In brief: After a nightmare

When you wake up from a nightmare you may have an experience that may be a difference in how the brain and body shift out of sleep.
Sleep paralysis, hallucinations, confusional arousals, and other terms can describe some piece of physical or emotional carryover from dreams. If you can send more info we could clarify the answer better.
