Hope I am posting this in a right part of the forum. I am a newbie and I suffer from this problem. My head doesn't exactly explode and falls into pieces, but I actually get such sounds in my head.
I am not a regular drinker. I strictly don't do drugs. I smoke cigarettes, that's all. No addiction to caffiene etc. Just before drifting into sleep, I used to hear exploding sounds that would wake me up. I would check everything around me, and realise that the sounds were internal. No pain etc. but just uncomfortable enough to bring me bake to awakened state and keep me awake for a while. Nowadays, I hear less of banging but I get vibration sensations in my head just before drifting into sleep. They are sometimes so strong that it feels that someone is literally passing painless electric waves in my head from one temple to another. Very strage indeed! I have been to the doctor with it. He was to send me for brainscan, but there is no sign of any appointment through the post. I think it's a neurological issue, causing auditory experiences. I have read a lot about Hypnagogia and sleep paralysis etc. but it hasn't helped me enough to understand this problem.
I wonder if anyone can cast any light on a problem of this kind? if not, I will try some health forum.
Thanks in anticipation.

Have you considered the possibility of a form of tinnitus?
I have suffered with a 6.5 k whistle in my left ear for 30 or more years.
About 10 years ago, I started to hear what I call 'thunder'.
This sounds just like rolling thunder, but I can stop it by pressing on my eyeballs (or even on my skull above the eyes) with a finger.
I can sometimes initiate it just by 'squashing' my eyeballs by 'screwing up' the eyes.
It is most annoying when auto-starting just as I am going to sleep or when (I suspect) initiated during dreaming (causing rapid eye movement which causes thunder, which wakes me up).
It has been reported but remains unexplained by medical experts.
I have to conclude that it is a form of tinnitus, possibly caused by an unwanted interconnection between some of the eye muscles and the auditory nerve(s).
The loudness of the 'thunder' is variable with time and varies between fairly quiet and very loud!

I had a bout of this, but my sounds were fast intense zaps! I tried to relax into and try and explore them but this decame too intense and I was scared my head would explode or id have a stroke. I have a lot of ear-nose-throat problems and do experience tinnitus, but this was really something else. Many a similar thing is going on with you. I haven't had any doctors appointments for it.

>>> Since you tried brain scans and nothing was found, this auditory hallucination could be a result of Aura sensation, it is a migrane type, but you don't experience headache, you get aura irritable sensation. you'll most likely experience this same type of sensation. Have you tried over counter Acetaminophen or Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) only if you DO experience pain.
