I have had full-on sleep paralysis for about 20 years now. It gets real bad sometimes. The feeling like there is something evil around me or holding me down. It can be real bothersome and real scary. Many times I can hear everything around me and sometimes I can see my room clearly, but cannot move. I can say that when I've used opiates, it went away -- probably because of the sedation properties. I have also had the jerking motions during the last stages of withdrawal (mostly when I was on methadone). It does wake you from a sound sleep.
