Common Questions and Answers about Sleep paralysis causes pain


Avatar m tn Also. I do not have any chest pain..eye pain..or any other pain besides that pain in my head. I have not gotten a catscan or mri done. Im afraid even if i do.. They will come back normal and I will still have these strange fazes.
Avatar n tn Ofcourse it could be something as simple as anemia or low sugar or disturbed sleep pattern or just stress. Sleep studies too should be done. Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with his doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn he is afraid to shower that he might fall and cannot walk more than a short distance before the pain comes back, and the threat of falling haunts him. he is on a pain killer that he says doesnt work and he only takes them at night, to help him sleep but doesnt. I believe the name is hypocordone. what can we do.
Avatar m tn My migraine episodes usually lasted for 20 minutes to 2 hours and almost always went away with sleep. Both anti-migraine medicines i tried at the time had negative side effects (slurring of speech, incoherent thoughts and feelings, vivid nightmares). I never determined that actual cause of the migraines, though stress was often suggested. As for my current problems. On August 19th at just after midnight, my lower right lip went numb, as though i had just received Novocaine.
Avatar f tn they were loud grunts and groans. I could not speak. My mind was racing with the fear of paralysis, the crushing pain in my lower arms and hands from total contraction, and finally the words were in my head only, not really coming from my mouth. I don’t know actually how long this lasted, it seemed like an eternity. I eventually could push some movement into my fingers. They slowly began to unfurl. I still could not get up from the floor, but I could communicate somewhat.
Avatar m tn I have been searching for a diagnosis for years and years with no luck. For about 9 years I have had crazy episodes of sleep paralysis. They usually happen when I first wake up and I cant move anything. Sometimes I manage to get my left eye open but my right feels stuck, everything feels stuck. Nothing will move. It usually happens when I am in a deep sleep and get woke up. ok so here is where it gets different, I dont hallucinate but these episodes can last for an hour or more.
Avatar f tn I know that infections, even viral ones can cause phrenic nerve paralysis by means of irritating the nerve.....Maybe that is what your pain was, some sort of viral infection that led to this. I am not sure about the motor neuron or MS connection, I just know that there are many causes for a paralyzed diaphragm.
Avatar f tn That strange time of the night It’s during this phase of falling asleep that several unusual phenomenon may take place. For example we discussed in a previous article the various sleep paralysis experiences people have. Those often come with bizarre or frightening hallucinations, or even out-of-body experiences. Luckily there’s nothing to be worried about – hypnic jerks along with these other phenomenon are not dangerous.

Avatar n tn I'm a 60 year old men, in excellent health, except for experiencing tremors during sleep that wake me up and have difficulty going back to sleep. As I start to fall sleep again, I feel these "rumbleling" (tremors) around my upper body. I immediately wake up again. These tremors last for about 10-15 seconds after I wake up. The first time I experienced this condition was exactly two years ago. It lasted for about four days and it simply went away.
604197 tn?1292308636 I like some of you should be thankful since they did have to bring me back from beyond and this is my only current problem with the exception of the pain from the still fractured ribs. But with that said it is still a frustration. I have already lost 15 pounds and can not lose anymore since I am too thin. But I wanted to thank everyone that has posted to this since it shows me that I am not crazy and others are suffing through the same thing and i am not alone.
Avatar n tn Hanging my arm off the side of the bed causes feeling to return in about a minute. A couple of beers at night also seems to make the problem worse. My doctor says its the way I position my hands while I sleep that is the cause of my problem. What is your opinion? Thanks.
Avatar n tn use of EOG traces shows that eye movement is still possible during such episodes.When there is an absence of narcolepsy, sleep paralysis is referred to as isolated sleep paralysis (ISP). The paralysis may be accompanied by terrifying hallucinations (hypnopompic or hypnagogic) and an acute sense of danger. Sleep paralysis is particularly frightening to the individual because of the vividness of such hallucinations.

Avatar n tn My legs and sometimes arms tingle with kind of an electric sensation, which makes me very restless when I'm trying to sleep. I frequently wake up with Sleep Paralysis, but it usually comes in spurts. Like I may be paralyzed when I wake up 5 times in a row one night, and not at all the next. Sometimes the paralysis is accompanied by a panic attack. Intense electric sensations going through my whole body.

Avatar dr m tn Plus you'll be always tired, no matter how long you sleep. So the next time you go to sleep, think about your sleep position, and which position you tend to wake up most often. If you developed a habit of sleeping on your back for whatever reason (your grandmother told you it was healthy, or your dermatologist told you to do so to reduce facial wrinkles), go back to sleeping on your stomach or side, or whichever is more comfortable.
Avatar m tn Most just find their health and their life deteriorating over time. The sleep study involves no pain. No needles. It is a royal pain to try to sleep all wired up, but not painful. Just consider it an investment in your health and your future. You seem very detail oriented, so I'm thinking you will be fascinated with so many details the report will give you. Ask your doctor for a copy to peruse as much as you are interested. Just do it.
Avatar f tn I feel you might be having sleep paralysis, which occurs when you may go to sleep or may tend to wake up from sleep. It is a temporary phenomenon where you are incapable of moving your body or even part of it physically but keep trying to shout loudly or seek someone’s help. It may be lasting for a few seconds to minutes. There is no physical injury to body, but you will be probably frightened with sweating and increased heart beat with shortness of breath.
Avatar f tn Lucid dreams, stress and sleeping in supine position are the main causes of sleep paralysis. You are definitely suffering from some sleep disorder other than sleep paralysis. If you get up in middle of night, it can be also be due to sleep apnea. Loss of memory etc are due to incomplete sleep. Please consult a sleep specialist and get sleep studies done. Take care!
Avatar f tn I often wake up feeling as my skin is burning on fire and since it feels like it, I dream that I've been caught on fire. I've also experienced Sleep Paralysis many times and it is Not a pleasant experience. It's just so crazy that I gave birth without a scream or anything more than slight grunts... but this painful body I have now gets so intense that there is no holding back the tears, not screaming, etc. The pain is just too intense to withstand.
Avatar m tn The docs at first thought I had sleep paralysis and then they ruled that out and said it was sleep starts. I had three sleep studies done but I didn't experience this issue on two of them. The third study when I had this episode occur it was a mild one and no proof of physical movement. Sleep has been a nightmare for myself and I never look forward to sleep because of this problem.
Avatar m tn And as mentioned above narcoleptics can experience sleep paralysis and cataplexy. IH does not have symptoms of sleep paralysis or cataplexy. The medication for both is the same and only treat the symptoms not the cause. OK, so now I have 2 sleep disorders and both are being treated. But I am still so tired ... Back to the sleep doctor I go. Her comment was "there is a difference between sleepiness and fatigue." That was the end of appointment.
Avatar f tn I cant stand to bend my neck in the chin to chest movement,it causes circulation cut off and i hear extreme high pitch ringing in my ears or i can hear the blood rushing thru my brain.I have problems with my shoulder blades feeling like they are being crushed together.

Avatar f tn In your condition the chronic pain which is very difficult to diagnose and treat properly as it will take long term to reverse the pain as it is due to neuropathy and referred pain. Whiplash injury causes complete paralysis in patients and this is a difficult proposition for any neurosurgeon to inflict a painful, risky surgery on the patient where the disadvantages far outweigh advantages.
Avatar f tn did u sleep? Why not? when did you sleep? During day? if you see a pain med doctor I pray he asks specific questions about bowel habits, any new prescriptions, med suggestions,new doctors? tests? Then..... After a few weeks or months you will know a few new things about yourself that you did not realize! ....I found out I was not compliant with my meds, I was having withdrawal symptoms and didn't even know it! ..
Avatar n tn I said that it seems to me an adrenaline rush from the pain causes the seizure its his bodies way of dealing with the pain. I really think that all the Dr.s who say this is normal or say there is nothing wrong are crazy. It is not safe or healthy to have seizures for any reason. I was wanting to know if anyone else has more than one seizure caused by pain?
