Default water starts great then stops - noise in wall

we do not have a well just regular city water here in houston.
but one of my bathrooms - i turn on the faucet (single) on the cold water side and the cold water comes out great for about 5 seconds - and then just stops short.
i hear a moaning noise in one of the walls.
it doesn't happen when the faucet is turned to hot water.
and when u turn the faucet to cold water - BUT ONLY OPEN IT UP 1/2 WAY - no issues -
it only chokes when you open it up all the way.
as soon as you do that then, it stops to a dribble and the pipes behind the wall vibrate and hum.
it's like 'full throttle' is the issue.
you can leave it on all day only if it's half way. has anyone ever heard of this?
thanks again for any suggestions.
rik

It sounds as though a washer is loose. I would start by looking at the supply stop valve under the sink.
