Frequently this may be associated with nightmares. These may represent deeper emotional conflicts or unresolved issues from the past. Progressive muscular relaxation before sleep will help much. Talk to a counsellor to identify and sort out these.

Sleep paralysis is a normal physiological phenomenon. Normalisation and understanding it is enough to decrease your anxiety. See a psychologist for sleep hygiene
