I have wild experiences sleeping every night but have never experienced that. My dreams are so realistic when I wake up I'm seriously surprised often. I can do this weird thing when I'm dreaming and I think it's a bad dream I shake like cray and wake up

I think its a normal part of falling asleep. Im sure it serves some sort of function
Tell you whats weird; hypnogogic jerks, when you're falling asleep, bodys really relaxed and BAM! You violently jerk

This may sound macabre but your hearing being first to go on the way to sleep is juxtaposed with death where hearing is the last sense to go. Sleep is sometimes compared to semi death but you are not behaving the way science says. Anyway found your phenomena interesting. Even tried a search with no results.
Like other's I hear audible voices outside my head on falling asleep or waking. Since childhood I have heard my name called when wide awake and everyone would say they didn't call me.

Another one that I became acutely aware of is sudden deafness as im falling asleep.
It is very bizarre, like the temporal lobes of one's cerebrum just...shut off.
