I've recently suffered with sleep paralysis, it's only happend once so far but since i have been having trouble
falling asleep as i had it when i was falling asleep. I already know a regular sleep pattern can help prevent it but as im very anxious when i try and sleep. Would it be a good idea to use herbal sleep tablets or something like that to get back into my normal pattern?
I don't know how to prevent it, sorry. It occurs where your body is in the phase of being paralyzed during sleep and you wake up prematurely which you're not supposed to. I would say it sounds like you have a case of insomnia for some reason if you started having trouble falling asleep after having trouble staying asleep.
Yer it has, I had a very busy winter break so my sleeping patterns wernt regular at all cos i was staying up late alot. As for stress im in my final year of my A-levels so my exams are coming up this year. Now im back at school my sleep patterns are regular but probably not best they could be. I havent had another episode yet.
Thankyou for your advicce :)
