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
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.
