Did you ever find out why this is? I have the same thing and was trying to look it up. I'm a light sleeper at night. I have some apnea, but I'm not on a machine anymore. Plus it's only in the day. I sleep lightly, but do dream at night. And if I wake around 7 or 8 I'm not that deep into sleep. But if I sleep in the day or if I sleep in.its really deep. It doesn't matter if I have slept 3 hours or 10 hours. It's more to do with the time of day. I dream very vivd realistic dreams and I don't move. I wake up feeling as though I have been breathing extremely shallow and cry slowly, if I remain breathing this way, I fall back asleep, however, I wake faster once I take a deep great and get oxygen. Upon waking, I feel as though my body weighs a ton and my limbs are extremely heavy and often numb, up to my torso.
I feel as though I have been sleeping on thee fee of life and death. Its definitely not sleep paralysis. I have that sometimes and know what it feels like. I am on medications that make people sleepy, but I only sleep this way in the daytime. No matter what time I take my medication.
I have had sleep study's done for apnea, but they only do them at night. This happens in the day and I'm not sure I would be able to go in in the daytime and get comfortable enough to sleep in the daytime..
