I am having this buzzing in my ears for a while now. The condition is called tinnitus ,and is considered as a symptom of underlying possible condition varying from sinusitis, high blood pressure and in a worse case even brain tumor.
However, I believe that that mobile phones use is responsible for the increased number of people affected with this condition.
There are many other possible reasons, and in my case I think that long hours spent sitting before computer are not good for the circulation in neck end shoulders, therefore, in long run is affecting nerves and vessels in the brain, creating swishing and buzzing. It is also possible that the brain is overstimulated with electronic input (too much of everything - sounds, pictures, movies, PC games, forums, facebooks, works, news, CPU fans are always producing sounds, monitor's emissions are not benevolent either...)
So I don't expect to get very clear special messages out of that noise, but am seriously considering to get a break from electronic pollution, and go to vacation.
I agree with all the reasons stated, but what if for once it were different?

There are hundreds of reasons for having ringing in your ears and that is per person. There probably thousands of reasons in general why people have ringing in their ears. Logically tennitis, loud noise reverberation, blood pressure, damaged ear drums, infection, and the list goes on and on.
To immediately assume that everyone's reason for hearing the ringing is on in the same, requires a large basis of evidence leading to that.
I feel I need to remind readers of that, so I posted.
Good luck with that ringing OP. I know mines won't stop for anything and I've had mine since I was a kid. I don't have it checked by a doctor, because I've learned to live with it.
To an earlier poster, i too am laughing as get nearer to 2012, The false prophets are popping out of every crack in the ground, and the prophecies are getting wilder and wilder. This post does sound like a false prophetic message, but personally, my opinion is that nothing is going to happen until the day we all think in unisen that nothing is capable of happening. That's the irony of total destruction haha.

That buzzing in your ears is tinitis and you should all get it checked. Its a severe medical issue that can lead to psychological issues and temporary insanity if left unchecked.
Its not a religious experience, its a medical problem.

Do some of you truly feel all of these people suddenly got tinitus?
There's something MUCH deeper going on. Thousands of people are not suddenly getting an illness.
