Well, I have to tell you....a few years ago, I developed ringing/humming in my ears and it drove me absolutely bonkers! It still does, although I'm
getting used to it....if you can ever get used to noises in your ears. Like you, sometimes it prevents me from sleeping.
I tried everything to get rid of it (and I mean everything.....accupuncture, homeopathy, etc...) and homeopathy got rid of it more or less, but still
every once in a while, the buzzing/ringing/humming comes back. And tonight, it came back.
The noise in my ears is not like the noises you describe...however, the fact that the noise came back today loudly, when I haven't heard it in a
while, PLUS the fact that you are saying that your noises are really loud, leads me to ask myself a few questions.
1. Could tinnitis (noises in the ears) be more than what the medical community says it is? Could we be hearing something that really is out there,
and not just nerve damage?
2. Are the variations in loudness and softness the same in everyone, on the same days?
4. Could tinnitis be a form of extra-sensory perception, except it is extra-auditory perception?
So, if you're up to it, maybe it would be interesting for us (those of us who hear noises) to keep our own separate journals.....for, oh, a
month...documenting the loudness, on a scale of 1-10. And then, at the end of the month, we could post our results, and see if we noticed the volume
was louder on certain days than others.
If the volume of our noises were louder for both of us on certain days, maybe it would suggest that we can hear things that others can't.
I would be up for doing an experiment if you would like to do it with me.
