I feel like everything inside me is shaking real fast. and I have audio and visual hallucinations, when I realize that I'm having one of these attacks, the hallucination stops, and I am aware of what is happening, and try to wake up. But I can't break out of it, and I get scared, thinking I'm going to die! Then I think, If I could just open my eyes, move some part of my body, a finger, even, or yell out for help, that It would stop but I cannot move and everything in my body feels like I'm… read more
Going with it is good advice. It's difficult to do if you are a person who likes to be in control. Narcolepsy has a way of forcing a person to be more easygoing and accepting that there are some things that are out of our control.
I experience the same exact thing & it's so scary! I have an easier time now that I'm older pulling myself out of it but it's still really hard sometimes it's like I try so hard to move some part of my body especially my eyes but it's like my eyelids are so heavy that it takes every bit of strength I have in me to even slightly get them open and then by the time I do come out of it I feel exhausted & terrified to the point where I dread even going back to sleep because it usually happens again. Everyday that I wake up I feel like crap I'm more tired when I wake up than I was when I went to bed literally and my entire body hurts like I've been hit by a truck and it last through part of the day until I start moving around then it gradually subsides. I never ever have woken up feeling good or refreshed but when I was younger it was so much worse I used to have a lot of hallucinations visual mainly and I would always see something really scary and I would have the most creepy feeling the whole time but I would just have to deal with it until I was able to get out of it cuz I couldn't control anything but it was something that made me feel like there was something seriously wrong with me or that I was crazy or that there was some type of evil presence around me every time I went to sleep because I would literally see this demon creature sitting at the edge of my bed with red eyes and I would be so terrified but I couldn't move or scream out so I would just remain there shaking and scared until it was over God I hated my teenagers LOL
