Sleep Vibrations: Here's an interesting article===>http://www.Lucidology.Com/blog/101/obe-vibrations/. When one falls asleep, the body actually becomes paralyzed and there is a general neural release which can be perceived as rushing water, vibrations, and other "strange" phenomena. Many people experience this, and there ar no known adverse health effects if you are otherwise alert and don't have sleep apnea.
