A few nights ago, I woke up and my arms were moving all by themselves. o-o It was like the opposite,

Yeah it's happened to me before, and when I get up I get up too fast and momentarily blackout and fall back down.

I've had a few lucid dreams before. I had the most amazing time flying c: and shapeshifiting into animals of my choice. I've never had more fun being a tiger than during those dreams.
I've also had a fair share of night terrors as well.

This happens to me all the time as well. The worst experience was when I was getting attacked by Spider and I couldn't move =D I was half asleep and half awake which led to sleep paralysis. I've read that it's because we're still stuck in REM and it takes a bit to fully wake up. So our body stays asleep, while our brain is the first to fully wake. Scary as hell sometimes...Makes me feel like i'm inside a shell =X

Not entirely, but when I was teaching myself how to walk again sometimes I'd wake up and my left leg wouldn't respond so I'd collapse as soon as I tried to stand up. That sucked. Never been unable to move though.

I hate to bring it back up, but could you possibly answer my questions above Castlewars?
Right now I am not sure if you are serious, kidding, or a troll...
The post seemed so ridiculous to me that I am leaning towards troll.
Strangely enough, when I was sleeping last night, I didn't catch sleep paralysis. I guess it happens when you come out of REM sleep too early.
My worst example of sleep paralysis was when I was under the bed, and gasping for air, only to find I couldn't move a muscle, however hard I tried. I eventually gave up, and ended up recovering.
This post made very little sense to me. Could you explain? I'll help you by asking a few questions.
1. How is it strange that you didn't "catch" sleep paralysis last night? Do you usually "catch" it every night? 2. Is sleep paralysis contagious? 3. Why were you sleeping under your bed?
same here, my head is filled with question marks right now
anyway, i experienced sleep paralysis multiple times, and it's scary as hell, hearing extremely loud noises and seeing things that don't even excist(A.K.A. hallucinating). to snap out of it i always try to move small muscles like your toes etc.
and i've only experienced lucid dreaming once, but as you said earlier, i became overexcited and woke up, never had a lucid dream since
