Headache is such that it pains even when head is touched or say while she comb hairs.

Dream of paralysis

So just today I had this dream. I was just slept for about 20 mins. When this dream came. But Iam sure i was in sleep. I felt that iam sitting on my bed and suddenly my mind went blank and could not move my any body part just feeling some vibrations all over. Even I couldnt speak, but i was trying to call my roomie to call ambulance but couldnt. My mouth wasnt opening. This was occurring for every 10 seconds all in a dream. But i think as my brain started to realise that it is just a dream when I tried to move a finger it was moving... After dat about five minutes I think I woke up normally but i was so scared. i had this type of dream once before. Sir please tell is it just a dream or a thing to worry about and i should get myself checked?
