    This may sound crazy and if you have never been hit on the head really hard you won’t understand what I am trying to explain.

    I just woke up...or more accurately I jumped out of bed after getting hit on the head twice.

    This happens a lot.
    Nobody hit me but I have all of the symptoms except physical marks.
    Confusion, foggy memory, sick stomach, massive heart rate, that white light that happens when you get hit etc etc.

    This started 10 years ago when I jumped out of bed because it felt like someone hit me.
    “Come on mother F’er!”
    I said that to my empty apartment with my hands up ready to fight the intruder.
    5 minutes of searching showed me nobody was there and the fact that my cat was on the bed cleaning herself proved to me nobody was ever there.
    Any time people came over my cat would hide for hours.
    I came to the conclusion my cat jumped on my head.

    Years would go by and it got worse.
    Even accusing my girlfriend of hitting me.

    Sometimes 5 or 6 hits to my head would have me flail out of bed and end up on the floor feeling like I got my ass kicked.
    No physical marks but I would have actual symptoms like I did get beat up.

    Eventually I learned to limit the amount of “hits” to my head by stabilizing myself on the bed and shaking my head hard.
    This method limits the “hits” to less than 3.
    It is still a horrible experience but 3 or less “hits” is better than 5 or 6.

    Only two people have witnessed this and they both said I just jumped up rapidly.
    No actual head movements like being hit.

    Any idea what this might be?

    Only been drinking for the last two years out of the last 10 so it’s not the alcohol.

    And a brain tumor wouldn’t wait for me to be asleep.

    I will.
    But what kind of doctor?
    The only sleep doctors I have seen were in horror movies 🤔

    A neurosurgeon, preferably one who doesn't appear in horror movies.

    This has been “happening a lot” for the last “10 years” and you haven’t been to visit a doctor?

    Yes I have an idea what it might be... bullshilt

    Hypnagogic jerk. (A condition, not an insult).

    If you are being serious, then you may need to see a neurologist, as it could also be some kind of seizure activity, or something similar.

    I just read up on hypnagogic jerk and it focused on the limbs twitching.
    My problem might be miniature siezures if that makes sense.
    But why does it only happen when I am sleeping?
    Maybe it is severe hypnagogic jerks but inside my head?

    Some form of seizure activity is more likely. Like I say, get yourself referred to a neurologist. Probably nothing to worry about but best to get tested.

    When you sleep old chap there is electrical activity in your brain, which for some people can trigger episodes the likes of which you are describing.
