A weird symptom I wonder if anyone else can relate to. (I’ve tried searching for it on here, but I don’t really know what to type in.)
When I’m lying in bed at night, maybe before I’ve gone to sleep, or if I’ve woken up in the early hours… I sometimes get a strange feeling of liquid rushing through my head… or, more specifically, liquid thundering violently through my head. It’s located around the temples, in the general ear area, usually on both sides.
I’m assuming it’s blood rushing through (contracted?) vessels, and the sensation is magnified.
On nights when this happens, if I also dream… the dream tends to be of some sort of movement or something that challenges balance. So I’ll dream that I’m in a car chase, or driving up a vertical road, or standing on top of a skyscraper and looking down etc… and I assume this is an unconscious elaboration on the “rushing” movement I notice when I’m awake. Though, when I’m awake, I don’t notice any dizziness alongside the feeling.
