Hello, I have reached a point where I'm not sure what is no longer normal. I have dealt with sleep paralysis since my early teens and am now 30 years old. I understand we've all experienced some sort of hell with this "condition", however it has progressed beyond my tolerance level. From an episode occurring once every 6 months or so, it is now a couple times per week. I believe part of it stems from sleep apnea that I suffer from, however if I nap on my couch at home, it is much more severe. From immediate paralysis to a pounding (similar to an earthquake), I am not sure what to think. This is only consistent with the transition from awake to drifting off. As soon as I am out, (despite my struggle to regain consciousness) I experience a lot of intense dreams. It seems as though no matter what I try to do, something is shutting my body down. I do not take any medication, nor even a Tylenol for a headache. Any suggestions?
