Exploding Head Syndrome
A few times when I wake up like last week it happened 2 times I would hear a gunshot. It sounded like it was coming from my mind since it was too close to me and not loud enough if it was too close to me. Exploding Head Syndrome it's called, benign condition in which a person hears loud imagined noises (such as a bomb exploding, a gunshot, or a cymbal crash) or experiences an explosive feeling when falling asleep or waking up. I never heard of anything like bomb but I did hear in the past what sounded like thunder right next to my ear, that's how I know it's not coming from outside. I think I read it might be related to a dissociative disorder. I have depersonalization and derealization but none of these are symptoms of exploding head syndrome.
