      Problem with Sleep Paralysis

      I have this problem, whenever I go into sleep paralysis, I wake up.

      For some reason whenever I enter SP it feels like there's a sort of ''sour'' pain inside my head. I don't know how to describe it well but it's not a pleasant feeling.

      I did have several succesful attempts with entering a dream after sleep paralysis but for the majority of times I just woke up during the SP.

      Does anybody else experience the same as I do?

      It is very strange for your body to fall asleep while the mind is still awake. It is something that can be too distracting. I can get very hot, with a glowing feeling. I think the pain you refer to is because the experience is not being spread across your whole body. When it starts try to picture it spreading down your body and that should spread out and lesson the discomfort.

      I get a pins and needles feeling a lot of the time which is very unnerving for me, but I just keep telling myself "I'll be in a dream soon!" and ride it out. Through enough experience I just learned to cope with it. I have never tried dispersing it through my body.

      I sometimes get a fairly uncomfortable tingly/fluttery feeling. It sort of feels like my whole body is tense and inside there are millions of tiny butterflies inside (it's a mild feeling). It's distracting I suppose, but I can usually ignore it and it will be replaced with another feeling. That one is usually the weightless feeling, which I have a love/hate relationship with.

      I know FA. But you said something might have been FAs. What might have been FAs?
