I know this topic has been covered before but ill tell my story and see if anyone has anything to add.

about 7 years ago, i lived with my ex and would frequently hear a buzzing noise, somewhat akin to an eletcrical transformer.

I would mostly hear it at night when all was quiet and when going to bed, though not during sleep or when awakening.

The strange thing was if i raised my head above a certain level it would go away, lower my headit would return, even stranger is my ex heard it as well and found the same results.

I would hunt about the house trying to find the source, yet could only find it when i lay in bed.

We moved to another house, I still kept ownerships of the first house, we split not long after moving, but one night in the new house, i had to get out of the house, i could hear a very strong buzzing in the new house, so strong to the detrement that i could not sleep or be relaxed in the house (this was occasionaly) but in the new house my ex could not hear it, it drove me nuts.

after we split i returned to the original house and used the other bedroom and on many times the same thing, s strange buzzing which would go away if i moved from the layn down position in my bed only in one position did it occur , it did not mater where in bed i lay i could hear it but as soon as i lay up it was gone. Now i woul dhave thought it was me , internally but my ex heard it as well?

Any ideas anyone?

sounds to me like some kinda medical problem.

i have fired too many weapons without hearing protection and i almost always have a buzzing or a ringing in my ears. often the buzz or ring will depend on what position my body is in.

IDK. just a thought...

First off let me welcome you to the ATS community!

Secondly, that is quite the story, and leaves me scratching my head for answers.

The only thing I can come up with is what I saw on an episode of ghost hunters....

They found that a ceiling fan had blown a motor and was making a buzzing sound, also emitting large amounts of EMF's into the surroundings.

The only question I have for you is, do both these houses have a ceiling fan in the room where you sleep?

He did say that his ex heard it too.

That rules your theory out.......

Like Dave, I've fired a myriad of weapons for extented periods. My hearing has been semi-toast since I was 8 years old. Now. Does this buzzing seem to come in waves, like it's a constant but with waves of heightened intensity overlaid over it? Is it primarily occurring prior to sleep, or all the time?

I don't have any deep insights; I don't want to get your hopes up, but I might have a few clues into the process.

i have had the same experience before. i usually get the buzzing here and there but it can be intense. i have talked a friend that has some good insight on the paranormal and he said he has never come across it in any of reading.

Nice story. This is rly strange.

You ever thought about the possibility that maybe your ex lied to you the first time just to be nice?(:

Can't rly think of a better explanation:S

(Anonymous post. I am not registered. Sorry.)

This might be cause, but I am not sure because I am not doctor.

You might have a medical condition called "Tinnitus", my Mother has this condition.
It is like what you typed but only my Mother hears a whistling sound, and it is hard for her to sleep too because of condition.
I will try and find more information on Tinnitus in meantime, I will ask my Mother about it when she gets back from work in couple of days too! ^_^

Please sorry for my English, not my first language.

I get buzzing sounds in my head if I eat anything with MSG in it. One time it was particularily loud just as I passed the TV. It thought it had just burned out with that loud zapping sound. Other food items cause humming, roaring and ringing. Sometimes I hear them all at once.

I doubt my ex lied first time round as she was quite annoyed with it as well, second major time was in another house and when i went outside it went away but in the house i coul dhear it, though that time she couldnt.

Ie it must have been external, for both to hear and most likely directional. im familiar with the sleep paralysis, had that before, and tinitus had ringing in the ears many times, though not a sufferer, but this was definitely external and directional.

Another freaky thing that happened was in a house before this time, had been hitting mushrooms a bit ,after one trip, the next day, all the clocks in the house would not move forward ie clicking on the hand but not moving(this was during sober time ie not tripping) none of the remotes would work tv, video, etc (no dvds back then) replaced batteries tried all sorts then 3 days later all of them started working again.

i looked into the buzzing noise as it was very strange and i had heard it many times on/off in the first house while wide awake during day etc, defintiely external and not sleep related i swicthed the mains electricity power off a few times hoping that would end it, but it didnt stop it .

( I'm not registered just wanted to put my two cents in)

What you described happens to me when i am in a dark room usually at night with the TV turned on. I hear a buzzing sound it always seems to go away when i turn the TV off tho, that might be it although it could possibly be something else

Some people can hear higher frequency than others. I am one. I went to my dentist a couple months ago, and the high pitch in the room had me ready to
loose my mind. The dentist said I was one of the few that noticed that in the room, and he had me try to find the source for him. I could locate it to a certain area, but all the wires , I could not tell him witch one.

The worst are those mosquito keep away key chains. I went nuts and tore my house apart one night when I could hear this high pitch noise. It was so bad I was throwing up. Finally found the keychain was turned on inside a drawer.

Out to the trash they went.

Did you check the fridge? I found lying in bed I could hear buzzing if my head was turned a certain way. But I think it was our old fridge and we also sleep with fan running.
