    When i shake my head or hit my had in a special way i sometimes (Rare but weird) see star looking fragments(they are lighting up infront of me and i can even see them in the dark).
    Does anybody know what this comes from? please tell me.

    I do not know if this thread is in the right forum folder since i have no idea what this comes from.

    Sincerely Rippyguy

    You really should't hit your head just to induce this- you could injure yourself. What you're describing is probably just phosphenes. The phrase "seeing stars"- which often occurs after head trauma- refers to this phenomenon. I hope this satisfies you. Again, stop hit yourself in the head.

    i don't do it on purpose it just happens from time to time. Sometimes a friend hits me with a book in the head and it appears, or if i stand up quickly.

    Yes, sounds like phosphenes. Your friend is a jerk.
