Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms could be indicative of a sleep disorder, probably a sleep paralysis. However, you need a detailed psychological assessment to make a definitive diagnosis. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further treatment.

Wish you all the best.
