This is my first story. There will be more to come.
I have rented as well as owned several homes in the historic district of the town I live in, over the past twenty years since I finished college and got out on my own. I initially never used to believe in ghosts or hauntings, as my back ground is in science; I still am convinced that more things than not have a solid basis in physical origins, rather than super natural. But every place I've lived in as an adult has been haunted, nonetheless. Ghosts apparently don't care what you believe in---they believe in YOU! Lol... Any way:
In the mid-nineties I owned a historic house that was quite haunted. Most of the activity was benign, but it was all scary. Among the many strange incidents was this one:
My girlfriend and I were asleep in bed one morning when we both thrashed awake at the same time. We had each experienced what is called 'exploding head syndrome', i.e., wherein it sounds as if a bomb has gone off between your ears. I'd had this happen before in my life... But never experienced it simultaneously with someone else. I've researched this phenomenon on line; there exist articles on various neurology sites that describe it, but none of them offer any answers or explanations---just conjecture and theories. Also, the research only describes individuals affected by it, not two or more persons sharing the experience.
So, I'm curious: anyone else ever have this happen?
