Our expert says:
Sleep paralysis is really frightening when it happens, but is not dangerous at all. Generally we would nopt try to treat it.
However, if you are falling asleep at inappropriate times during the day as well, then you could have narcolepsy, and in that case the sleep paralysis is considered part of the condition. That would need some medical attention.
Otherwise, the condition is a nuisance, but not serious in any way.
