A description of the experience

I'm 23 and about six years ago, I started having an odd episode of night paralysis where I would wake up but not be able to move. I would have to coax myself out because it would feel like I would die or something if I drifted back into my sleep.

The past two years, I have had a few hypnopompic hallucinations. Some examples of them are

1. I saw a big spider on the ceiling that fell on me.

2. A bird flying around in my room,

3. A wasp trying to sting me.

I was even awakened by what I thought was someone shouting in my ear. I would not have the best or most regular sleeping pattern so I'm assuming its something to do with that that's causing them.
