I'm new to this website so bear with me. So I don't suffer with sleep paralysis, I don't know if that would change anything at all?
Last night I was in bed lights off etc and I was half awake but I could feel that I wasn't alone. So while I was laying there I could feel a big weight on my chest and it was kind of a struggle to sit up or anytime that I moved. But I didn't think anything of it and then I felt a weight on my throat. I could still breathe but it just felt like a light pressure, kind of like the way a scarf would feel. And then I started to feel a weird pain just under my rib cage and then on my hip. It felt I was being poked and prodded. Eventually the poking stopped but the "cramp" on my rib cage stayed.
This isn't the first strange thing that's happened. A few weeks ago the alarm on my iPod dock station, which is currently unplugged, had gone off and then another time when my cd player had randomly started playing a song. Some days I would smell perfume in my home and it would smell the strongest around my bed or sometimes I would smell it beside me and I don't normally wear perfume due to my job.
Today I also had a short encounter where I was closing the store and so I had gone to clean up a shelf when I saw a black shadow from the corner of my eye bend down and this shadow stuck out like a sore thumb. At first I thought it was one of the girls that was closing with me but quickly realized that she was at the front (editor interpretation) and I was towards the back of the store...
Anyway I could really use whatever advice on what this is and if I should be worried or not
