sleep paralysis or apnea or something like that?

hi my name is gary im 26 and for a long time of my life i have been having some very strange experiences either as im falling asleep during and or as im wakeing always when i am laid on my back. It normally starts with me hearing a whooshing or a pulsating sound that leads into my body getting a sensation (BUT NOT PHYSICALLY MOVING) of rocking back and forth from head to toe not side to side, at this point the whooshing and rocking are happening in sync and speeding up to the point of feeling like a vibration running thru my whole body.when this is happerning i can hear and see everything around me as if my eyes are open although my girlfriend has told me my eyes were shut.many times i also experience physical body twitches and very often although i conscientiously try to wake my self or move my body this is very difficult or impossible to do.somtimes i feel as if i am getting up and standing then i feel as if i am being pulled back down to my laying positoin yet during this whole time i have not actually moved, then all these symptoms stop imediately and i am awake often i have the feeling of deja vu during these experiences along with other sensations that happen from time to time. can anybody tell me what may be happening thanks

Hey Gary!

Well without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include nutrient/ micronutrient deficiencies, obstructive sleep apnoea, sleep disorders, a few neurological conditions etc. I would suggest considering an initial detailed evaluation by an internist and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
