I wake up in the night and find myself unable to move. There

Customer Question

I wake up in the night and find myself unable to move. There is numbness, pins and needle, and strange ‘whoosing’ feeling going through my body. I also sense a presence in the house and a feeling of terror. I try to move and start shaking. It has been happening about three times a night recently. But on and off for a while, not nearly as frequent
Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I haven’t seen the doctor yet. I’m taking mirtazapine and quetiapine for bipolar disorder
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: There are times in the day where I seem to enter an dream like state. Feel a lot of confusion, agitation, strange dejavu type feelings, and brain fog. But I suspect this is down to stress and anxiety
Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: About six years. Lack of sleep makes things worse,exhaustion,stress at work, if I drink a lot of caffeine

One thing you can try is to have an exorcist come to your home and try to help.

In addition I would suggest you consult with your GP for a full exam and, if indicated, some blood work. You might also need to spend a night in a sleep lab and have an EEG to check out your brain waves.

Does this make sense to you?
