saoirse Posted March 11, 2012 Share Posted March 11, 2012 Things have been going well, except for my sleep. For months I've had to sleep with a light on in my room because if not, I will almost certainly wake up from sleep and the following will happen: -sleep paralysis, bad but not unendurable -I will hear slamming doors, and the loud laughter of strangers - next I will see people standing over my bed. I will try to move and run but I can't, I'm paralyzed. Im screaming inside. -they begin to speak and start pressing down on my chest and abdomen. At this point the terror is so bad I feel like dying. I understand these are common occurrences. I always finally am pulled back into wakeness with tears all over my face. It is awful. These hallucinations and paralysis have endured beyond medication changes so I don't know what is wrong. Only keeping the light on keeps the hallucinations away. I also have idiopathic hypersomnia if that matters. Has anyone else dealt with these and got rid of them? I haven't slept well in three nights and have work early tomorrow. I'm at the end of my rope.
