Well, first of all I will try to describe what I understood of it happening, and my experience in this, to let them know it's not so bad. What I understood is that when you dream you, because you you dream a lot, but you do not always agree, well, if you dream that you run, do not run on the bed (exception: Sleepwalking) porqe? because your body does not let you move, then you qieto qedas, now when you're by yourself or you wake up sleeping in my case before going to sleep, I feel that I can not move, just breathe and I'm going to run out of air, but watch TV, listen to and everything, I can hardly speak, it is said that this happens because when you enter the dream, you're half asleep, then your body will "lock" then you stay qieto helplessly, in my case attempt to breathe, until I read that from there you can have lucid dreams, which tried but felt that breathable least after some people say it feels like that pressure and sees shadows, that's because you are entering into a nightmare, not panic, try not to close my eyes, I did not realize they were closed.

The paralysis is perfectly normal and occurs every time the individual is sleeping. It is the natural defense mechanism of the organism to avoid the "physically act out the dreams", which could be harmful and dangerous to the individual sleep (REM sleep without atonia, not sleepwalking occurs in deep sleep stages). Usually not aware that state.

Someone who has experience
"During the attack I know I'm in bed but do not perceive my surroundings. I have my eyes closed and I am aware of my inability to move. Breathe with great effort and I have the impression that the blanket covers her mouth me and I can not help it. I feel a deep anxiety and discomfort. Although I have many years interested in sleep paralysis and have been the first to employ this term in an article, I never thought crossed my head 'this is just an attack of sleep paralysis, I must have patience, will soon'. I seem to expect that relief will occur with the next inhalation, but I'm paralyzed. After half a dozen failed attempts, I feel I'm doing a Herculean effort to breathe and suddenly the spell is broken and I'm fully awake and in full possession of my faculties. "
