I'm curious if this has ever happened to anyone else or if anyone knows what it might have been? (see details)
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?
