sleep paralysis

Sleep paralysis is the scary experience when you are consciously awake and aware while your body is still paralyzed from REM sleep. Frequently hallucinations and nightmares are a part of it, as well as a tightening of the chest, idiomatically, a “demon on your chest.” While anyone can get sleep paralysis, it correlates with narcolepsy and sleep apnea.

Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.
