I'm pretty sure it's related to the hormones that regulate sleep. The body releases mild paralytic hormones that are designed to keep you from sleepwalking, it's theorized that a deficiency in these contributes to somnambulism. Too much and you get temporary waking paralysis.

I have had sleep paralysis since I was 5. and it happend at least once a month. I would get so scared that I would stay up at night which would make it more likley to happen but when I went Gluten-Free it didn't really happen. I think there might be a connection.

First time in years. Ugh, shivers as i think about it. I was like "is this what i think it is?".

Hope you have a restful night tonight - scary stuff.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

I've never had this happen to me until my recent hospital visits related to celiac disease. It is now a recurring thing despite being gluten-free for nearly two weeks. It's very scary and I'm finding that I'm totally sleep disturbed since this has all been going on. I've been awake the majority of nights for days on end after gluten attacks. I feel like I'm in a nightmare sequence. I'm awake with panic and shortness of breath truly afraid that if I fall asleep that I will die. When I finally start to dose, the paralysis sets in while I'm still awake. it's very scary.

Yes, I have had this happen a number of times in my life. It is terrifying!
I didn't read the link you posted, but one thing I have read in the past (and that has helped me avoid this) is that it occurs more frequently when you sleep on your back. I have no idea why this is the case, but changing your sleep position might help. I'm not a back sleeper usually, but every time it has happened to me that I can recall, I was sleeping on my back at the time.
