Feel pinging from inside mattress

So last Wednesday I woke up around 1am and laid in my bed with my eyes opened for minute when all of a sudden it felt and sounded like someone was pinging from inside my mattress. It freaked me out pretty bad where I couldn't move for a good few mins. But since that night it's happened 2 or 3 more times. It seems to only happen right when I wake up in the middle of the night and is kinda freaking me out. I don't think it's bed springs because It only happens right after I wake up.

The "couldn't move" description sounds like sleep paralysis, which is fairly common. It's sort of a half-awake, half-asleep state. It is considered harmless.

The "freaking out" part suggests you may be under excessive stress and/or anxiety right now. You might do well to employ some anxiety and stress management methods. Exercise, daily sweaty exercise, is typically one of the best.

If this continues to bother you, discuss with your doctor.
