You're right in that there's a lot of conflicting information about it. My feeling is that you're probably having frequent obstructions and arousals, which is causing your brain to get confused about which stage of sleep you're in and forgets to turn on your switch that allows you to move your muscles. If you have any degree of sleep-breathing problems, get that treated.
