Jaming during sleep

Patient : Well this is not what i think is really a disorder,it happens to me very less.. its like this ,sometimes during my sleep i feel that i have woken up and i can see things,objects around me but if i try to get up i can't, its like i have been jammed by something ,although after sometime i wake up normally.I have asked my friends about this and one of them said that this happens when you woke up subconsciously. This happens to me mostly during evenings and would like to know what is this and if this happens due to some deficiency?
