Ok so I have no idea what is happening to me and I am scared silly about it!! There is so much going on with me that I really do think it is something serious this time. I am 36 , female, have suffered with anxiety and severe panic for years, along with o.c.d. and sleep apnea. I have had loads of "funny feelings" over the years, mostly all have been down to panic.

I take the weirdest feelings in my sleep or just as I go into or out of sleep. For almost a year now though, this has got extremely worse. I will try my best to describe it. It is always as I am waking up, my head fills with pressure, like a pulsating feeling all over my head and face, then as that passes, I get a hissing, like air coming out a balloon, in one or both ears, sometimes with a ringing sound along with the hissing. Each time is slightly different in the intensity of the pulsing in head, and twice I have actually felt like I am pulsing all over, almost like a fit.

I have searched all over and cannot find anything that links both the hissing in ears and pulsing heated feeling i head and face.

I was just at the hospital two weeks ago and had an ecg, full blood works, chest x-ray and the one were they put the dye through your arteries, and all was clear. Obviously this is not testing my head though. Anybody think this sounds like anything? Or had the same symptoms? Any help would be great, thanks!!

Hi Ronigav, Welcome to HealingWell.

Due to the going to sleep and waking aspects of the symptoms you describe, check out this phenomena.



Hypnogogic are events perceived while falling asleep, Hypnopompic are events that occur while waking.

For a bizarre phenomenon that's benign, but inexplicable, look up "Exploding Head Syndrome".


Hope this helps in your research.
