This is because on one hand a person is having a shocking experience either prior to sleeping or as he or she starts their day and, on the other side, this is not really something people talk about with one another because of the fear of being seen as “crazy”.
For people who have never read about lucid dreaming this connection would not be possible to make, however it is very clear that when people are having hypnagogic hallucinations(who do not know about lucid dreaming) they report all of a sudden levitating or coming out of their body, floating in the air. The good news is that hypnagogic hallucinations never bring any physical harm to your body by themselves, however, I would argue that since the person can be mentally affected and fall into depression and isolation with the inability to discuss or share then there are indirectly actually harms coming to the physical body from hypnagogic hallucinations (unless of course they are just lucid dreams which are harmless). Individuals that suffer from sleep paralysis experience partial or complete paralysis right before falling asleep or immediately upon waking from sleep. If sleep paralysis wasn’t already scary enough, some patients also experience terrifying hypnagogic hallucinations that coincide with their paralysis. Sleep paralysis and terrifying hypnagogic hallucinations are scary but not life threatening. It is not really clear why people do not naturally see more positive things and rather, instead, have hypnagogic hallucinations which leave them in fear, but in my personal opinion it is the bombardment of all kinds of scary images through movies or the internet or games so there is a bias overload of negative imagery compared to positive ones and it would be logical that the brain spends a lot more energy processing this larger quantity of negative data, so we “see” it more often. It is practically impossible to diagnose if a person is suffering from hypnagogic hallucinations. However, for those suffering from a sleep disorder, a restful night’s rest is anything but the norm.
Individuals with narcolepsy experience excessive daytime sleepiness and can fall asleep instantly and without warning.


These hallucinations typically include an absolutely frightful character that would petrify even the most hardcore horror movie fan.
The scary thing is that according to a study conducted in the UK of a large amount of people (5000) nearly 40% reported having hypnagogic hallucinations. Tests can be conducted in a sleep lab looking for signs of insomnia or narcolepsy which are treatable and very closely related to this condition, however since the causes of hallucinations are so numerous and as there are no devices available to measure these hallucinations the patient is likely to receive a generic treatment of sleeping pills or anti depressants or other anti psychotics.
While everyone is likely to experience insomnia at one point in their life, some people have to deal with strange sleep disorders and can only hope for a full night of sleep. Not everyone that experiences sleep paralysis suffers from these hallucinations and terrifying hypnagogic hallucinations can occur without accompanying paralysis. That is scary and most people wouldn’t think, “Hey, this is a sleep disorder, everything will be OK.” Instead, thoughts would turn to worst-case scenarios like a brain tumor. A seemingly healthy individual goes to sleep and has an unexpected and fatal heart attack, never to wake again.
