Wetting during Sleep Paralysis

This may come strange to most, i got chronically ill 18 years ago and had a lot of different sleep disorders in this time.

Last week i described to someone what a "MEcfs" crash feels like to me, a part of it is lying in my bed without to be able to move, i can open my eyes though.

I said it feels like a sedation, when you are almost awake, with open eyes, but still not able to move. I told my urologist before, because this happens really often and i can't hold it in this moment, but i am fully aware of it, mostly this is during daytime, very rare during the night.

The person i talked to said this sounds like "Sleep Paralysis", a term i never heard before. I looked it up and i thought: "Damn".

Does this happen to others here as well?

Against usual assumptions this situation does not freaks me out at all, it is just a part of my illness i accepted a long time ago, much longer than i am incontinent.
Usually i will wake up with a strong urge and be unable to move, it does not take long and i will wet the bed / diaper, some time (minutes) later i can just get up. I am not sure i shall call this an "accident" because i am aware i need to go but i simply can't.

I think I might have had an episode as a kid of maybe 9 yrs of age. I was dreaming a nightmare one Saturday morning where this giant house fly was buzzing loudly and banging on my bedroom door to get me. A bright light was shining underneath the door except for the shadow of where the fly was standing. I was terrified that the house fly was going come into the room to do me in. Eventually, after more banging on the door, my eyes slowly began to open as I tried to scream (I might have managed a slight croak).

As my eyes began to open, the morning sunlight from the bedroom window was beaming into my eyes. While I laid there, I slowly became aware of the fact that there was a house fly buzzing in the window, trapped as they usually are. It took a few moments before I could negotiate the change in reality and get out of bed, very relieved. It didn't last long, but perhaps 30 seconds.

This sounds like a "typical" case of sleep paralysis most people experience at some point in their life, these situation are often combined with some kind of hallucination. I don't have those by the way.

I got some good information with private message to this problem, this forum is gold as so often.
