Sleep paralysis is a parasomnia or an undesired event that is associated with sleep. It happens just after falling asleep or upon awakening in the morning, in the time between waking and sleep. Episodes are often accompanied by hypnagogic experiences, which are visual, auditory, and sensory hallucinations.

These occur during the transition between sleeping and waking, and they consistently fall into one of three categories:

~ Intruder: There are sounds of doorknobs opening, shuffling footsteps, a shadow man, or sense of a threatening presence in the room.

~ Incubus: Feelings of pressure on the chest, difficulty breathing with the sense of being smothered, strangled or sexually assaulted by a malevolent being. The individual believes they are about to die.

~Vestibular-motor: A sense of spinning, falling, floating, flying, hovering over one’s body or another type of out-of-body experience.
