    My brother in law had something similar. He would wake up randomly and his complete left side of the body would be numb/useless. He went to the doctor and they found a tumor in the area behind his ear. He was on meds for it since they dont want to operate on his brain at 18yrs old. The tumor was causing periodic seizures, and a few months back he had a mini seizure while driving and hit a car head on. He's on stronger meds now, and hasnt had symptons since.


    Cliffs: See a doctor

    Maybe you were sleeping on the left side and it fell asleep?

    Sometimes I wake up and can't move due to dreaming.

    cool that your visit turned out fine.

    maybe it's sleep paralysis? deep dish meat pizza? and shouldn't there be some damage if your heart stops for 10 min?

    Could have been a TIA....(mini stroke), symptoms are reversible within 24 hours, most people never know they have had them. See a Dr. to be safe man.
