Sleep paralysis

Hi there,
For roughly 17 years, sodium valproate has been controlling my epilepsy diagnosis. I've been experiencing "sleep paralysis" for several months! The experience of "sleep paralysis" has been awful for me, especially when it occurs multiple times in a single night. However, the symptom gets more severe when I consume caffeine (even a cup in the morning).
Have you experienced this condition? Is there any relationship between my disorder and sleep paralysis?

  1. I found this article on our site that I hope helps in regards to this:
