Sleep paralysis: What you need to know about sleeping paralysis

What does sleep paralysis look like?

A sleep paralysis is when the brain shuts down completely in response to a certain stimulus.

The person may not be able to fall asleep and they may feel disoriented.

They may also be unable to concentrate or perform any normal tasks. 

What causes sleep paralysis?

Sleep paralysis is a neurological disorder caused by sleep apneas.

The exact cause of sleep paralysis can be difficult to pinpoint, as it depends on the underlying cause.

Sleep paralysis can also result from sleep apnoea.

What are the symptoms of sleep apnia? 

The main symptoms of a sleep apniemic include: sleep apnesis (the inability to fall and remain asleep), disorientation, difficulty sleeping, blurred vision, and difficulty moving and talking.

The symptoms of severe sleep apnicias include: muscle spasms, rigidity, rigor mortis, and/or tremors.

How can I know if I have sleep paralysis or have sleep apnosias? 

If you notice any of the symptoms listed above, you should have a checkup by your doctor.

Sleep paralysis is not always a sign of sleep disorder.

However, sleep paralysis may cause other health problems such as muscle spasm, rigoric pneumonia, and tremors in the limbs, neck, or chest.

Sleep apnoses often develop in people who have never had a sleep disorder, such as those with insomnia.

Sleep paralysis can cause serious damage to the body.

Sleep disorders often have medical causes, such the presence of fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, multiple substance use disorders, and posttraumatic stress disorder.

The symptoms of some sleep disorders are not as well-known, so it is important to have a physical exam and a sleep test to determine if you have sleep disorder and if there are any medical conditions associated with it.
