Hello sir, my problem was frequently during my sleep I'm feeling very hard to wake up & all of a sudden all my body was not working I. E. My muscles are not working and also body parts becoming stiff I can fell it while this is happening I can hear the surrounding sounds and voice but I can't wake up while I'm trying hard to get up I can move only my index finger and the nerve impulses are generating from that finger to whole of the body so that I can get up. This is happening only for a few minutes this is stopping when I won't sleep for an hour if I sleep immediately same problem reapts. Sir I have to mention you that this happening whenever I feel stress sir I'm facing this problem from 2 years it comes very frequently. Sir in my opinion this is happening due to stoppage of nerve impulse as I was studying as a dental doctor. Sir please say me remedies and suggestions how to control it. I was so irritated by this problem. Thank you.

Sleep is the normal physiological process of our body which is as important as respiration and digestion. Sleep is vital for maintaining our physical and mental health. Normal adults require 8 hours of sleep every day, whereas it 14 to 15 hours of sleep is recommended for for infants and toddlers.
What are the different stages of Sleep
Every human has a natural circadian clock in their body, which is responsible for maintaining our sleep - wake homeostasis. The different stages of sleep include REM and NREM that is rapid eye movement sleep and non rapid eye movement sleep respectively. REM is the deep sleep stage in which it is very difficult to wake up the person as this stage includes the sensory inhibition and all voluntary muscles along with almost all interactions with the surroundings are inhibited. Therefore, a person’s physical stress and tiredness also gets relieved during this stage of sleep. NREM sleep is the stage between REM and awakening and here the person may have sensory connection with his or her surroundings, but may not respond.
