Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
From the description of your symptoms it appears that you are having a condition called "sleep paralysis". This is a type of sleep disorder, specifically called an REM sleep disorder
. It is not dangerous at all but the experience can often be very frightening and cause a lot of distress to the person.
Sleep disorders are precipitated by stress, poor sleeping habits, alcohol or drugs, and sometimes due to psychiatric medication. You have mentioned that you have anxiety
, and these disorders are often associated with sleep abnormalities. So, I would suggest that you consult a psychiatrist
for a detailed evaluation and further management.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
