Wow, how helpful are all of you?! Thank you!
To answer your questions:
-It is like sleep paralysis, but I move around. The typical thing that happens is that I see a shadow or something more physical on the wall or the floor and then I sit up with my eyes wide open and wake my hubby up by calling to him to "look!". And when he doesn't believe me, I get annoyed and try to convince him.
-I take vitamin D and try to go out every day. I do live in the Pacific NW though so it's entirely possible that I'm lacking. However, I had the terrors when I lived in Spain prior to the last two years and I'd say I had plenty of sun there. :P
-I very rarely nap. They tend to make me feel groggy, so it's rare that I'll have one.
I probably should have stated this more clearly in my first post, but the thing that's so weird to me is how much worse they get when I'm going Primal. Like, I'll get them once or twice per month if I'm off the diet, but when I go on, I can get them up to 4 times nightly for the first two weeks or so and then about 3 times weekly after that.
So, the only things that have occurred to me is that it has something to do with my blood sugar levels? Or the detox?
