I watch too much grey's anatomy. So I will refrain from giving medical advice because I think EVERYTHING is a brain tumor

but, sleep deprivation does some weird stuff..

You need to be pretty seriously sleep deprived for that to cause hallucinations on it's own, though. Like, awake for days or running on an hour or two of sleep. I don't think just waking up throughout the night would cause that.

Were you drinking more caffeine than usual, by any chance? If you're upping your caffeine to make up for lack of sleep, the combo could do it

Most people that I knew who experienced it were up for 3+ days straight, but then again everybody's body is different. Adding caffeine or even other OTC medications when sleep deprived could definitely affect it though.

I had some caffeine today but not more than usual. I really have no idea. But it was WEIRD.

My friends who are super in to cars have a couple that are candy painted. You can go the cheapo way with two colors but if you go all out there are a TON of colors that can come out.

It really depends on the person. I'm quite tolerant of just a few hours of sleep a night, but there was a time when I was working December for USPS and averaged about 2 hours of sleep per night that I started hallucinating on the drive home one night. The road just...disappeared in front of me. I kept driving because I drove the route hundreds of times before and KNEW the road wasn't really out, but it was very weird.

You can have migraines with no headache. I don't think I've ever heard of them causing such specific hallucinations before, though.

Daydreaming? Or sort of half-sleeping or something? I know when I nap I tend to mix my surroundings in with my dreams, even to the point of dreaming that I'm awake lying in bed in the same room I'm actually sleeping in.

I thought I might be having aural hallucinations the past few days, because I kept hearing things like waves crashing/gushing water or rustling right next to my ear (and I just went off all my medication, and even though I don't really have a history of hallucinations they're not uncommon with my condition) but turns out it's just a sort of tinnitus and it's from a blood pressure issue/heart arrhythmia.

I have something similar at night fairly often, but it's called Exploding Head Syndrome (which is the most awesome name for anything ever lol). It can range from anything from doors closing to pans clattering as I drift off to sleep. Often I hear "fireworks." Come to think of it though, I haven't had it happen in some time now. Once (a couple months ago) I SWEAR I heard the TARDIS
