Hello, need help, have advanced degenerative disc disease in spine and very bad in neck. a few days ago while sleeping I turned over to my right side. seconds later I heard this Extremely Loud hammering noise. didn't realize it was coming from my head untill I turned over and lifted up onto my left elbow. hammering not so loud then stopped, opened eyes to light show of flashing and swirling patterns. stopped in about 10 seconds. afraid to go asleep now. My hands, arms, legs feel heavy and crazy sensations were very bad the next two nights.. only little better now. had been thinking my neck was messing with my BP. so took BP when relaxed.. Normal, then seconds later after turning my head to the right and slightly back. and gently pushing ( like when trying to hold back a cough ) BP jumped to 161 / 115. anybody out there experiencing anything like this.. would sure like to read your story. thanks..
