    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Spiritual attack? Maybe. Lucid dreaming? Sure. Are you enjoying the experience? If not, go to a doctor and ask for a sleep study. Sounds like your body isn't regulating sleep cycles properly. Some people who are artists enjoy the weirdness, but it gets old; plus you may start losing muscle control during your waking hours, which could be dangerous if you're driving, say, or carrying a baby.

    It can be controlled with medication and some adaptation in your habits. Don't just decide to "live with it"!

    Dear Sgt_majorette,

    Thank you for that great advice. You definitely should see a sleep expert and get checked out if you think you may have a sleep disorder. Here is some information on Narcolepsy Symptoms for anyone who is interested.

    Yours in health,
