That happens to me at work all the time, or so my co-workers tell me.

Welcome to the club. You can see a sleep disorder specialist if it starts affecting your life.

It usually becomes worse if you're under stress.

This has happened to me often when I was younger. It was terrifying. I couldn't move a muscle but my mind was wide awake. I couldn't open my eyes, open my mouth, or make a sound.  I kept praying to God please please let me move, I would try to move my toe, my finger, arm anything I couldn't even move my head and I would want to scream the feeling was so horrifying. I was completely awake but my body would not move. Most of the time it only lasted 3-4 min or so (which is a terrifying long time ) but one time it wouldn't stop and I just kept praying to God and trying to calm down and fall asleep so it would end. To end it, I would focus on one arm, or leg, or finger and just will the **** out of it to move move move just a little. This focus seemed for me to end it faster because once I could move one part of my body the 'hold' was instantly released.  I hope this advice helps you. This hasn't happened to me in a long time, but when I was a teenager I can still vividly remember it happening at least 4 times. Once more, terrifying.

Yeah, Sleep Paralysis. I've had the exact same thing happen to me a few times. I felt that if I could just get one part of my body to move or if someone would touch me I could break out of it. Usually I just wound up falling back to sleep after a few minutes. I don't believe i've had this occur for awhile now though. It sounds like the original poster is experiencing the same thing.

That was one theory of how schizophrenia might work although I think it's been mostly disproved.

I zone out and tunnel vision day dream. But not so often any more I remember it being pretty intense when I was younger the sounds that came with it. I don't hear the sound of it any more but then again I got into the habbit of when I noticed it closing my eyes and "refreshing" if you will, so now that I realise it could be important try follow it but I think it's one of the concious aware things, because you know of it, it keeps happening more than normal or none at all.

why is everyone so &^%$ing concerned with "the end"...
new beginnings is what you should be concerned about...

When I'm awake I'm awake; when I'm asleep, I'm asleep. Then there is an in-between state I call "dozing" that is quite nice and not at all frightening and is when I come up with my best algorithms, although when this happens I suddenly become wide awake with excitement.

There is also directed dreaming.  I've played around with it but found it of limited if any use.  About the only thing I do with it is when the dream is getting nightmarish I tell it to stop this or I'll wake up.  The dream tends to obey.
