OK so I used to start to wake up - feel woozy - then I would go paralysed and the night terror would begin - sometimes the noise and feel of vibration in my head - sometimes being attacked and feeling pain as if I was being attacked - sometimes a weight on my chest - feeling really bad pain - trying to call out - then coming round - before my eyes black squiggles like spiders and lots of small balls of light. Then awake.
I had this for 9 years maybe 3 or 4 times a week - really terrifying. Switched from Modecate to Olanzapine and in the last 15 or 16 years I’ve had it maybe 5 times.
If any of you are getting this side effect YOU’RE NOT BEING HAUNTED OR ATTACKED BY DEMONS - IT’S THE MEDICATION.
