I've had this happen to me several times within the last year. I'm not exactly sure why. Sometimes I just finished a dream and my mind was fully alert, capable of hearing all the conversations or sounds around me but i can't move. I can't even open my eyes, and when I try to speak no sound comes out. I've had cases where I can barely move my arms and have brought them to my face in an attempt to wake me up. Other times I am only able to just barely move my feet, trying to create movement to wake. And even though it has happened often, it makes me panic because each and every time I feel like it's something negative.
