Thank you for the reply. I have been watching videos on sleep paralysis
on You- Tube, by professionals and their patients. They describe what I've been expieriencing, exactly. I don't think the video game is causing it as much as the lack of sleep I get on the weekends due to staying up late playing the games, then I get on the computer afterwards and do not get to bed until sometimes 1 or 2 am or later. I'm also famous for waking up early on the weekends so I'm suffering from lack of sleep and being over-tired which goes along with sleep paralysis. I do agree with what you said about the excitement of the game and not moving into sleep fast enough. it totally makes sense. Therefore, Im going to quit playing the game early, get to bed earlier and sleep in a bit the following days after. I'm hoping to see improvement. I'm also on Pristiq
which I've been on for a quite a few years now. The doctors on You-Tube said anti-depressants are sometimes described for sleep paralysis. In my case it doesnt help, unless certain ones are particularly used for that. Again, thanks so much for your response.
