electrocuting brain?

I have had migraines for as long as I can remember. My mom would take me out of school to take me to the doctor for MRIs and Catscans as a child. I never got any real treatment that I know of. I also had issues with "growing pains" in my legs that has never gone away.
I am now 27 and for the past couple of years I have been having what feels like electrical zaps in my brain as I am falling asleep. They are very real, but not real. They are usually loud electrical noises as if a giant bug landed on a bug zapper and just sat there frying for a minute. Sometimes it's extremely loud thunder that I swear I can feel rumbling. Sometimes I wake up thinking someone is banging on the door. I see a bright flash of light that hurts my eyes(keep in mind, it's quiet and dark...) My heart races, my breathing speeds up, and I am terrified I'm going into some kind of seizure or something.
My oldest son has epilepsy, but he's the only person I know with it, so it's not like it runs in the family or anything.

What is going on, am I crazy????

Hi!
Since you awaken from sleep possibility of low blood sugar, low blood pressure and alcohol withdrawal (if you drink) should be looked into. Otherwise it could be sleep seizures usually due to focal epilepsy. Sleep apnea and benign intracranial hypertension are the other possibilities. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
