asleep but not asleep
Ok so sometimes when I wake up I can hear my tv but I can't really move. I move very slowly and I try and wake my self up. And its really hard to. Sometimes I try to open my eyes with my hands but when it happens but I feel so weak so even doing that is very very hard and most of the time I can't do it. And when I eventually wake up I feel very tired and I fall right back asleep and it just keeps happening. Usually 3-4 times. I'm 13 years young and have no idea what is happening. If it is normal or not. Should I be concerned?

I have this same problem...I haven't seen a doctor for it, but I will suggest you just assume it is hallucination.

You may actually not be asleep, but your mind may be...or you're just hallucinating.

Good luck ♥

My first thought is stress or a panic attack. My 2nd thought would be sleep apnea (you actually stop breathing while you are asleep decreasing oxygen to the brain and decreasing circulation) Both are very much treatable so don't worry. You need to see a doctor though. He may order a sleep study which just means spending a night at the hospital hooked up to a bunch of monitors, it's not a hospital admission, more like staying at a friends for the night.

If it is apnea you will have other symptoms: snoring, always tired, yawning, trouble focusing, falling asleep during the day.
