It’s certainly a weird and frightening experience. I’ve had it several times when I was younger, once in a strong of month-long episodes where it got to the point that I was scared to sleep, knowing what awaited me.
Most of the experiences I could hear things, feel things. For example, I heard something almost demonic laughing at me, and felt the pressure of something on my body, and holding me down. I’ll also add that I felt something grab my tongue as I tried to call out for my parents, and something like a claw against my throat.
I can remember this all vividly, it was no dream for sure and lasted several minutes. At other times I remember seeing a creature – green, giant eyes, glowing almost in the dark, and looking at me as I lay in bed, just curious…or hungry.
Most of my experiences were like the first one though, over and over again. I haven’t had it in a long time, thankfully, but I’ll never forget it.
