Definitely visit a doctor; you may be having spasms or a small seizure; possibly a sleep "freeze" spell. (I am not sure of the exact terminology) Be careful, and alert your parents/guardian/teacher/doctor right away of this issue. It could be fatal if not cared for :(
Hope I helped, and good luck :)

I have had this too!!! Not in a long time but it was super scary! I tried to talk and only could barely moan. I felt like my body only wanted to go back to sleep but I had to fight to stay awake! Finally I came out of it. I read about it and it is common but I hated it!

I think so! I am 31 now and it happened last when I was like 24. I forgot about it till I read this. So I think it will be alright:) Just super scary and weird not to have control of your body but your mind is working. I asked my doctor and he made it seem like it was common :)

Yah, it's sleep paralysis. Basically your body is just asleep while your mind is awake.
