Patient :Ok, I am 17 years old...last night I went to bed and woke up at exactly 3:25am...I couldn't get my self to go back to sleep. Every time I closed my eyes my body would feel weird and everything would start to sound like its humming, my eye sight would get blury and I felt like i couldn't move. I felt a hand touch my thigh and no one was in the room except my brother playing video games. I didn't think much of it. But every time I closed my eyes I could t move my eyes went blury and I felt really weird. The worst one was when it felt like something was hovering over top of me and I couldn't move at all. I groaned and forced my self to move. I had my dog sleep at the foot of my bed and that seemed to help until she moved then it came again. I asked my mom and she said I was probably having a panic atack or a heart problem but when I open my eyes and moved a little it stopes until I shut them...I didn't go back to sleep until I went up stairs on my couch around 5:38am then I slept for about 15 mins an I was fine...nothing happened. I'm planing on sleeping in the basement on my bed again tonight to see if it happens again. But I wanna know what all that was and how I can prevent it from happening again because I was scared and nervous.
