Question: My daughter has been taking meds for seizures for 2 years. A new neurologist has suggested she may actually be experiencing sleep paralysis. However, in reading some of these stories, I do not see anyone mention not being able to speak coherently after coming out of it, which leads me to believe that she is having a seizure and not sleep paralysis. We have not had the money to spend on a sleep study in the hospital for a definite diagnosis of what is going on, so we are guessing. So my actual question is: Do people with sleep paralysis have trouble speaking when coming out of an episode?
