I think you are having night terrors, which are bdifferent from nightmares, in that they involve some degree of amnesia and bizarre activity that the person is either unaware of or doesn't remember. The night terrors are like hallucinations. The sleep paralysis can go with these and could be a part of narcolepsy, especially if you have excessive daytime sleepiness. I agree that seizure activity should be ruled out. You could accomplish a lot with a formal sleep study which includes an EEG and observation of these episodes with cardiac and apnea monitoring. How often do they occur? I have had night terrors associated with lupus. A sleep specialist should be able to help determine what might be causing them and treat you to get rid of them. They sound severe and are causing injuries to yourself and probably really disturbing others in your bed/household.
