sleep disorder

i have suffered with sleep parlysis for 14 years,i have it nearly every night,although the experience is always terrifying iv pretty much learned to live with it,sometimes it happens 4 times a night.what is concerning me is over the last year i am waking up sometimes 10 times a night,when i wake up i am fully awake and have no trouble getting back to sleep.its starting to affect my work i nearly fell asleep at work(i am a chef)over the last few days its been getting worse.i have also noticed that whenever i am angry my jaw goes numb and have weakness in my left arm and hand.i sufferd depression a few years ago and was given venlafaxine my mood is much better but i still take the venlafaxine.i was just wondering if this is any kind of sleep disorder
