the first time i did that i was prolly 16 and i seriously thought my arm was dead and i was gonna have to get it amputated.
i hate when that happens i try to make real sure i sleep on my back 'cause it used to happen to me almost every night when i was a teenager. ...well so did spontaneous erections so maybe i'm outta the woods.

Called a Lucid Dream
found this on a site....
A lucid dream is a when we’re awake and alseep—both at the same time. In your case though, you are feeling the paralysis of your body that occurs each night during REM (dreaming) sleep. And it’s not too comfortable a feeling!
Have you ever thought about why we don’t move around in our sleep, and act out all the dreams we have? It’s a good question, because we all move around a lot in our dreams. We run, we jump, we go swimming, we talk with our friends... Just about everything we do in waking life, we do in dreams. (And then some!)
The reason we don’t act out our dreams (get out of bed and go running around...), is because our bodies are paralysed. We think we’re moving in a dream, but all the commands from our brains actually are intercepted before they can reach our bodies—at a place called the “reticular formation”—at the top of our spinal cords.
In your lucid dream, you’re awake in your head, but your body’s still asleep! This is why you feel like something is “holding you down,” and it’s also why you can’t speak when you try to. Your body is paralyzed! The reason why you sometimes can see blue figures in your room, or hear buzzing sounds, is because you’re drifting back and forth between waking and dreaming.
Everyone gets spooked by “sleep paralysis” dreams. The good news about them is that no one has ever been permanently paralysed, and they usually only last about twenty to thirty seconds. In fact, once you get used to them, they can even be kind of fun. If you can concentrate on having some cool dreams while you’re “half awake” and “half asleep,” you’ll be a full fledged lucid dreamer. Awake—inside a body that’s still sleeping!

Funny thing, Vanilla sky was just on and they were talking about him being in a lucid dream.

Yep I had one of those. What made it particular scary was I dreamth I was being physically restrained. Then I woke up staring at the ceiling thinking Jc thank god that was just a dream, I'll just nip down stairs for a drink of water.
I went to get up but it was like I was stuck to the bed. I had to keep saying to myself it was just a dream move arm move. It was quite a relief when I was finally able to get up.

Yeah, it is really freaky, I couldn't move my arm at all.

i have lucid dreams quite often. it really sucks because whenever i have them, i am awake but i can't move and beine paranoid already, i always think that someone is trying to break into my house. i keep a gun close by at all times (back to the paranoid thing), but i can't move so the **** thing does me no good.
i have actually had a girl next to me and could hear her breathing...

What about when u wake up 15-20 times in the night, each time dreaming but falling back to sleep almost immediately. The fact that you've been dreaming the whole time (it seems like that anyway) make you think you've been under longer than you have then u look at your watch and only 20-30 mins have. Has happened too me maybe 15-20 times in the last few years. Weird thing is I am always super refreshed the following day when I get up. Would this be categorized as lucid dreaming as well.
