This has happened to me maybe 4 or 5 times over my life but not for years now. Always when I was in bed and I think just after or just as I was falling asleep. My entire body felt like pins and needles (just like when your foot falls asleep and gets that prickly feeling). The very first time it happened, it felt as though my foot was pulled on and then I felt like I was floating and I was watching myself laying on my bed. The rest of the times, I didn't get the floating feeling, just the pins and needles but it was a scary feeling and I fought to try and wake myself up, trying to pinch myself or shake myself awake. I felt as though I was pinching hard but I couldn't feel it and never had any pinch marks later so I don't think I was actually pinching myself. Eventually the pins and needles slowly went away and I woke up. It hasn't happened for about 20 years now but happened a few times when I was a teenager and once after I was married for about 2 years. Anyone experience this?

No but it sounds like a problem with your blood pressure, it´s not so rare when you are growing, your body changes. Don´t worry if you have not have that problem lately. Check your heart, if you want.

Ya, I'm not worried about it. It's just something I always wondered about and though with the variety and number of people here that someone possibly had heard of it or experienced it, so thought I would ask. Nah, won't get anything checked at this point but if it ever happens again, I will for sure! Thanks!

I dont know if this is the same but sometimes when a part of my body is numb because I am sitting in a position that constricts blood flow, I get the 'pins and needles' poking feel while the numb area comes back to life. <br />
So maybe you could be like in a lucid dream state where your feet might be goign through this and yeah.

It's just like the feet thing you described but it was my entire body, very vividly. Maybe though it was something as simple at that, head turned and resting on a nerve or something. Seems to me each time I was always laying on my stomach. Thanks!

Sounds like sleep paralysis. It's happen to me you wake up and the rest of your body is still asleep (feels numb) and if you're lying face down it feels like someone or something is holding you down
