Are “they” pressing you in the night?
Do you suddenly wake up not being able to move? Before you run for deliverance, before you give testimony in church, read this…
You might not be possessed
You may just have sleep paralysis.
When we dream, our body switches off the ability to move so that we don’t injure ourselves acting out the dreams
When we wake, that ability is switched on.
But sometimes the switch get problem, and we wake up paralysed.
This is terrifying, imagine being awake but not able to move.
You’re more likely to have sleep paralysis:
If you sleep on your back
If you’re not getting enough sleep
If you’re stressed or depressed
Or you have a sleep disorder
Sometimes genetics are implicated…
Here are a few ways that may help prevent sleep paralysis
1. Get enough sleep
2. Avoid caffeine just before bed time
3. Avoid noise or lights.
4. Pay attention to your mental health
Some drugs can be used to prevent or manage sleep paralysis
These drugs can reduce the REM sleep which is where most of the incidences occur.
Talk to your doctor
In other cases, if someone suddenly wakes up gasping for air, or run to a window. it may not be sleep paralysis, but may occur when the lungs are filled with fluid
This can happen in Heart failure, and becomes better if the person sits upright for a while.
