    I have experienced it quite a bit of times when I was younger. Scary stuff.

    Yeah, I've had it. Though I thought it was quite amusing.

    luckely never
    Occasionally, when I wake up, I can't feel or move my arm, but that's because the blood vessels got blocked or something. Usually after a minute or so it's normal.

    I've only had it once, it was really weird but lasted less than a minute so I didn't have time to panic. I spent the time trying to move and wake myself up, I was trying to convince my arm to slap myself around the face when I finally woke up. Kinda scary afterwards, I'd never heard of it before so I felt better after I'd googled it.

    I've had this possibly once or twice. My main issue is insomnia and when I finally do get to sleep, I can't breath half of the time aka Sleep Apnea.

    I've never experienced it... And I wouldn't know if I have anyway, cos immediately after I wake up from my sleep I just stay in that position and laze around like a sloth.

    Nope... [​IMG]

    But once I woke up in the middle of the night (err... about 3:00 iirc) (oh and lucky me, because if I didn't wake up. This post would be a lot harder for me to write o.o)
    And I couldn't feel/move my right arm...
    Most people would probably kinda freak out [​IMG]
    But I laughed xD
    I moved my arm with my other arm and didn't feel anything...
    I thought it was funny lol
    But then feeling came back.
    I slept on my arm which probably caused the 'paralyse' Or whatever it was [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm a sicko.
    I would laugh in situations were most people would be terrified :/

    Yeah, but without the hallucinations. Still, it was scary, I could not control my breathing so I thought that I was suffocating... So I just decided to... sleep. I've experienced another SP 20 minutes after but it was funnier 'cause South Park was on TV. It's was a bit difficult to laugh during the paralysis [​IMG]

    I haven't had that experienced ever since I was young into an adult now. None. Scary, I bet.

    Yes I had it many times as a kid, lasted over a minute, sometimes 2 or 3. Was scary as shit as kid. I had no idea what was going on. I could kind of move my eyes, but it was a huge struggle. I was awake but unable to move.

    What's even weirder is that I felt a strange burning/scratching sensation on my legs during the paralysis, which areas were later affected by psoriasis. Very creepy.

    When I suddenly jolted awake it was such a relief but a very odd sensation, it felt like someone was electrocuting you awake.

    And it's not sleep paralysis, but I quite often wake up to find myself sleeping on my arm which is completely dead. Takes a good 30-40 seconds for the blood to return to my arm and I'm able to move it. [​IMG]

    It happens when you sleep on your arm and block your blood circulation. It feels really funny. I always try to hit my arm at these moments [​IMG] I remember one time I moved my paralyzed arm and it fell from the bed, almost making me to fall [​IMG]

    I've never experienced it, although it does sound like it'd be pretty interesting.
