    Ouch. When I wake up with dead arms it's usually just one, cut off blood flow. I have a friend who passed away a few years back, and he fell asleep on his arm drunk. His arm remained mainly numb, it never recovered.

    "Saturday night Palsy"
    is explained here

    https://www.vox.com/2016/6/6/11854588/numb-arm-sleep

    "
    Someone who falls asleep on a limb is unlikely to do major damage to the nerves, Dyck says. But there are some cases when compressed nerves can become a greater problem.

    One such case is called "Saturday night palsy," when a person falls asleep compressing a nerve while drunk. The alcohol impairs your body's ability to wake you up and protect your nerves."

    Yes I still get it. Twitching my toes and trying to move like a dolphin is how I get out of it.
    It is not instant, I have to be patient.
    Sometimes I feel a rush, adrenaline possibly, vagus nerve is in involved.
    The exact mechanism I would have to look up.

    You can do both, your brain wakes up or it doesn't. Feeling like something is wrong and you need to get out OR you just need to wake up from wherever you are, which is not necessary in your home/bed.

    It could be a side effect of medication perhaps?

    Doesn't sound healthy.

    Your experience sounds similar to my discomfort. But there were two of me. My unresponsive lump of meat and bones body, and my soul. They acted independently.

    I had no way of twitching my toes, nothing.

    After my left arm started to respond, the rest of my body started to respond, sounds identical to your experience in a way, but have you left your body during any of these experiences? What part of you is not frozen? You know the bit that inspires you to move your toes?

    I think the problem here is trying to explain a natural event using a supernatural explanation.

    Agreed.

    Well put.

    We'll all experience it.

    Had it since I was a kid so pre any medication I had since or take now.
    No its just way of getting out of it, waking myself up.
    My toes seem to be the first thing I can move.

    Anything unexplained was given a supernatural cause if you go back far enough.

    This painting is from 1781.

    The inability to take a proper breath was put down to devils sitting on your chest.

    Nice!

    I would of preferred if you had a stab at my questions to you.

    My comment to James was more flippant, as there seems to be a distinct lack of original thought on sciforums these days.

    I left my body, I could breath easily, I walked(or floated, in one experience) easily.

    I'm still not sure if you even left your body?

    Nasty.

    Science explains my 2 experiences up to sleep paralysis, anything over that is personal fact, but faith to science.

    This sentence is unparsible. Restate?

    What questions? You asked about medications? It is not that.
    I have never seen myself lying there but I cannot remember every time it happened.

    I wondered if you left your body is all.

    Doesn't seem like you did.

    Good luck with this sleep paralysis condition.

    Basically science can explain my condition after I left my body, sleep paralysis. It can't explain me floating a few inches above my body, or floating in the night.

    Dave, what about the out of body experience whilst driving?
    "I was down the South coast of England, driving at night. With no warning or reason I can think of, I was 200 ft above my car watching myself drive".

    Very different foghorn. I had no discomfort re-entering my body.

    Weird. If it starts to happen a lot I would get your Mrs to drive.
    Science cannot explain a lot of things right now.
    However, history has taught us that they do an ok job.
    What questions are unanswered compared to 500 years ago? 200?
    What explanations were offered prior to a scientific treatment?

    Let's go basic. Disease is caused by? First century?
    1600s?
    1900s?
    2023?
