Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your symptoms can be related to many medical conditions. More details are needed to help me through the diagnosis.
Are you conscious during these episodes of paralysis?
Do you suffer from any other medical conditions such as epilepsy?
Are these symptoms sporadic or continuous?

I will be waiting for your response to be able to help you better.
Hope I have answered your query.
