    I have had this happen to me once as well. When it happened I think I had been asleep for awhile but I am not sure anymore lol. Somehow I was trapped under water, I could not breathe, I could not move, I felt my chest ache wanting air, my arm muscles were contracted as hard as they could. Finally something happened and nearly launched out of bed. I was sweating like crazy and gasping for air. Scared the living daylights out of me. I think it has to do with sleeping on your back too because that is the position I was in at the time. Luckily, it has not happened since.

    Wow, this is a neat topic! I've never experienced sleep paralysis-thank God, but i know many people that do and they say if they say a prayer it usually snaps them out of it. 'I've heard sleep paralysis referred to as 'the devil riding your back' anyone else ever heard of such?
    The people that i know who have experienced it says it's like an evil presence standing over them and they can't scream, move or anything! I do recall them saying that it mainly happens if they sleep on their back.
    Next time it happens try saying a prayer and see if it works.
    Good luck and God bless.
