Sleep paralysis is caused by lack of sleep I think. I think it happens when you are very tired and fall asleep.

I have had SP on several occasions ... and like the OP usually when I have fallen to sleep on my back ... they have happened when I have gone back to bed in the afternoon mostly (which I don't do very often these days) I have suffered with night hallucinations for years. I have to pre-warn anyone I might sleep over with as I scared the life out of my last boyfriend.

I have had injuries from some of the hallucinations too when I have either jumped out of bed in fright and once nearly broke every bone in my fingers and hands when in fright I ended up in a kneeling position on the edge of my bed, fell directly downwards and broke my fall by landing on my fingers... they were pointing downwards so I landed on the tips.... that was so painful and the fingers on my right hand are still out of shape ... that was about 7 years ago!

Night hallucinations are very real at the time and very frightening. I suffered about 2 or 3 a night when I was trying to get my ex husband out of the house and that took 3 months!
