http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis anyone ever had this recently? I did last night! I'd come downstairs last night as couldn't kip so fell asleep on settee. It's a weird sensation as you honestly feel like someone is on your back holding you down and you can't move! I even tried to shout but couldn't as I felt muffled. It happened a couple of years ago too and lasted longer. This time I didn't know exactly when I was asleep or awake but I made myself shut my eyes to chill and then woke myself up properly real quick. it's bloody scary at the time as you feel a presence yet feel helpless all due to the paralysis! Bruce out!
