Hi wseptiaxx,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

If stiffness in your body occurs suddenly while you are sleeping, then this could be a sign of sleep paralysis (sleep paralysis), or what the common people call "sleepiness". This condition actually occurs due to the misalignment of the sleep and wake phases in your body.


During deep sleep, your body goes into a REM (rapid eye movement) phase. Meanwhile, when you wake up, you enter the non-REM sleep (NREM) phase. Depression occurs when your brain is still in REM sleep, but your consciousness has begun to enter the NREM phase of sleep. As a result, you will open up, but your body muscles are still not fully conscious and difficult to move (stiff). There is no clear trigger how this sleep paralysis occurs. However, the occurrence is often triggered by fatigue, stress, or also a consumption of alcohol and drugs.


In addition to sleep paralysis, there may also be various complaints that you experience, ranging from body stiffness, pain, feeling cold, dizziness, and shaking due to other causes, for example:

Vitamin B complex deficiency

Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, memory, and mood)
Viral or bacterial infections, eg chikungunya, dengue fever

Somatoform disorders (physical symptoms that appear triggered or exacerbated by psychological pressure)

Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to rheumatic autoimmune disorders)
Panic attacks, and so on

It is quite difficult to determine the exact condition that underlies your complaint without doing a physical examination directly. Therefore, try to see your doctor directly. Physical examination or further tests, such as laboratories, etc. can be done by doctors to determine the best treatment.


At this time, you should first calm your mind. If there is a problem you are facing, don't think it too complicated, learn to be open with people who you trust can help solve your problem. Also live a healthy lifestyle, namely eating with discipline, exercising regularly 3 times a week, drinking enough, and avoiding smoking and alcohol. Choose clothes that are comfortable and warm so that you don't feel cold.


Hope this helps ..
