Exploding head syndrome

Postby guyonthewall » Sat Mar 04, 2017 8:12 pm

Has anyone learned how to beat exploding head syndrome? The only thing I have found that works is taking way to many sleeping medications until I am forced to sleep. I know this is dangerous and not recommended which is why I am asking for what others have come up with.

I dont have this syndrome but i also hear noises when i sleep that people tell me isnt there. It does not bother me, so im sorry i dont have great advice, but what i will do if i cannot sleep or to distract myself is to put on a CD(usually upbeat music) that you can fall asleep to but will turn off automatically. Have you told anyone close to you that you have this syndrome? That can help.

I have tried music and white noise machines but the loud screaming sound I hear (sounds like a man screaming inside my head) easily covers up any outside sound. My GF knows about it but is lost on how to help.

I don't have this kind of head syndrome. You can contact with a doctor for better information.
