One of the symptoms observed in Covid-19 patients with the Omicron variant is a sleep disorder, which in some cases can lead to sleep paralysis.
 
The French territory, infected with the Omicron variant of Covid-19 for several weeks, has seen new symptoms appear. The new variant, which is less severe but more contagious, is causing unusual infection records, higher than in previous waves. These symptoms include sleep paralysis, which is accompanied by night sweats.

Sleep disorders have been discovered since April 2020, in fact, since the beginning of the health crisis. Omicron, this new highly contagious and atypical variant manifests itself a little differently, most often as a simple cold, with headache, sneezing, cough and sore throat. In the UK, cases of sleep paralysis have been detected, with night sweats. This is very impressive but fortunately benign.

What is sleep paralysis?

The person feels ready for sleep and is conscious, with eyes open, but unable to move, the body is immobile. This phenomenon may last a few minutes, but there is no need to worry as it is simply caused by a night-time fever. However, the event can be frightening and the British media is taking this new symptom very seriously.
 
 
Sleep paralysis is a parasomnia according to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders, which is characterized by the fact that the subject, about to fall asleep (hypnagogic paralysis) or wakes up (hypnopompic paralysis) but fully conscious, is unable to perform any voluntary movement1 or with extreme effort. 
 
Once a movement has been made, the victim regains complete control of himself. This sensation of immobility is commonly associated with auditory, sensory or visual hallucinations as well as impressions of oppression, suffocation, evil presence and imminent death. The subject, unable to articulate sounds and to warn those around him, usually experiences a feeling of anxiety and fear.
