Sleep paralysis

It's annoying when it happens. I get it through sleeping on my back, once per month if I sleep on my back, which is why I sleep on my side, which causes me to fet neck aches.

With the one I had last night, I had a pins and needles over my head and back, today my head back and shoulders feels tingly. As usual I feel tired, anxious for no reason and quite down.

Has anyone here got it? Or know if it's possible to rid of it?

I've only had sleep paralysis once and it terrified me. I was half asleep and I couldn't move a muscle. I thought I was drugged and about to be kidnapped (one of my semi irrational fears). Luckily after a little while longer I fell back into nightmares but didn't think I was being kidnapped. As for your sleeping situation I suggest you try memory foam pillows to help your neck. My Pillows are also good too. Hope this helps 😊
