I’ve struggled with sleep paralysis (SP) for a long time. It happens frequently and multiple times a night. Most of my hallucinations involve being taken advantage of by an unknown figure or ripped apart by many unknowns figures. (They’re also blue.) Because if these images SP has become very unpleasent. I become scared of going to bed, but I know I need to sleep for my health. I was wondering if there were any treatments that would help prevent, stop, lessen the amount of times it happens, stop the hallucinations, etc?
Plus, when I enter an episode my heart beat becomes very, very rapid and my breathing stops. I’ve read that SP is physically harmless but when these things happen I fear death.
Please help, this battle is getting old.
Any advice would help.
