Slamming pain during sleep

There have been about three times in the last 4 to 6 months that I have been woken by a pain in my head that feels like someone slammed something like a hardcover textbook over my head. It's on the top slightly to the back and the pain turns to an ache afterward just like I had been hit with something.

I do suffer from insomnia, and I think I may have been finally sleeping after a few days of little sleep, but I can't be sure. The only other problem that has woken me from a deep sleep is a sudden feeling that something is wrong, then everything goes black, I quit feeling pain (I have Fibromyalgia) and feel like I'm floating. It's a wonderful feeling while it lasts, and doesn't seem related to the horrible pain. I think it may be sleep apnea, but I've recently been tested and don't seem to have it.

Thanks for any help that anyone may have.
