No lie. The exact thing happen to me a couple of years ago. I remember not being able to move and closing my eyes, then when I reopened them, nothing there. I still am very freaked out about it.
i have had that happen many times, but not exactly like that. it's a temporary complete paralaysis as you awake. it's extremely scary. i'm told it's not entirely uncommon.
