I think I learned about this in my psychology class. I think it happens when your in REM sleep. Don't remember it quite well, but it basically happens because your brain turns on while your body is still asleep. That might explain the weird things that tend to happen, when this happens to you.

I've had about 2 times in my life. not fun haha

Hahaha twitching happens i think when your body is falling asleep too fast and your brain wakes your body to time it right I think.

Ha. I was just going to say this. Moments after falling asleep, I'll have a quick dream that I'm falling off a house or ladder, and when I hit the ground, my whole body jerks.

I've had it happen a couple of times. But I'm not sure if it really happened - what I mean is that I think I may have dreamed that I woke up and couldn't move, but I was in fact asleep the entire time. If that makes sense.

regarding your first statement, do you mean dreaming of falling or getting a feeling of falling and you spaz out waking up? dreaming of falling i think is something diff than the feeling of it. the feeling is freaky is hell lol

Happens to me a lot, best thing to do is to consciously try to wiggle your fingers on the sheets and move your eyes. It will bring you out of it quicker. Then pray you don't have any sort of shadowy lamp post/creaking or something in your room because your brain WILL decide it's an axe murdered getting ready to hack you to bits.

I would see stuff like this in the corner. Felt like I had wire stretched tight across, holding me down so the boogie man could get me.

I used to enjoy anything trippy but these episodes did not make the list.

I had this happen to me last night, it was messed up. I was awake, but paralyzed, and I was sure there was someone in the room that was going to kill me or was trying to stick some kind of tube into my neck. I was trying so hard to move that when I finally woke up I almost flew out of bed.
