And then there's Sleep Paralysis.

It's like someone has a grasp all over your body and the only part you can move is your toes.
This is followed by hearing weird noises, the feeling of being watched by someone and the presence of evil.

Azura watch over me...

I've had that happen to me twice. just as you said you can't move anything but your toes and finger tips. its scary as **** really

I dont know what caused it but I woke up couldn't move and my eyes were closed but I was awake. I had to force myself to wake up. I didnt hear and weird noises just a bunch of sound like the sound of choas

I have never felt sleep paralysis... this jerking thing happens to me every night but sleep paralysis never comes even if I've been up until 3 am playing video games.

According to some people, there's a huge chance of you getting Sleep Paralysis if you're lying on your back.

I don't believe this since I still can get SP regardless of my sleeping position.

Here in my country, the locals believe that you can get afflicted whenever you eat **** tons of rice or if you have a full stomach then immediately going to bed.

I sleep in all positions but predominately on my sides.

I also always have a snack right before bed (the more I eat the more vivid I dream but if I eat an entire chinese buffet before bed all I'll get is bad nightmares)... it just never has affected me, and I'm not even sure I want it

I've also slept with my eyes open as a child, sleep talked in different languages and sleepwalked, but never any sleep paralysis. Maybe I should just count myself lucky.

Indeed and thank Azura you didn't experienced one, still though, it's considered as a "normal" occurrence among people.

Just remember to move your toes and try snapping them, oh, I forgot that your breathing will also get clogged for some reason.

I'm actually trying to do this for W.I.L.D. Lucid dreaming, it's not as bad as you say, I got halfway paralyzed but then I accidentally woke up.

Lucid dreaming and paralysis are two different things... I've had some pretty damn realistic, lucid dreams complete with taste and smell and touch but still been able to jerk myself out of it and move.

while in a state of sleep paralysis, you can go straight from being awake to dreaming and knowing that you are dreaming.

It's so much worse if you don't expect it, and especially if you don't know what it is and you've never had it before.
If you actually TRY to paralyze yourself in your sleep, of course it's not bad.

I think it happened to me some years ago...
The only thing I can remember is that I couldn't move my head in the dream though.
