when you wake up before you body does, when you sleep to avoid running into walls and stuff your body can't receive signals from your brain. Sleep walking is the opposite of sleep paralysis.

It's a state between sleep and being awake where you are awake and can open your eyes but can't move any body parts or speak. You may also experience some hallucinations in this state and it's very scary the first time around. I literally tried to scream for my mom when it first happened to me.

It's when you enter or exit the REM cycle out of order. Parts of your brain that control consciousness and motor functions have a specific order in which the shut down and start up while falling asleep or waking up from sleep. It can be caused by many different ailments including lack of sleep, and stress. I used to deal with it on a frequent basis while I was working night shifts.

When you wake up and you are still in a dreamlike state. Your body goes rigid and sometimes you yell out and don't fully comprehend were you are. My husband has these. It's scary to witness.
