What is sleep paralysis?

According to Sleep Foundation, “Sleep paralysis is a condition identified by a brief loss of muscle control, known as atonia.” The site also said hallucinations can occur and are likely with sleep paralysis. “Sleep paralysis is categorized as a type of parasomnia. Parasomnias are abnormal behaviors during sleep.”

Only approximately eight percent of people experience sleep paralysis at some point in their life. For most people, it’s not serious. However, one should seek the advice of their physician if it occurs to rule out any underlying conditions.

Nobody knows exactly what causes sleep paralysis exactly. However, studies indicate that perhaps it’s more common if other family members have suffered from it.
