What's having a paralyzing nightmare?
Have you ever experienced?
When I was young, I often experienced it
Even when I was in high school, I once didn't take part in the P.E. class because my leg got hurt
So I lay down teacher's chair
but as soon as I did that, I got a paralyzing nightmare
So I couldn't wake up when other friends went out
A while after, I could wake up
I don't know. I haven't experienced it before
Once the time comes, I cannot move my body
Also, what I remember is.... the first time I've experienced it
I opened my eyes during my sleep and I could see socks I took off before
but I couldn't move my body...
that was my first memory of the experience
Since then, I had similar feelings when I was in the college
I got paralyzed
but if I lie down again, I got paralyzed again
so I had to do something to fully wake myself up and then go back to sleep
When I had those feelings
I've experienced it very frequently.
but after I grew up, I haven't experienced as often as I've done when I was young
back then, very often.
Couldn't move and I was very scared
Like him, 40~50% of people once experience it in their lives.
Nakjus hasn't experienced but Changyoon has.
Normally, when people wake up or go to sleep, their brains are awake
but their body doesn't move. It's the paralyzing nightmare.
Changyoon has experienced the nightmare he couldn't move
it's already horrifying
if you can have auditory hallucinations or see ghosts
bad memories in the past appear in your mind as if it's a dream
there are some people who even experience those things.
that will be more scary
What I've read on the internet was like...
because my sight is fixed
originally, we cannot see the end side of my sight
that's why if there's light in that part, it's very scary
Can't move your eyes at that time?
yes, I think so
eye sight is fixed?
yes, it feels like that
so, the reason why it happens is...
there are Non-rem sleep and Rem-sleep
Normally, the former is 75%
and the latter is 25% of sleeping
when there's Rem-sleep
Rem sleep is the abbreviation of Rapid Eye Movement.
When you are in Rem-sleep, your pupils move really fast
So when you are in Rem-sleeping, except the pupil muscle and breath muscle, everything is loosened.
Muscle tension completely drops
and breathing becomes irregular
it's what happened during Rem-sleeping
Normally, our dream appears when we are in rem-sleep
we dream when we are in Rem-sleep
So when you wake up at that moment,
normally you can remember what happened
when you are young, almost 50% of sleeping is Rem-sleep
that's why they dream a lot
that's why it's been talked that Rem-sleep is related to nerve growth
when you become 10 years old, Rem-sleep is reduced
and nRem and Rem repeat
when you are nRem, there's a muscle tension
but the tension becomes zero when you are in Rem
it has a period like this and 4~5 times in a day
during your sleep?
nRem and Rem are repeated
when you wake up during Rem-sleep
still, your body is paralyzed
but you have conscious
so you can't move your body
but you can see
pupil can move
maybe you may not breath well too
cause during the Rem, heartbeat and breathing are irregular.
oh, that's why I felt stuffiness
yes, you may feel stuffiness or hyperventilation
that's why you may feel more fear
normally, when you wake up, it's converted to nRem and you can move around
but if you wake up during Rem-sleep, you may have a paralyzing nightmare
Then, was my case that I went straight to Rem right after I got to sleep?
cause the cycle was out of the order?
well, it can be happened once
one time is not a big deal
but as you said, irregular diet or tiredness
yes, it happened often when I was tired
that can be the problem
Or it can be the symptom of Epilepsy or hypnolepsy
if it is repeated too often
he kinda sleeps well all of the sudden.
what's your point?
Let me take a break for a bit
you told us that and crashed
after that, I have insomnia......
right before too
irregular sleep cycle and stress
can be the reason of the syptom
but as I told you before
40~50% of the total population may experience this once
so it's not a big problem
as chanyoon has said,
normally if other people touch or move the tip of your body
or as you can speak, your body can be relaxed
instead of paralyzing nightmare, we call it as Sleep paralysis in psychiatry
one or two times won't be the matter
the solution is keeping sleeping cycle well
manage stress well
or loosen your body well before you sleep
if it is repeated, you'd better meet the expert
Actually, I haven't experienced, so, I was a bit curious what it would be like
I've done a lot of times
but recently, I haven't
cause you are old?
no more dream?
yes, no more hahahahahahahhaa
hahahaha no dream
no dream and no paralysis
Back then, my house had a loft, so, the ceiling was hight
when I was in a college, when I open my eyes
the ceiling was really high and all the lights could come in because every front is glasses
then, when I lay down, there is a second floor
there might be someone staring at me
oh, it's a bit scary
I lived there with him
yes, it was scary
cause it's the end of my eyesight
if you think that there's someone who's looking at, that's very scary
Nakjoon might stare at you
hahahaa shoot a video!!!
anyway, don't worry about this
it's not you being weird
so, don't worry
