuff. It's sort of like a nightmare, but you're awake.
User avatar #135 to #134 - infamoustrapper (01/31/2013) [-]
Ohh gotcha. Is that common for people? Because it sounds like something fairly simple and could happen a lot but I've never heard about it before.
User avatar #136 to #135 - revanmal (01/31/2013) [-]
It's pretty uncommon. And it thankfully doesn't last very long in most cases.
User avatar #124 to #5 - BubsyB (01/30/2013) [-]
Sleep paralysis is caused by waking up suddenly and the paralysis is still there (its something the human body developed as a defense mechanism to stop humans moving during their sleep in case they were sleeping near high ledges or something) because the body still thinks the mind's alseep, and seeing as how you're still in this state it causes you to hallucinate because half of your bodies still asleep (like seeing a dream in real life, whatever happens is what your deep thoughts are.Which tends to be something horrifying due to the fact that first timers are panicking because they cant move) I hope to god I never have one because I never had one before. People claim to see black, skinny demons climbing over their legs towards their face. ******* creepy man.
User avatar #29 to #5 - valen (01/30/2013) [-]
Part of me wants it to happen, but the other part of me doesn't.
It sounds like a terrifying experience.
#41 to #29 - revanmal (01/30/2013) [-]
One time, an arm grew out of the wall and ripped the paint off like a mask. There was a skinless, bleeding, screaming face behind it.

Shadows move in threatening shapes, monsters and evil creatures sit on your chest, pinning you there (a subconscious manifestation of the paralysis), and there's just no telling what sort of horrible things will start torturing you. It only lasts for a few seconds, but it feels like forever.

A thing like the ************ in my picture showed up regularly.

I had sleep paralysis once, and in my dream some asshole was standing in the corner who looked like Slenderman naked, no genitals or anything though, just smooth white skin covering his whole body though, softly singing a tune i can't recognise. When he saw me staring , he looks at me and blood starts trickling out from where his mouth should be, then he zooms up on me like one of those screamer gifs, and I woke up drenched in sweat. ******* scary **** man.
User avatar #99 to #46 - Shmuck (01/30/2013) [-]
I have had a few awful experiences with sleep paralysis.

Most of the time i am on my side facing my wall so my back is turned to the open room. I get this overwhelming sense of paranoia and fear and then I usually feel someone or something slowly run their hand on my back and then slowly go over to my chest and start pulling me off the bed whispering creepy **** . I have actually woken up falling off the bed which is even more terrifying because that just adds to the "what if" factor that it actually is happening.

Sleep paralysis is definitely the scariest thing I have experienced. I've had it probably 20 times throughout my life. Some worse than others. I have had multiple occurrences in one night because i fall back asleep from being so tired but I am so terrified that i try and stay awake but I can feel myself falling back into a REM cycle and the harder i try to fight it the worse my paralysis is. Just straight fear and paranoia.
User avatar #54 - garentei (01/30/2013) [-]
Don't know if this is related but when I start falling to sleep I hear very LOUD voices in my head saying stuff like ''GET THE **** OUT YOU ****** **** DICK'', am I the only one?
#66 to #54 - mrdrpage (01/30/2013) [-]
I hear "You big smelly willy."

sleep paralysis is scary is **** it really gives you a true feeling of helplessness that you never think that you would feel especially if it is accompanied by hallucinations. I have experienced it twice and both nights had been the scariest moments of my life. After the second time it has happened to me i figured out that sleep on my back triggers it. The feeling is so real that you panic and i have woken up screaming from it and the first time it happened i woke my family up.
#32 to #20 - fukyouto (01/30/2013) [-]
i know how you feel but i normally get it about twice a month or maybe more, i can always control my eyelids so i keep my eyes shut so i dont see the hallucinations and i always hear extremely loud screaming or a loud growling right in my ear and pressure in my chest. its 100 times worse than a night mare :(

I never have sleeping problems, I can sleep anywhere at almost any time.


**** me right?
#50 to #18 - grahamernazi (01/30/2013) [-]
I might not find it that easy, but I have a similar "problem." I can sleep through anything as long as I can get a straight hour of sleep. I just hate it when I drink, get relaxed, and pass out whenever my head rests on anything.

Like most people, this happends to me every so often.   
Every night I fall asleep with he T.V on (helps me sleep). Randomly I realize im just starring at the roof, I could see the lights from the T.V out of the bottom of my peripheral vision. I tried to turn on my side so I'm more comfortable but to no avail. As I sit for what feels like around 30 seconds, I here my door slowly open, but i can't look, and at that time I knew what was happening. "			****************************************		."  I see for a brief second a woman walking straight up on my ceiling starring right into my eyes. Then my whole body twisted over and I woke up on my side, eyes wide open, drenched in sweat, pale as a ghost.

I was sleep paralysized in the car one, I thought my seatbelt was one too tight and I started flipping out but I couldn't move at all. When I was unparalysized I kicked open the door and ran for about a half mile to prove to myself I could move.

How does it feel getting beaten up by a wall? In your sleep, no less.

Only sleeping problem I've EVER had is when I sleep on my back I sometimes get the sensation that I'm falling, and because my eyes are closed and I can't place myself I start to feel sick. Of course, it's remedied by simply rolling sideways.   
   
None of the scary 			****		 you guys are dealing with.

See me, I moved beyond mere sleep paralysis.

Wake up in bed, lights off, bright alarm clock so i can faintly see.
Realize i can't move. Calmly tell myself over and over to move.
See closet door at opposite corner of room slowly open.
Now I'm screaming in my head to move.
Break out of paralysis, grab sword displayed on my shelf, and turn on lights.
Light bulb immediately goes out, turn on TV, TV goes out as well. Frantically try to open the door.
Finally wake up,
Back in my bed, same exact position, and i can't move.

It was a dream, it repeated itself, over and over, and over. Each time just a little different. Each time a little worst. Couldn't escape, just began from the beginning. Can't/Don't want to remember how many times.
If there is a hell, that'll be mine.

Also on a side note, it really pisses me off how anything contained within a larger version of itself is now called [X]ception, e.g. Woah bruh a circle in a circle CRICLECEPTION LOLLOLOLLLLOO HAAHaaahaaha HAHAHA So funny le MEME

Sleep paralysis is the single most terrifying thing I have ever experienced, at least the first time was. The only thing you can think is "What the **** is wrong with me?! Please, please, please don't be permanent...." It is the definition of utter helplessness. And I hope that my fellow FJers will never have to experience or experience it again.
#28 to #16 - Rascal (01/30/2013) [-]
It really is the scariest thing I have ever experienced, but no one I know could ever relate.

Once I had it, and I heard some noise in my house. Idk what it was but I couldnt move my body and it just got worse.. =/
#19 to #16 - aaronventura (01/30/2013) [-]
I hear you. Had it on and off for about 4 years now and no ******* drug seems to help. I have my own little ways of snapping out of it now, like trying to move only my fingers and nothing more. If you panic during sleep paralysis, it just makes it worse so close your eyes, try to calm down and wiggle your fingers!

One other way is to think putting a tap on. This sounds weird but I read it online and it works wonders. Just any tap/shower/hose whatever. Clearly picture everything about it and by the time you've got the picture in your head you've calmed down. I'm guessing it's less about the water/tap and more about occupying your mind with something else but it works regardless.

Hope this helps anyone that has to go through the torment.

Mine has been getting so bad lately that really the only thing I can do to wake up is hit my hand against the dresser by my bed till I wake up. I've been having it on and off for about nine or ten years now.
