Sleep paralysis it can happen to anyone in a seconds or little than a minute I have experienced it once years ago and I hate it .. I knew I was awake but couldn't open my eyes or move my body it felt like my eyes were stuck and ur brain is awake I remember asking myself whats going on is this a dream?' ,but this is nothing.. Sleep paralysis it's bad when you stay like that for many hrs or days
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.
