    Recently my sleeping pattern has been all over the place, only sleeping when I'm at my peak level of tiredness. Also, I have been consuming a **** tonne of coffee anyway to the point last night at around two I thought I'd lay on my bed for a bit before I continue doing some work. 2 Minutes later laying with my hands rested underneath my head I felt completely paralysed, and that's not some kind of exaggeration. I could physically not move at all, AT ALL! which made me panic and have an adrenaline rush which then gave me the strength to move. Fascinated by this I returned to the position I was in before to see if I could replicate what has happened and I did five times after that I can't remember what happened and woke up 4 hours later, could anyone maybe give me an explanation as to what I may have experienced?
    Bear in mind at this point I was not dreaming I only feel asleep like 20 minutes after this happened...roughly.

    That's bizarre. I've never heard anything like it. I guess it sounds sorta like sleep paralysis...are you sure you weren't at least half asleep and dreaming?

    I'm almost certain. I wasn't even tired when I was laying down, I only did so because I was overwhelmed by the work. I remember precisely laying down with my hands rested underneath my head with my head facing towards the wall, the lights were still on in my room and after each "episode" I guess I remember looking down at my dog who slept on a little bed beside mine. During theses "episodes" I remember feeling extremely frightened!
