  • thats happened to me on rare occasions....Ive had it happen enough that I know how to get out of it. I forgot what its called but Im not so concerned to where id go to a sleep specialist. cuz i have a lot of sleep probmlems but that only happens once and a while, everything else like the paralysis and insomnia comes with a stressful day...

    Just stay calm and think really hard about breathing...i know its scary

  • You may have sleep apnea; contact your doctor to set up a sleep study.
