I know Im not the only one, all my mates get the same thing

Ya know where your half asleep (still awake) and all of a sudden you feel like your falling, or a ball is about to hit your face etc. and you jump and get a freak shock while lying in bed

Whats the deal with those things? Anyone know why they happen, or how to stop em?
I don't know what the hell you're talking about.

EDIT: Yes, I do. I get those sometimes when I'm half-dreaming about something or other.

you know what sucks, is when your bed is next to a wall and your leg jerks and you slam your knee into the wall, that sucks. i get them when im awake.
Yeah that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was skateboarding (In a dream) and suddenly the board slipped out from underneath me, when I would've hit the ground I woke up and my body contorted in the way it would have had I actually fallen. Weird.

i heard somewhere its because your body feels like its falling

but then again i also heard something like your muscles get really really relaxed and for some reason your body just jerks

One time I was sleeping in a car (long car rides FTL), and I had a dream where I was looking down from the top of the stairwell of my old Elementary school. Then, I fell over the edge and awoke instantly.

That happened to me when I was falling asleep in class one time. One arm slammed into the desk really hard and the other arm flung my pencil halfway across the room. The girl in front of me gave me a weird look...

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

There was a thread on this a while ago, and someone found out what it was actually called. Unfortunately, I can't remember what it is, but I get it as well.

Dude, you just made the most intelligent post in this entire thread. Congrats.
Ugh I hate when that happens.
Just about to fall asleep properly and then BAM 'wtf just happe- oh ****'

Kind of on topic.... Had a weird odd awakening from my dream last night... I was getting lots of piercings in my face at the same time and I woke up and I swear I felt the pain.

Just about everytime I'm falling asleep, I dream Im trip over, and I jump out of my skin, and follow this by falling asleep!

idk how to stop them but I know an explanation to why it happens. When you're sleeping your foot is usually perpendicular to the bed. As you relax, sometimes your foot relaxes suddenly and "falls" parallel to the bed.

Now, for some crazy reason, this messes with your semicircular canals(what your body uses to balance) and your brain is tricked into that "falling" sensation. It's gets less common as you grow older.

EDIT: so technically you can put your feet in a cast or something and it should help

Yeah I get those sometimes.

I think its actually when your body starts to "fall" into sleep/dream but you're still half-awake? Then you bounce.

But it happens to me plenty, and it freaks me out every time.
lol I've had them too, like when I'm having an odd dream of falling down the stairs, then I wake as I hit the ground. It's kinda amusing
