I have often heard my name called right prior to falling asleep. It's annoying. Usually, I'll ignore it unless it was very clear. Then I'll scope the house out, just in case.
One of the weird things I have been experiencing lately as I hit the hay though, is I will hear a explosion type sound in my head and it'll actually make my body do a quick spasm/jump. Now that, I find odd.
I just have to say WOW.. I have the exact same experiences.
The name calling, the explosion sound, everything. I am reeling atm. All I can add right now is when I do hear these things and try to 'listen' I feel as if some one is talking through a soundproof door and communication is just beyond my grasp.

1% of the U.S. population has schizophrenia. There are many types and subtypes of schizophrenia. I was diagnosed as paranoid schizoeffective which is schizophrenia and bipolar mixed.
A lot of people have schizophrenia and don't even know it. Some can have it thier whole life and not need medical attention. There are also paranoid peronality types. People that have some digree of paranoia but don't need help.
When it starts to effect your dailly life and you can no longer function it's time to get help. Most schizohprenics don't beilive there is anything wrong with thierselves no matter how sick they are. The lack the mental insight to thier illness. They start to beilive that the voices are aliens or god. Theres no rationality because in thier mind theres nothing wrong with them.
When your own mind turn against you it's one of the worst kinds of torture imaginable. I would rather have my legs amputated then go threw another psychosis.edit on 13-2-2012 by wantsome because: (no reason given)
My brother has schizophrenia (diagnosed 15 yrs ago) but he's never reported voices.
