Our expert says:
You are suffering from sleep paralysis, which occurs when you are in a semi-conscious state, ust before you fall asleep. This is normal and you should calm yourself and fall asleep. Do not jump up, as this will cause postural low blood pressure and you can injure yourself, as the low blood pressure can cause you to loose consciousness and fall. Please do not be afraid. Consult your doctor if you are experiencing severe stress, as he/she can give you medication as a temporary measure to alleviate your stress.
