Sorry to resurrect a thread, but the discussion here seemed closer to what I've experienced. Due to my occupation, I also get a complete physical to
include a hearing test each year, and pass with flying colors. Although I'm a bit older and heavier now, I've had this ever since I can remember.
I've mentioned it to docs through the years, and to the person they're calling it "tinnitus" as it can't be measured or diagnosed properly. I leave
it at that since I don't want to wind up in the loony bin by trying to describe things further.
I've had a constant, high-pitched whine "in my head" since I could form memories. I'm only aware of it in total or near silence--oddly enough such as
the sound-proof booth for hearing tests--but can make myself more aware of it pretty much at the thought. It comes and goes in volume and direction,
and on rare occasions something "pops" to the point it's the only thing I can hear momentarily, sort of like watching a quiet movie and a god-forsaken
LOUD commercial comes on. The sound reminds me of the ultrasonic frequency when a CRT TV is on but muted. I can't seem to make a correlation between
this "noise" and any particular event, emotion or state of mind, as it's always just kinda there. Anyone else?
Which reminds me...has anyone else just assumed a TV was on in another room and actually heard the muffled dialogue and music, only to enter the room
and find everything was off? This happens to me frequently too.
