In brief: ? sleep paralysis
You may have actually been asleep and in the rem stage.
That is about 10 minutes in each 90 minute sleep cycle. This is when we dream and it is in this stage that sleep paralysis occurs. We can easily be deceived by believing that you were "trying to sleep". You may need a sleep lab test.
