I Dont Really Know What Is Going On And I Need Opinions

Last night I was having trouble falling asleep but I was so tired. I tried closing my eyes over and over again but every time I kept hearing this unbearable ringing in my ears. When I opened my eyes it would stop. In my head, it was like I was having a conversation with myself and I had said to my self "I just want to go to sleep" and clear as day and extremely loud in my ear, an angry sounding man started yelling at me. I was absolutely terrified. The ringing never subsided and kept me up for at least 3 hours. During this time I felt such an extreme pressure on my chest and was having trouble breathing. Over the past couple of months, I keep waking up at 3:15 and 3:27 a.m. Without fail. Not only that, my son who is usually a heavy sleeper, wakes up screaming like something has scared him half to death. He also often looks at nothing and smiles and laughs. He also says babbles at whatever he is seeing. I figured he was just being silly but he does it so often now that it leaves me wondering. We moved into this house in September and this didn't start happening until December. I always know when something is wrong with someone in my family, I get feelings and I am always right (this recently happened twice within the last month). I have seen a bright figure in front of me when I was about 12 years at my parent's home but other than what I have mentioned, nothing else has really happened to me. I don't know if I have some sort of ability that is just surfacing now, or if I am crazy. Should I be worried? Do I need to talk to someone? Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know what is going on? Please help!

If you want a normal explanation, you could be suffering from sleep paralysis. A heavy feeling in the chest, difficulty breathing, and what are common symptoms. Waking up at the same time every night isn't that uncommon either, it's usually due to stress. It's just like how many people that are able to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day naturally, but an interruption in that pattern.
