Have you ever been startled awake in the middle of the night from what sounds like someone picking up a stack of dishes and dropping them in your sink?

Or have you awoken because you swear you heard your name being yelled, people shouting, loud bangs, cymbals, every door in your home being slammed at once...

Well I have, and it has followed me around. I would experience this at home - over multiple homes over the years. or at work ( work at a mine. When on shift we stay in bunk houses)

At the time it's pretty intense. Waking up thinking someone is breaking into your home, but when you check it out, nothing is amiss. Even the damn cats still asleep, surely they would have reacted to the sound I just heard.

So I started looking around online for what the heck would be causing this.
Turns out, I may have Exploding Head Syndrome.

Yup Exploding Head Syndrome.

It's when you perceive loud sounds at the moment of the onset of sleep.
This sleep phenomena can most likely explain a lot of the odd sounds people swear they hear at night, thus thinking their home is haunted.

More on EHS

Of course, a lot of people still experience strange occurrences during their waking hours. So this obviously does not write off people's claims of haunted happenings.
But it does help in coming to a conclusion when those strange happenings only take place in the middle of the night.

What do you think ATS?
Does anyone else experience those loud smashing smashing noises at night, only to find there's absolutely nothing amiss when you investigate?

Waking to loud pops, on rare occasions ( I feel them in my head, know its not outside my brain.)

Sometimes it is, loud crashes on the freeway a hundred feet away.

Tire Screeches... (you cringe) Crash, tinkle, tinkle, yelling and sirens follow.

Your's sounds a little different...a little extra umm... activity. If it follows you then its attached to you, not a place.

Ever had a trauma associated with a lot of noise? For instance, (just wondering) are you a combat vet by any chance?

While taking a nap in a lazy boy chair I have had it happen several times. I suspected it was me leaving my body for an instant or me straddling into another dimension

For me its kinda weird. Its sounds almost exactly like my doorbell but louder. The first few times i ran downstairs to get the door. Nobody there. Thought someone was messing with me. So the next few times it happened i bolted to my window to watch my walkway instead. Nobody there. There is no way they could have escaped that fast. When one day my doorbell did go off (at a reasonable hour) is when i noticed a slight difference in the sound and the volume was lower. I told my doctor about this and he offered no explanation. He is useless douche though. This sound happens a couple times a week, jarring me awake and leaving my heart pumping and adrenalin flowing. This has been going on for a year now and i must say, i really hate it. Looks like im not the only one and it sux. But thanks for the explanation. You are smarter than my doctor it would seem. Lol. Dont be too flattered, he is a putz. Lol

I have them all the time, at night, just the other night I jumped in bed and asked my husband that I just head glass bottles been crashed.

He didn't heard anything, I hear the cracks and pops too, very bothersome sometimes because I feel somebody is in the house.

I have that a lot too and mine sounds like a loud snap of electricity and quite honestly, it kind of feels great. I hear it as loud as can be in my head and I kind of feel it too.

I also have sleep paralysis, the kind that happens when falling asleep. That's when I get the loud snapping noise as well but they are separate events. I wonder if one has to do with the other?

Has happened a few times here too, amazingly with a loud doorbell sound, just like Beatnixx1414.

That kind of reminds me of the sounds one hears when leaving the body during astral projection.

I've had a few similar experiences over the years. One of which ended up in an embarrassing yet hilarious situation. Didn't realize there was an actual phenomenon or condition involved.

Not a combat vet, but similar in a way. I have being diagnosed with PTSD.

5 years with the volunteer fire department. being first on the scene for hi-way accidents....mainly body extraction, both alive and deceased.

And I work at a mine site. Where I have been involved with 2 incidents involving a death.
I'm often the nurse on call ( when the real nurse is either off site or already dealing with something)
This is Because every fire fighter is also a trained medic - I am on scene before the ambulance 80% of the time.

My wife finally convinced me to speak to someone. And I was diagnosed after a few sessions.

At first I thought just what you suggested that the loud crashing or noises was due to my PTSD, but upon reading up on EHS, there are just regular everyday people that experience this as well.

I have brain explosion in the moment i fall a sleep, it has sound and a feeling of electricity or a massive blow to your brain, it wakes me up every time and feels very uncomfortable , very annoying.

The other day i woke up in the middle of the night in a shock when a old bearded guy next to my bed screamed "buh" in to my face, i literally thought there was a guy in my room for a minute or so after waking up and was shaking in shock, i can still picture his face.

I have sleep paralysis also. I did a thread on here about a very coincidental SP event that had both myself and my wife at the same time experience something.

This is for you and Beatnix1414

Do you get anxiety when someone rings the bell?

Hey Mac! Very interesting reading!

I can't say that I have had the loud bang, I wake up falling. Often!

My husband says it is crazy to watch me. Usually at least once a week I will wake up and feel like I just got dropped on my bed. He said that if you are watching I'm perfectly still until I "jerk awake". Which is when I feel like I'm falling onto the bed.

I have experienced that as well!
I can remember when I was like 10 or so, that it literally felt like I was dropped from the ceiling in my bed room.

I ran out of my room and slept on my moms bedroom floor lol.

I still get the jerking awake as well. It usually happens after being exhausted from work.
Early 5 am mornings and 12 hour plus work days takes a toll on you after awhile.

My sound is a loud urgent pounding - like someone pounding on the door. Very freaky until you understand what it is... although even then it is still freaky.

They have gave it a name but they don't understand what it is because science doesn't understand the Astral realm.

It's in the same realm as Sleep Paralysis because they both happen at the exact same state known as mind awake/body asleep which when practiced is the gateway to the conscious exploration of the Astral realm.

When you are in this state you have conscious control over your astral body, we've all been in the state, think of when you are about to drop off to sleep and your body jerks and you awake. That is the tether snapping your astral body back into the physical body. That tether is what keeps you connected to your physical body during your astral/dream state.

I'd call that a big yes, inducing its own engram on your psyche. The sound of car crashes is horrendous, I been in one car-tastrophic tumbler.

Maybe those experiences affected you more than you realize. I don't mean you were there and witnessed kind of engram, but the aftermath, the in your face raw images of those events... imo, pretty horrific.

Your mind envisions the accident from the wreckage, the debris, the blood and bodies. You might be carrying some of that with you.
