One of the most unexplored, weird, and rare symptoms of narcolepsy involves sleep paralysis. It’s about facing a serious challenge when trying to move or say something while waking up or vice versa. In most cases, the inability to do anything can be observed during the process of awakening. It is a rather strange, horrifying feeling. Even though such episodes take just several seconds or minutes, they are rather disturbing and terrifying.

Many people get scared being completely paralyzed. If the person is familiar with the case, he or she may be able to take control over it or simply ignore it, knowing that everything will be alright once it passes. It is impossible to call for help as people around do not notice any changes. They believe you’re sleeping. If you know what the rapid eye movement is about and its consequences, you can imagine how sleep paralysis occurs and lasts.
