Getting stuck in sleep. Is this not all?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I know that sounds confusing and it's really hard to explain. But just recently I've been getting this thing as I'm waking up where I'm suddenly yanked back into sleep and my head goes to one side as if someone has grabbed and pinned it there under their hands. Along with this this I can't breathe, or move my head at all and my fingers twitch quite fast. If I try to open my eyes I get like this electrical crackling sort of sound and they close again and feel really heavy.

It's not the same as sleep paralysis where my whole body is paralysed, it's more like my head and neck area. I know this sounds completely bizarre but it's really scaring me. What could this be? Had anyone ever had similar experiences, how do you deal with it?
