This has been happening to me for years. I used to think it was paranormal (I'm not crazy I swear) but the other day I heard about a sleep disorder where your body wakes up during REM sleep. It's the scariest thing for me. My eyes open and I can think and see the room but I am unable to move or make noise. During this I experience high anxiety and fear of falling back asleep. I would do anything for a pill that knocks me out and keeps me from dreaming or wasking up until 8 hours later. Like anethisia (sp?) for surgery where you close your eyes and when you wake up it's instant and like nothing happened.
Does anyone deal with this sleep disorder or have any ideas on what it could mean and how to treat it?
