Yes!
One needs to get to a doctor and tell them.
Don't wait.
Why?

For me, it was a medical condition.
It's better to get a Doctor to say what they think it could be.

Yes. It's a very common thing, your body is paralised while you are sleeping so you don't sleepwalk and hurt yourself, but sometimes your mind wakes up before it wears off. It's probably the source of a great many alien/fairy abduction stories through the ages. It can be linked to dangerous sleep disorders or it can just happen but not mean anything bad.

When I was A child, many times I woke up and was able to hear everything in my environs, but was unable to open my eyes, speak or move. There is a medical term for this by I can't remember it.
Shhh! I was shown a very scary image of what 'sleep paralysis' may look like, and cannot erase it from my mind no matter how hard I try. I have had very real-feeling dreams that felt just like what you've described.

Yes, many times - but I am not technically awake. I am dreaming and know I am dreaming. I'm desperately trying to wake up, but I can't move. It's horrible.
Night terrors?
No idea.
No, but it sounds pretty scary !
by BK
I've heard of sleep paralysis but thankfully, I have not experienced it.
