My son is suffering from sleep paralysis. What should I do?

Postby worriedDAD on Thu Aug 09, 2018 9:01 am

For the past week, my son has been suffering from sleep paralysis. I don’t know if this is normal but having to deal with it for how many days is not normal anymore. My 15 year old kid kept on telling me that he’s having nightmares and bad dreams, which I don’t like. I read an article in a foreign site talking about the death of a girl who had a sleep paralysis. Please tell me what should I do. My son is at risk here. Hear me please.

I know it is difficult when someone from family has some health problem. Sleep paralysis occurs when someone has Sleep apnea problem, you need to consult with a clinical psychologist that can help your son to improve sleeping habits to get rid of this problem.
