Sleep Paralysis 1 of 13

When you dream, your brain stops your body from moving so you don’t thrash around and hurt yourself. Those suffering from sleep paralysis either become paralyzed before they are asleep, or cannot move after waking up.

In addition to being frozen, often they will experience horrifying hallucinations – they imagine demons or a strange person with them in their room, or have the sensation of being touched or having someone call out their name. Lasting somewhere between a few seconds or even up to an hour, this disorder is related to jet lag, sleep deprivation, or consistently sleeping flat on your back.
