Sleep Paralysis...
Waking Up And Being Unable To Move
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night terrified and been unable to move?
Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon that occurs when a person wakes up from a sleep being unable to move, speak, or react.
It usually occurs as a person is about to fall asleep or as they are about to wake up out of sleep, and is usually accompanied with breathing difficulties.
This may not sound like a big deal for those who haven?t experienced it, but it can be terrifying at times.
You are totally paralyzed and unable to wake yourself up.
When you are in a state of paralysis,it is the brains natural response to think that you are under attack, so your brain naturally enters into a state of ?flight? mode.
Sometimes, sleep paralysis is accompanied by hallucinations or the feeling that there is an intruder in the room.
Some people even claim to sense the presence of demonic entities that sit on their chest, or aliens that stand over top of them.
In fact, the Chinese used to call this experience ?Gui Ya? which means ?ghost pressure?, and they believed that a ghost would come sit on your chest as you sleep and paralyze you.
What is the scientific reason reason this is happening?
Well, there isn?t any confirmed theory out there yet.
The most plausible scientific explanation is that it is thought to occur when the mind wakes up out of REM sleep while the body is still in a state of atonia to prevent sleepers from acting out their dreams.
I would agree with this for the most part, but who have experienced sleep paralysis with eyes open as one was sitting up in bed after waking up from a sleep, so one know for a fact my brain was not in a REM state of sleep because one could already been awake for several minutes.
In this notification, we will look at what to do to stay calm during sleep paralysis, how to prevent it from happening, and how to use it to your own spiritual advantage.
What to do when you can?t move
I have had a great deal of experiences with sleep paralysis, and have now reached a point where it no longer bothers one anymore.
The first time it happened to someone, One can tried to fight it and forcefully wake myself up from it.
This only caused by ones fear and anxiety and was completely ineffective.
If you wake up and realize you are in a state of sleep paralysis, don?t resist it.
The minute you resist it, you will start freaking out.
Accept it, and treat it as an opportunity to practice patience and peace of mind.
Conscious breathing really helps keeping your mind from entering freak-out mode.
Breathe in slowly and consciously, and exhale slowly and consciously.
Don?t panic.
Make it your mission when you are in sleep paralysis to be as calm as you can, and treat it as a chance to be fully present within your body.
Enter a meditative state of mind, and it will shortly pass with time.

There have been times where one have heard voices in ear while being paralyzed, but One remained calm by meditating and practicing conscious breathing.
It?s kind of like taking psychedelic drugs.
You can give yourself a bad experience by what you choose to think about and where you allow your mind to wander.
It can only have power over you if you give it your power.
Keep your attention inside your breath.
Pretend that you chose you would experience sleep paralysis at that time, and full embrace the experience with peace of mind.
Prayer has also brought many people peace during scary experiences of sleep paralysis, so if you feel comfortable calling out to God, that will only help bring you more comfort.
Preventing sleep paralysis
There are several factors that have been identified as increasing your chances of experiencing sleep paralysis.
Some of these include physical fatigue, under-sleeping, and erratic sleep schedule,stress, and an overuse of stimulants.
For me personally, oversleeping is what has caused most of my sleep paralysis experiences.
Most of the happen when one choose to go back to sleep even when one can rested, or when one take a nap throughout the day.
So a big way to prevent paralysis from happening is to have a proper sleep schedule.
Healthier sleep habits is the best thing you can do to avoid this experience.
Another big way to prevent sleep paralysis is to not sleep in supine position.
This is what supine position looks like:
When you sleep flat on your back in supine position, your soft palate is more likely to collapse and obstruct your breathing.
This causes you to wake up out of deep sleep while your body is still in a state of atonia from REM sleep.
Sleeping on your stomach (in prone position) or on your side is a good way to prevent this from happening.
Using sleep paralysis to your spiritual advantage
Sleep paralysis can be a burden for some, and an opportunity for others.
Not only can you treat it as a test to see how present and calm you can become,you can also use it a chance to try to initiate an out-of-body experience or a lucid dream.
Remember, some part of you remains in REM sleep while your waking mind is alert and attentive.  What if this REM atonia is a sort of toolbox that enables you to use your will, intention, and visualization to leave your body and enter into new worlds?

Affirm to yourself that you are going to have an out-of-body experience, and visualize yourself hovering over top of your own body.
Feel yourself starting to leave your body, and stay calm in your mind knowing that you will soon be outside of your body.
Many people claim that they try to induce sleep paralysis on purpose as one of the beginning stages of astral travel.
Don?t think if yourself as a victim to a scary experience.
Think of yourself as a pioneer on the edge of a world of lucid dreams and astral travel and create the experience you want for yourself.  Science tells us that we are literally at the brink of the world of sleep and dreams and the world of waking life.
Why not use it to your spiritual advantage and experiment a little bit?
The truth is, there is really nothing to be scared of.
Nobody has ever died or been injured from being in sleep paralysis,and it usually doesn?t last for more than 30 seconds.
Work with it, practice presence, clean up your sleep schedule, and if you feel like you?re up to it, use is as a launching pad for the exploration of other dimensions.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I must know what was cause of your numbness but usually it is a manifestation of either a nerve compression or a neuropathy or sometimes a vascular cause. Usually vitamin b 12 supplementation and medications for neuropathic symptoms like pregabalin or gabapentin are recommended initially. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Can Sleep Irregularity be a Sign of Depression?

Can Sleep Irregularity be a Sign of Depression?

Depression is a clinical, mental and emotional condition that may give rise to feelings of hopelessness and chronic sadness. It slows down the way people process everyday activities and leads the patient to a sense of constant gloom and doom. It is a disabling mental condition as per who and may be caused due to reasons like genetics, changes in the balance of hormones, stress, grief, trauma and prolonged, chronic physical ailments.

Symptoms of depression are:

  1. Sleep irregularity: It relates to either insomnia or oversleeping that is, either you sleep too much or do not sleep at all. This could be because of work or other stress in your personal or professional life.
  2. Irritation or unnecessarily getting angry: You start losing your temper easily and that too for silly reasons. You think you are losing control.
  3. Feeling hopeless and sad: The first signal or symptom is the feeling of hopelessness. In this, case the patient loses the hope in everything. They feel like being trapped in some kind of cage, from which they are not able to come out.
  4. Lack of interest in anything: Everything seems to be of no use or interest, even your daily work. You don't want to do anything; even the things, which you loved to do like your hobbies and passions, which you no longer find interesting.

Here is a comprehensive list of homeopathic medicines which most doctors are likely to recommend for treating depression:

  1. Sepia: This medicine is beneficial to women suffering from post-partum depression (sadness or emotional conflict after giving birth) and menopause. Feeling of solitude and hopelessness with no energy to continue with life are some common symptoms that can be reduced with Sepia.
  2. Arsenicum album: This medicine is prescribed to control the symptoms like diarrhea, gastric problems, indigestion which patients often suffer from as a result of intense anxiety. Patients, appropriate for this medicine tend to be fastidious and restless. It is made of white arsenic and should be taken in prescribed potency because an overdose can cause gastroenteritis.

The above mentioned medicines are just some of the medicines, which should only be taken only after consulting your doctor, as causes and symptoms differ for each person.

Hi, there are two types of insomnia: primary insomnia and secondary insomnia. Primary insomnia: primary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems that are not directly associated with any other health condition or problem. Secondary insomnia: secondary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems because of something else, such as a health condition (like asthma, depression, arthritis, cancer, or heartburn); pain; medication they are taking; or a substance they are using (like alcohol). Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Management: here are five tips everyone can use to help improve the quality of their sleep: keep your bedroom cool and dark put away/turn off all electronic devices while preparing for bedtime stick to a regular bedtime and wake time every day, even on weekends stop drinking caffeine by the early afternoon and avoid large late-night meals skip the late-afternoon nap, as it can make it harder to sleep at bedtime avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Do regular exercise. Go for a brisk walk in the morning. Medication: take schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos./ once daily at night for 1 month.

I can understand how disturbing an interuppted, inappropriate or disturbed sleep can affect your day to day life. In india it has been found 55% of patients are suffering from insomnia just because of stress, distractions and anxiety. So the best way to get rid from insomnia is to reduce the stress level. A physiotherapist can help you to give you the ways to relax your mind and give you comfort and stress full sleep. Consult some neurologist/neuropyschiatric and start taking medicine if it is due to some neurological discorder. And consult nearby physio who can make a perfect routine and daily life styl chart to make you relax so that you get an appropriate sleep. Please follow some points that will help you in such condition along with medical treatment: 1) use of ice packs over your eyes or frontal area for some time to give relaxation. 2) massage your head especially forehead area using levander oil or clove oil as it removes toxins from body 3) regular intake of healthy dietry food rich in proteins and vitamins. 4) avoid fasting - eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at fixed timings 5) make yourself busy by fulfilling your hobby as it will give you freshness and your mind will be diverted from normal life which help in pain reduction. 6) before sleeping time do some relaxation exercises. - sit on chair with both the hands placed on the pillow placed over thighs. - deep inhale from your nose, mouth should be closed. - hold your breath for the count of 5. - exhale completely from mouth making a loud sound. Continue to do this exercise for 10 times. Before going to bed make a habit of doing this daily. Modified technique of same exercise is while inhaling extend your arms, hold for 5 count and then exhale making your arms back in the rest position. 7) room modification while sleep - make sure room should be dark with no noise. Avoid sleeping immediately after dinner or food. Take a walk for 15 min and then come back, bed should be not too soft not too hard. 8) it is recommended to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water per day. It is also a very good habit to start and finish your day by drinking a good glass of purifying water. 9) exerices like aerobics (running) can be done to make your muscles active. Many other ways are there in order to maintain your life stress free and active so that you can continue to sleep on time and it does affect your life. For more help or instructions please consult. Good luck and get well soon.

But she is not able to open her eyes please someone help us with your answers ASAP please I am begging you on my knees. I can not bear to see her like that she was going through hell.

Dear lybrate-user, how I wish our science had something to help your grandma. When blood clots in an artery or pipe, the area where blood goes becomes blood less and that area becomes dead. Now small portion of her brain has died due to no blood supply. The blood supply to that area could have been corected by clot bursting drugs within 1-3 hours of attack of paralysis but not later. Under present circumstances our science has no treatment to replace dead portion of brain. Just serve her with tender care, accept it as her destiny and your destiny to watch this helplessly. We (our science) are very weak in treating neurological disorders. Let us hope future brings some hope with transplantation of brain tissue!
