I first had sleep paralysis (not dx) about 3 years ago...with no other symptoms. Recently (within the past month) I have started to get this buzzing...sound INSIDE my ears and then like a tingling electrical pulse sensation either in my arms or all over my entire body as I first start to doze off. It can happen several times in a night, one night it went on for over 1.5 hr. Always accompanied by what I believe is sleep paralysis and is terrifying. It has also happened several times during the day when I am in just a relaxed state.
I started looking at sleep stages and wondered if anyone else suspects possibly that we are entering stage 2 too quickly. The sleep spindles and the rapid bursts of energy seems very close to what I am feeling.
Does anyone else have any thoughts or ideas?View Thread
