is anyone keeping count of hits and miss?

I just had my right ear go totally deaf for a few seconds and then a HUGE high pitched ring @ around 5:50am CST

This is my first ear ring in well over a month and it was one of the strongest i've ever experienced. It's very worrisome based on past ear rings

There was a 6.2 off the coast of Russia in the Bering Sea like 18 hours after my ear rang. I'm in Central Texas so i'm not sure what to make of it, it's pretty far away but it was a pretty big EQ. Also, it was the first time my ear rang in a month +.

I'm not sure and I usually don't speculate - but - I have a very bad headache, a migraine, It started last night. I use to think that these special headaches were predecessors to sever weather coming my way. Now - I am not so sure that is all that is going on. While I do get these horrible things a few days out of a noreaster, I have been noticing of late that they come also prior to very large quakes - or so it appears. I think it is high time I start making a note of it and this thread appears to be the place for that.

If you are in Texas, the closest seismic event to you would have been the 3.0 in Louisiana late Sunday night.

However, the reason I wanted to respond to you was that this is the first time I have ever been to this thread (or knew about it), but even though it sounds so weird to me as I prefer to study the science of EQ's, I have been noticing my ears ringing in relationship to several seismic events since about May of this year.

The ringing is a very unusal sound to me, very low hum, followed by a higher pitch sound in one ear, and than it does the same thing in the other ear a few seconds later. I have always had this as long as I can remember, and I am in my late 30's, but never in relationship to anything going on in the environment.

It was in May at the time of the 5.8 in Puerto Rico that I first noticed it happening, and than thought to myself, I wonder if that has any signifigance. I spent the next day watching USGS more closely than normal, as well as Space Weather and the BP cams. It just felt like I knew something was going to happen after my ears stopped ringing, but I did not know from what source. Even though EQ activity in Puerto Rico is very normal, a 5.8 is still an EQ of moderate size, so I made a note of what happened in my journal when it did happen.

The next time it happened was June 22nd, the day before the 5.0 in Ontario which I actually did feel here where I live in the Midwest. This time the ringing was much stronger, and also lasted much longer in each ear. The next day I was sitting here in my basement working on some e-mails after lunch, and I felt a tremble that made me look up USGS right away. A big red EQ was looking at me from not that far away across the border in Onatario.

This past Saturday, July 31, my ears rang again, but this time it was much shorter than anytime before. When I saw the 3.0 from Sunday, I thought that I might be on to something.

HOWEVER, I am a huge skeptic of anything that can not be proven to me 100%. My personal argument against this notion of my ears ringing in accordance with EQ activity is the fact that I missed the 5.4 in California on July 7, and the Alaskan 6.6 on July 18.

I say partially debunked, because maybe it is affected by distance and plate. Puerto Rico is very far from me, as is Louisiana, but maybe it has to do with geographical barriers like the Mississippi river, or the Rocky Mountains.

Or maybe, those are just bad ear wax days!

I have no idea LOL. But for now, I am going to keep tracking this and see what happens.

Thank you for posting on this when you did. It popped up on the Recent Posts, and definitely caught my eye.

It is a seriously interesting topic to me. My Grandmother used to tell me that a really bad headache meant that either something bad just happened, or that something bad was about to happen, and to pay attention whenever I got one.

I never thought much about her beliefs in that regard until I saw your post. Maybe you are on to something.

Why is it that only animals can 'supposedly' sense when an EQ is about to happen? Why can't we humans do the same?

Yeah man, I have no idea. I noticed the ringing in late 2008 when the yellowstone stuff was kicking off. My ears never rang before that i noticed, but at that point it was becoming an almost daily occurrence.

With that being said, I have no idea what actually causes it. Maybe the stress of plates before a quake sometimes produces a tone that some people can hear? Who knows. There's no real science to it, because I don't get a ring for every quake. I do notice that it takes at least a 4.9 for me to get a tone close to where I am and then progressively higher the further away it is. If the Bering Sea quake a few days ago was what caused my ear to ring, then it was the furthest i've ever heard one. I never get a ring for any of the big ones in asia/indonesia.

By the way, if you google around it's not an uncommon occurrence. I read a blurb from someone before saying that he was involved in a study in the 70s. Whenever his ear rang he was supposed to call a phone number and leave a message. He said that a number of times the number would be busy directly after his ears rang. He never was provided any further info but I thought it was interesting

and fwiw i don't get headaches, but i do notice that around the time when i get these rings, my sleep suffers. I toss/turn all night long and wake up 2-3am WIDE awake for no reason. Something strange is afoot at the circle k, that's for sure

I could not sleep much at all last night, and my ears did the ringing thing early this morning.

My ear hasn't rang since last week but I had yet another bad sleep last night. That makes 3 in a row
I usually sleep ok on average. And nothing on my end has changed to warrant these horrendous sleeping cycles

Because of this cool thread, I am really going to start tracking the ear ringy thing. If animals can sense them, why not humans?

The ones that I have notcied so far have never been out of the US. LOL, I still think it is probably ear wax, as I believe firmly in scientific data, does make you wonder sometimes why humans are not more enivronmentally aware like our animal friends around us.

I've been tracking it basically since late 2007 and it's around 95%+ accurate for me. If my right ear rings, there will be a sizeable earthquake (> 5.0) on this side of the planet and usually this hemisphere within 12-24 hours.

Now i know people say "earthquakes happen all of the time". They do. But 5.0 or > don't happen that often in/around the US. And like I said before, i don't get a ring for every single one, but when my ear does ring, it's almost a lock that there will be an EQ within a day

The weird thing is that I now can hear a difference in tones. Normally when my ear rings, it goes deaf for a second or two and then a low to high to low tone happens. This is what happens most of the time. But when that chile eq happened a few months ago, my ear went deaf for a few seconds and then the ring was really low the whole time.

Oh, and also my ear kind of hurts when this happens. Not severe or anything but almost like when you're having an allergy attack or something and you can feel the Eustachian tube between your ear and throat kind of itch/twinge of pain. That's what it feels like to me

Its been a while, but the ear ringing thing is happening again. Kinda making me nervous. Its stronger than I have ever heard. Both ears.

posted on Sep, 20 2010 @ 10:39 AM
I haven't had an ear ring is almost two months. Weird how it comes and goes

posted on Sep, 26 2010 @ 04:40 PM
mild ring today....hearing in my right ear went out and then a barely audible ping that lasted for a very long time. Maybe 30+ seconds. It was barely perceptible, like when you take a hearing test and you get that one tone that you can barely hear. Stay tuned

I was coming on here to post about my ears ringing when I saw your post. Hmm.

That 'expecting' feeling is starting to creep into my bones too.

Got a new dog since last posting on here, and he's been barking the last hour or so for no reason. But I think he is barking at whatever my three year old son keeps pointing at...he keeps saying, "the big guy" and pointing in the corner where my dog is barking at.

I think I am going to break out some medicinal, liquid courage here in a minute. Ear ringing was about two hours ago (around 7 EST), and lasted a long time also. My son talking about the 'big guy' was about an hour ago and still ongoing.

posted on Sep, 27 2010 @ 06:09 AM
Offtopic and I don't like bringing this up too often, but our last house was "haunted". Our two dogs would occasionally sit and stare and bark at something that we couldn't see. They would follow something across the room while growling. Since we've moved 4 years ago, none of that behavior has happened again. I really do believe that they can see things that we can not.

Anyway, i'm getting that feeling too of a new cycle starting up. I usually get really bad insomnia too along with the ear ringing, but i slept fine last night. Looking at the USGA website, i don't see anything yet

really big ring a few minutes ago. this one was way more typical....hearing in my right ear went out and i got that itchy sensation and then the high pitched ring
