busyvegetarians Go to hospital. You shouldn't wait so long. Can be his vegetarian transition the cause of the problem? I don't think so, would be interesting to hear what other think about this?.
An please, would be nice to hear what your doctor told you.

Kiwibird08 I've suffered from sleep paralysis since I was a kid. What your describing is NOT sleep paralysis. It sounds like a possible neurological issue and should be investigated immediately.

Shallot I fear that your transition has just unhappily coincided with this getting worse. Unless you were already extremely deficient in all nutrients it would take months for deficiencies to take effect.

Go to a doctor. Soon.

There are a number of treatable conditions that could cause these symptoms but the longer you wait the more potential there is for permanent damage.

It has just been happening way more than normal since my transition.

Gita You should see a doctor. Everyone has sleep paralysis. They usually just don't wake up while they are having it. To me it sounds more like a spinal cord or disk problem.

Marjoram A healthy plant base diet gives you energy and make you healthier, what you are experiencing is a medical issue, please go see your doc asap.

Sleep paralysis is one thing, what you're experiencing is something else altogether. You need to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Shallot If it's happening when you are awake it may be a squeezed nerve. Or possibly epilepsy. Or any number of other issues really ....

Either way you should get this checked out by a doctor. Soon!

I've got sleep paralysis (which is no fun at all) but I don't think it happens when you are already awake.
