To give an example, I fell asleep getting a cavity filled. No meds, no numbing, I just dozed off, and the doctor was like "alright, were done"...and i woke up

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.

Actually, I would say that's pretty lucky. I suffer from tinnitus, so I have to go to sleep with some audible thing on, or else I can't sleep.

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 was in a sleep paralysis. Whenever you're in one, you'd hallucinate and imagine there are others around you :)

He had sleep paralysis
It's a form of lucid dreaming where you believe your dream is really happening

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.

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...

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.

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.

It's pretty uncommon. And it thankfully doesn't last very long in most cases.

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.

Part of me wants it to happen, but the other part of me doesn't.
It sounds like a terrifying experience.

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 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."

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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.

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 :(
