What is Sleep Paralysis?

Ok, what is sleep paralysis? I don't know what is the actual term of sleep paralysis in your country. In my country it's called "Ketindihen" (a devil riding your back - sounds weird,rite? ). Well, some of them who link it with a mystical experience said that the sleep paralysis happened because there was a devil who lied down on your body - that's why you could move your body at all BUT ONLY YOUR EYES ! You even couldn't ask for a help (I have tried to scream and it went failed over and over) - moreover, the more you try to ask a help, the more you feel it becomes worse (being panic just make you hard to breath) . Some of them who have been sleep paralysis could hear some Well, fortunately - there wasn't a devil nor a ghost riding my back . It is a sleep disorder which could be explained scientifically. Some experts say that SP happens because there is a sleep malfunction in REM phase . So, when the brain has done with REM and woke you up - but the body hasn't already done with REM! So, the your motoric nerves weren't activated (when we are sleeping, there is a phase where brain inactivates the motoric nerves) , and taraaa.. this was it ... the sleep paralysis! I remember exactly the first time of my sleep paralysis was when I was on the second year of junior high school - and I was in the boarding school. I make this issue into a discussion because recently I have been SP for over 5 times and one of them almost made me into the further phase called Astral Projection (No, no. I'm not going to make this into a new topic.) So, have you ever been Sleep Paralysis? Please feel free to share your experince here !
