If you’re a fan of fashion, fashion icons and fashion statements, then definitely you know the famous model Kendall Jenner. Born on November 3, 1995, American model and tv personality, Kendall Nicole Jenner stunned the world of fashion for her captivating beauty, remarkable body and phenomenal fashion statements. She is one of this generation’s finest personalities.
She originally appeared in E! Reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. From beauty, body, money and fame; name it, she got it all. One may wonder what wrong could ever happen to her life. Well, there is one thing she’s really, really afraid of. During last Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashian, she revealed that one night she woke up and can’t move. What she experienced is called sleep paralysis.
She said that literally, she thinks that she won’t be able to move anymore. She can’t do anything about it and she’s freaked out. She told her mom that it felt like her heart stopped and the sleep paralysis is feeding her anxiety about travelling.
Dr. Harneet Walia of the Cleveland Clinic Center said that sleep paralysis is a very real thing and can happen as you are falling asleep or waking up. It is the feeling of being conscious but you’re unable to move. You will feel as if you’re paralyzed, making your limbs immovable. The paralysis occurs between the stages of wakefulness and sleep.
You may not be able to move or speak for a few minutes. The experience is very terrifying and you’ll wish you’ll never have to sleep again. Fortunately, this may only last for a few minutes and is not dangerous. About 7% of people experiences sleep paralysis at some point in their lives. Though it is common for people suffering from narcolepsy, it could also be because of lack of sleep or irregular sleep patterns, said Dr. Walia.
There is no treatment for this kind of paralysis. However, there are ways that you can do to prevent it from occurring such as getting enough sleep, eliminating caffeine before sleep, drinking milk and sleeping on your side.
