See if y'all can figure this out..... Cuz I'm stumped.



So it was about 3am (maybe 2:30) and I was awake, but getting sleepy, and then I must have fallen asleep very briefly and then I was jolted awake, and I felt like my eyes were shaking and the rest of my body was twitching (internally, like the muscles, but i wasnt shaking if that makes any sense) and I was blinded by bright bluish white strobe-lights. Then I grabbed DH to kind of ground myself and at that point I was fully awake, but I couldn't see anything at all, except bright yellow lights swirling (think very active aurora borealis) with a bright blue (almost turquoise) burst in the center that would flash bright and then fade, and it kept happening. This all happened for maybe 3 minutes.


Any idea what that could have been? Cuz.... I kinda don't wanna go to sleep tonight lol




**UPDATE**


I was hoping not to have to update, but said I would if it happened again.


It happened again last night!! This time around 4:00 i would say... Less time, and the lights were just white, but same strobe light type thing. And then shortly thereafter, my body went straight and rigid, and I was trying to say "help" to my husband but all I could do was just make unintelligible noise. I felt like I couldn't breathe, it was so weird.

I've looked into it being like a false awakening, nocturnal epilepsy, batshit crazy lol I've tried every explanation.

Anyone exp this before? Or heard of it happening?

Do you suffer from migraines? Any problems with your eyes when you are awake? Look up symptoms of detached retina or retina injuries.

Whoa!  If it happens again, I would definitely see your physician.  Sounds like what happened to John Travolta in "Phenomenon"!!  That would have definitely have freaked me out.  Be well.

Nope, I mean I have occasional headaches but nothing major.

My eyes are ok, I have to wear glasses, but it's not a major correction.

I'll have to look that up, thanks!
