Sleep paralysis

I have been having sleep paralysis since quite some time. It has got worse, can't sleep with the lights off. I also have various hallucinations when I'm experiencing sleep paralysis. It's very disturbing cause it seems so real and I can't move a muscle. It sometimes happens 2 or 3 times in one night. Please let me know if this comes under your speciality and if you can help me out. Thanks in advance.

Meditation-Relaxation Therapy seems like the most logical intervention for sleep paralysis. It should help you manage an episode while you are having one. Additionally working on your over all well-being including stress reduction & sleeping habit management should reduce the frequency. Any competent psychologist or psychiatrist should be in a position to help you here.
