At one point I was happening a couple of nights in a row and I didn't know wtf was causing it so I checked the internet and found it was due to me sleeping on my back. As soon as I fixed that, it hasn't happened apart from the very rare occasion where I lean over in my sleep and end up on my back for ages. Normally I am on my side or chest down.
Yeah, I read that. Sleeping on your back causes it. I try sleeping on my stomach, but sometimes I'll roll over on my back subconsciously without noticing. I suppose my body is used to that position of sleep. Apparently, if your very tired that also causes it.

i still get em from time to time but i learned how to deal with it by pickin up pointer from this lounge (theres a few sleep paralysis threads here already) and the net.

when i get it i let it ride. struggling and yelling wouldnt help. then if it gets a little too much i try wiggling my toes, thats when you start to regain physical movement then i snap out of it
True, it's better to just stay calm. Struggling only prolongs it. I'll try wiggling my toes if it happens to me again. Thanks for the tip.

Yeah, it felt like something was glaring at me. It was probably the scariest experience of my life. I seriously thought I was going to die.

As for the evil presence & everybody experiencing it, maybe it has to do with how the darkness is always associated with evil things. Probably once you're conscious your imaginations starts remembering things from when you were younger & afraid of the dark. Monsters, Ghosts, Demons etc
