I don't know if you intended to scare me, but you did...I had been thinking lately, that I should stop blogging about this stupid hum and just find a way to deal with it and to accept the fact that I'll probably never know what is causing or why I hear it. I think you have helped me make that decision. Thank you.

I have not been in a basement (we don't have those in South Florida as the water table is pretty high) nor a cave (we don't have those either down here). And I don't travel much... But, it would be interesting to find out. I wish I had the knowledge and the equipment to investigate the matter myself, but I don't and can't afford to hire someone. I have contacted universities and so far, nothing.

No one cares, I guess.

OK... Sorry. Actually, I went to 2 doctors on separate occasions. One was a gynecologist and the other a general practitioner. To both I mentioned I was hearing this low frequency sound known worldwide as the hum. They both looked at me in disbelief and didn't really seem to want to find out more. It seemed strange to me, that the only thing one of them asked is "HOW DO I TREAT THIS MEDICALLY?" She didn't even suggest I go see a specialist to rule out possibilities. I had the impression she thought it was ALL IN MY HEAD.
I asked them both , that if they ever get another patient who also hears the hum, to please put them in contact with me. I have yet to meet someone in person who also hears the hum. Is that sad or what?

As entertaining as this can be sometimes, it can also be a waste of time. Time I should be spending with my family or doing something productive.

I have decided to stop posting. So sorry, HUM MAKERS, who I have probably been helping by posting my experiences here to perfect your weapon or whatever it is that causes the hum.

I want to tell everyone, please read MATTHEW CHAPTER 24 in the Bible. The Bible is full of warnings about what will be happening to us.

Palm Beach huh? I am quite sure you have heard of DUMBs. (Deep Underground Military Bases) they are under all 50 States, I am told. Personally I think someone, or something is building some kind of machinery deep down underground for some unknown reason. I have heard it out West, in Nevada in 1985 or so. A hum that seemed to come from nowhere. Sounded like a lot of machinery running at a very high speed.

This may sound trite but I lived near peanut dyers. They would hum loudly all day the entire fall season drove me crazy to the point that it would depress me. I think that some sounds can effect the brain somehow. Maybe someone that sees this thread can explain it better. So I can understand how she must feel. To the OP please let us now what you find out. Good luck and hope things get better for you soon.

I actually looked this up because I have been experiencing a weird humming like a lawn mower or a car engine running. Sometimes it makes me feel dizzy or disorientated. When I heard today for 2 hours straight I went out to see if the maintence/lawn mowers were still working yet they were gone.
Funny because it sounds more like a stalled out lawn mower or car as opposed to something that is moving.
In winter I just assumed someone was warming up their car. When it went on for 3-5 hours I began to wonder if it was something different. When I go outside the noise is much louder so it is not inside my apartment or ears.

Why is the hum getting louder/ stronger?

Probably because the government is building wind farms all over the place with the aim of driving us all bonkers.

Officials cover up wind farm noise report
Civil servants have suppressed warnings that wind turbines can generate noise damaging people’s health for several square miles around.;news;item/1/34/

It's just as well I don't have easy access to some semtex, because if I did these '#@#'@'## noisy wind farms would be no more.

There's nothing worse than not getting a goodnight's sleep, but the best I get these days is 2 hours if I'm lucky. Whatever is causing this noise needs to be nipped in the bud pronto, before it drives myself & everyone else mad.

I think wind farms is probably the most likely cause of this annoying hum.

The Hum is often known by a local name, such as the Bristol Hum, the Taos Hum, the Larges Hum, the Kokomo Hum and many others but in fact there is no local Hum, it is heard across Northern Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, it is a global phenomena.
The purpose of this web site is first to let sufferers know that they are not alone and to show that there is a logical explanation to the so called mystery Hum.
I found the information on the above website interesting and intriguing.

A German Hum researcher was recently given access to two insulated chambers, the first shields acoustic, electrical and magnetic signals.
The EM shielding works excellently for frequencies above 1kHz and the acoustic shielding is very good at all frequencies.

The second chamber was not built with acoustic shielding but does block most ambient noise and it shields all magnetic and electrical fields.
It has the best shielding standards in the world, no chamber has better data, neither the Earth's magnetic field or any EM is detectable within this chamber.

These chambers are most probably the quietest places on Earth and yet the Hum was "heard" in both.

This adds to the mounting evidence that the Hum is neither acoustic or electromagnetic and therefore must have some other cause.

I live in the U.K and i hear a hum at night, just audible but constant. Maintains a regular mid-range pitch without breaks. Maybe it's something to do with endtime approach; As Robert plant of LED ZEP sang in "stairway to heaven"; "Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know- the piper (krsna) is calling you to join him"

I know how you feel, as I'm in the same predicament. This hum is truly hell. Like I said earlier, there's nothing worse than not being able to get a good night's sleep, but when it's happening every night it's truly hellish, especially when you're none the wiser as what is behind this annoying hum.

I didn't think the hum could get any louder, but last night was the loudest it's ever been and as a result I barely got any sleep. I was listening to relaxation music before I went to bed and as soon as I took off my headphones, all I could hear was this truly loud droning noise. The noise just seems to surround you and comes from every direction. Wearing ear plugs just makes it worse. It's very rarely I hear the noise through the day, as it's more noticeable at night, probably because there's hardly any other background noise. Whatever this noise is, it's also affecting my bed as even my bed springs vibrate. The hum also affects me physically and appears to have an affect on my blood circulation and sometimes I end up with pins and needles throughout my arms & legs and I also get muscle spasms all over.

The people who can't hear this noise are the lucky ones, because it truly screws up your life. Some of my friends and family think it's funny, but I'm certainly not laughing about it.

Hum driving some people to the edge of suicide.

I wonder if other animals are being deliberately affected by this hum.

"Global Hum Threatens to `Deafen' Whales," I. Anderson, New Scientist, p. 19, Jan. 19, 1991. Environmentalists are at odds with oceanographers over the international ocean sound propagation experiment scheduled to start this month. They fear that the low frequency sound waves to be generated under water in the Southern Hemisphere could interfere with the acoustic communication employed by whales and other marine mammals. The experiment will determine if detection of sound waves at stations around the world will provide a means of measuring ocean temperature accurately enough to observe any changes related to global warming.

Somehow it wouldn't surprise me if ignorant scientists were behind this annoying hum.

Hi everyone,

I know I said I wouldn't "waste" my time with this anymore, but today I made a discovery about THE HUM. Today, the hum seems louder again inside and outside my house, so I went outside and pressed hard on my ear flaps (the little cartilage by the ear canal- name?). Guess what? I stopped hearing the ambient noises and most of my inner body noises but I could still sense the stupid hum in my brain. This tells me, that this so called sound is NOT a sound. So what is it? Some kind of energy that my brain is able to detect somehow...I don't know, but I bet there are those who do...

To all who sense this sound: try what I did with the ear flaps. Remember you have to press very hard so you don't hear your own body noises which can be very loud. Let us know the results. Thanks

I wish the "date of last post" would show the correct date...Hopefully, they will fix this soon.

Two more observations about the HUM:

To make the HUM temporarily louder/ stronger, blow your nose which makes your ears feel slightly plugged up and you will notice a difference in the strenth or loudness of the HUM.

Up until today, I thought the HUM could not be heard or felt at the beach because of the loud waves, but if you cover your ears by pressing on the little flaps as hard as you can stand, you will sense the HUM.
It is everywhere!

Everyone who senses the HUM should try to find out everything about it and report it here. Maybe someday someone with a conscience who knows what is causing it, will help us before our brains melt.

I too live in West Palm Beach and I have heard a humming noise since about the year 2000.

I had my ears tested and the first test the doctor did made me laugh. He used a tuner. He struck the tuner, held it close to my ear and told me to tell him when I no longer heard the sound. Well so much time went by that he repeated the instructions. I told him I could still hear it. An incredulous look crossed his face. He put the tuner to his ear and when he did not hear anything touch the tuner to his ear and the look became awe struck. He did this several times to both ears and admitted that he was quite impressed. When he used the audiometer he came to the conclusion that my hearing was just exceptionally keen and that I was picking sound distortions from the environment.

He believed that with the increase of objects that utilize radio waves that this is probably what is causing the hum I am hearing.

I have noticed a difference of late though, but it is not a hum. It sounds more like the white noise that you hear on a TV when no signal is being broadcasted. This noise is not static and it comes in waves and it too is directional, as some other had spoken of with the hum.

I don't know what answer he would have for this one.

By the way, I live way out in the middle of no-where so there is no noise or light pollution. Not saying it is quiet. I don't think anything can be nosier than a natural environment at night but the noises of nature are soothing and a sign that all is well.

Dr Baguley claims people have an internal volume control which helps us amplify quiet sounds in times of threat, danger or intense concentration. "If you're sitting by a table waiting for exam results and the phone rings you jump out of your skin. Waiting for a teenager to come home from a party - the key in the door sounds really loud. Your internal gain is sensitised." According to Dr Baguley, the problem comes when an individual fixes on a possibly innocuous background sound, and this act of concentration then triggers the body's "internal gain", boosting the volume. "It becomes a vicious cycle," he explains. "The more people focus on the noise, the more anxious and fearful they get, the more the body responds by amplifying the sound, and that causes even more upset and distress." Dr Baguley is now working with acoustic researchers from the University of Salford to try and find a solution to the problem.

I would try using a mp3 player with headphones and maybe some nature and ocean wave recordings , especially when trying to sleep.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA how excited I am to be reading your letter and that you live in Loxahatchee. If you read all my posts in the thread SHEDDING SOME LIGHT ON THE MYSTERIOUS HUM also, which I started posting to on 2/1/2010 you will see that we probably live close to each other. You might be the person who wrote to the PB Post Backyard Chatter about hearing the HUM since 2000. If you are not, then there are at least 3 of us out here.

Your experience with the ear doctor is why I never bothered going to one. I knew they would have no idea and that they are close minded to anything other than what they have been trained to deal with.

Believe it or not, in all my inquiries in person, I have only met one other person face to face who has heard the HUM. She was an older lady from New York on vacation in Puerto Rico who had no idea what the HUM was until I told her about my own experience with it. She mentioned when she vacationed in Cape Cod one summer she kept hearing this sound which to her sounded like an engine in the distance always there. And no one else in her family could hear it.

If you ever think you want to meet in person, just send me a U2U message. We can meet somewhere and talk and find out why we hear this HUM. By the way, I started hearing or sensing it on September 23, 2008 at around 11PM. I felt nausea which lasted a few days. Did you experience that? So many questions...We probably have a lot in common or not. WE know we have one thing in common: the ability to hear the mysterious HUM.

We have probably passed each other at PUBLIX or TARGET. I can't believe it has been 10 years for you. That is just unreal. I bet you are glad to read all the posts from all the people all around the world who like you are wondering WHY ME? WHY NOW?

Jump into a swimming pool and immerse yourself under a few feet of water... and see if you notice any significant change. That would be a good indication that it's environmental if you can detect a difference. But... if it's ELF related... you're gonna be SOL... because ELF is able to penetrate EVERYTHING.

I think there is a thread on here about people in the northwest US experiencing a lot of the same things.

Maybe you could read up on it, see if there is any similarities between.


Here's the thread...

What's shaking the skies of the North West?

Howdy neighbor.

I have not read any of your other post but I will as soon as I can. Unfortunately duty calls and the old abode is in need of bacon.

Curious... You have been sensing the HUM since 2000 and you have been posting to ABOVETOP SECRET since 2009 but you haven't written about the HUM before...
You have written a LOT. You must have a lot of free time.

Your spelling of LOXAHATCHEE is also curious.

To tell you the truth, it doesn't appear we have much in common based on your writing. I did a search by author and read a few of your threads.
You have so many.

You wouldn't remember if you heard a loud jet or rocket in the early morning hours of 2/17/2010? That's what triggered the HUM to get louder just for that day, but how? So many questions, and so few answers. When will it end?

I recently took a poll - I believe it was YouGov - it was a political type poll. It was normal. Then, at the end, I had a question about whether I'd heard a buzzing or humming noise lately.

I was like, WTH kinda question is that, but I said no.

I do hear sometimes, in my ears, but it goes away quickly, and, if anything, I've heard it less and less.
