I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing something similar, but I'm also glad to know that I'm not alone! Yes, the metal blind analogy could also describe it. There's no pain with you, either, right? Just a sensation-type thing. I haven't even bothered to try to describe it to my doctor because I didn't know how.

The only thing different that I've noticed within the last year, which is about as long as this going-to-sleep thing has been happening, is that I occasionally get dizzy for no apparent reason. My first (scary) thought was Parkinson's, although I have none of the symptoms, because my mother and many of her aunts and uncles had it.

Please let me know if they determine anything from your EEG. I'll keep you in my thoughts.
I don't have any pain with them. The ones I have when awake will sometimes make me lose my balance, slur my speech and have a hard time thinking of words when they are going on. Do yours vary in degree? I mean sometimes they hit hard and other times softer and not as noticable. The hard ones will make me flinch or if sleeping me will wake me up. I have been to several neuros trying to find out what is ging on. MRI of brain was okay and the one of my neck showed my spinal canal is narrowed from arthritis and a protruding disc, but doctors say that this is not a factor in the odd sensation I feel. I had cervical fusion of C5-6 in 1994 but they don't think that has anything to do with it. I have read a lot on complex partial seizures and some of it seems like what I have but not the odd sensations in my head. I will let you know what the Video EEG shows.
