Please read this if you have time to do so………
”Old Hag’ Syndrome is a terrifying sleep disorder that many people suffer from. Also known as ‘sleep paralysis’, sufferers often wake up in the middle of the night, unable to move or scream, but able to see, hear, feel and smell.
It is often accompanied by strange smells, frightening sounds, apparitions of shadows or people, and a weight on the chest, making breathing difficult if not impossible.
It is caused by the hormones, which keep us paralysed while we sleep and thus preventing us from acting out our dreams, not ceasing function immediately when you wake up
It usually only lasts up to a minute.
I’ve had this happen twice in my life, even happened recently and it is honestly the most horrifying thing that I have ever experienced.
If you’ve experienced this, please share your experience”!
