    Horrific Nightmare

    Last night, I had a horrific nightmare that lasted exactly a half hour but felt like it lasted 3 nights. It started off fine but then everything was black and there was loud music playing and pictures on the wall and I was paralyzed and felt like I was seizing over it. I was trying to move but I was just paralyzed. Mind I was still asleep, so it's not sleep paralysis. Anyway, then it flashed into a party, where these two guys came in and were threatening me and my friends. One got in bed with me and fell asleep with me and then while I was laying there, it flashed white, and I was paralyzed again, and horrific pictures kept flashing in and out, like someone being buried alive, a murder, a dead body, a girl with no eyes screaming, and more and this happened and I was paralyzed and horrified, and then it stopped and I explained it to my friends (in the dream still) and as I explained it it happened again. Then my mom came and I tried to explain it to her as well, and then it happened again. When I woke up, I texted my friend and told them about it and my heart started to pump and it felt like a soon to be panic attack. Anyone know what this is? I'm actually scared to fall back asleep.

    Likely a sleep paralysis episode, which actually is not all that uncommon. From your description you are likely safe in letting it go. If this recurs consistently, or you feel overwhelmed by it, then a visit to your doc is in order.

    Definitely sleep paralysis with hallucinations. Incredibly scary with extreme anxiety. Thankfully its not dangerous and many people only experience this once in their lifetime.
