Patient :Hey! I am a 17 year old guy who often have sleep paralysis. I wake up in the middle of the night and can not move. Sometimes I see something next to me who are often very close to me, but mostly so I just can not move my body and it feels weird with my breathing. My question is if I can do anything to resist sleep paralysis, and if it affects my breathing or if it's just that it feels when I paralyzes? Grateful for answers! :)
Symptoms: My symptoms are that I can not move and it feels weird with my breathing while i am paralyzing in sleep.
