Hi Guy's

I have been having strange sleep experiences, When my whole body relaxes and i'm ready to go to sleep I feel as if i'm floating which is normal and very relaxing but after that I feel as if I'm being sucked away at a very fast speed and it is quite scary, I try to resist and aventually I manage to pull my self out of it. The other night it happened and I was trying to call my wife so she could bring me round but I could hear myself speak but not very loud but my jaws were clamped like i was experiencing g force as you would if your travelling at a fast speed. Does not happen all the time. Maybe if I try not to regain contiousness I would have the best sleep of my life but the feeling of being sucked by a vacuim which is the only way I can describe it is quite scary and i start to panic.

look forward to some help.
Simon

Have you experienced similar sensations while waking up or you usually have them when falling asleep?
Have you felt fear, awareness of a "presence," chest or back pressure, and an inability to breathe at the same time?

Hi

When I was a teenager I remember once my brain waking up before my body and I was unable to open eyes very scary and only happened once. With regards to my experiences described in the post it only happens when I am relaxing to fall asleep. Sometimes when I'm lying in bed relaxing I do become breathless this is usually because my pillow is propped up and my chin is down on my airway to much so adjust my head possitition and I am ok. With regards to my experiences I am perfectly relaxed up to the point I feel as if my body is being sucked through a vacuim as if trying to be sucked in to another realm sounds crazy I know.

Look up "sleep paralysis". I had similar issues in the past. It's nothing to fear or resist.
