i too have seen the lights,looks like a kites tail. The first time it happened I was sitting on the couch,could see it with peripheral vision only,when I move my eyes it moves. Close one eye,stays in the other,vice versa. It always lasts Exactly 30 mins. The last time there was a lot more detail,filled more of my vision. This has been happening for 4 yrs.

In response to the ringing, I too, as well as my husband, have the same thing going on but in this post (woohoo...my FIRST!!) I'll just talk about my experiences.
The sounds abruptly began after an out-of-body experience I had almost a year ago. It's been constant ever since and increases in loudness/intensity quite often which is really a trip for me because I can clearly hear it above the pounding surf that goes on 24/7 here at the house. And, as with many of you, it seems to be worse as of late.
I can't say that it drives me crazy because I'm truly captivated by it and am interested in reading what others have to say as to what could be the cause. Oh yeah, when in bed, I can concentrate on it and sometimes will hear a faint clicking noise too. Click click.........click..........click click click............click.....etc., but only in my left ear and not all the time. Weird.
For me personally, I don't believe it's tinnitus because it's in both ears (tinnitus is usually in one ear) and I don't have hearing loss (tested yearly). I have not seen an MD for it and I'm likely not to.
Mine sounds like ciccadas in the trees... some or most of you may know what I mean. It's maybe not as harsh, kind of a "softer" sound, like a loud "HISSSSSSS", but at about the same pitch, or as one poster mentioned, sand flowing through an hourglass but multiply that sound a hundredfold.
The occasional very high pitch that many of the posters have reported having intermittently is also something I experience probably once every other day on average. A few weeks ago, I encountered a very low, bass-like hum in my right ear as well. Now that was an awakener!!! Never experienced that before or since.
To put icing on the cake, I was sitting at the computer a few months ago when all of a sudden, there was a "line" (for lack of a better term) about 3 cm wide, iridescent, and semi-transparent that I could see going down the page, vertically.
I was mesmerized by it. I kept reading from left to right and the "line" followed to the right and would return to the center when I began a new line. After a while, it remained to the right and I tried to "look" at it... it was almost like a bunch of crystals, stacked one upon the other, vertically in the right edge of my right eye. I kept scrutinizing it trying to figure out what the heck it could be. It was just beautiful. Iridescent crystals of blue/pink/yellow glimmering in my field of vision. Just awesome. This all lasted about 3 or 4 minutes and then it just disappeared.
I guess it has nothing to do with the OP but I felt compelled to throw it in. My gut feeling tells me that it wasn't a physical thing, but a spiritual one.
In closing, I'm happy to share that this new experience is actually ok with me, it beats my constant back pain by a longshot!!
I sincerely hope it's related to an elevated sense of being in tune with what's going on with the planet this year....
Love to all and thanks for the great thread...

Of course I know there is no scientific way to correlate
this ringing with Earth changes or dramatic happenings,
but it's really pronounced for me lately and I'm glad a few people
can relate to it and the feelings of some kind of event or change.
Does anyone else have the ringing mostly in one ear?
And then all of the sudden it'll get really loud for a few seconds
and I feel dizzy and as if the pressure
had just changed dramatically?
And I'm so glad you posted OP. You've been a member for a long time.
I appreciate threads from members like you.

I've had the same thing happen- Ringing in my ears and a sense of dread.
Something bad is coming, but who knows what. Brings me back to late July when the movie shooting happened, I had a dream that I was walking and someone was shooting up my local theatre, then began shooting people in the street. For some reason, the guy followed me home and he looked just like James Holmes, except he was wearing a baseball cap (don't know if the reports mentioned if he was wearing a hat of some sort). Luckily, the dream had a happy ending and I managed to ward him off with my stepdad's handgun.
Now with the whole volcano/earthquake issue mentioned in the thread and Turkey and Syria going at it, we have a plethora of events across the board that might happen between now and the future.

I have the ear ringing too. And see the spots once in a while.
If put my fingers in my ears, the ringing stops..
Does it stop for you guys if you put your fingers in your ears?
Ummm...........Why Wrabbit, why.............Why did you have to bring up that annoying high frequency noise. I was quite happy having it on...ignore, but you just had to bring it back, didn't you. Anyway, yes i'm a sufferer as well, and no It's not a tinnitus ring it's much higher in pitch almost on the edge of hearing it's so high and sometimes damn loud.

Has anyone else been having periods of hearing a very high pitch tone/whine? It's almost like tinnitus or the ringing I'd get after shooting without good ear protection for some reason but without the marsh-mellow fuzzy aspect. it's just that very high high pitch whine and it comes and goes. More the last couple weeks than ever and I never noticed it at all until a month ago. The last week just seemed to be a lot more noticeable and my other half mentioned she's heard something too...prompting me to wonder if others may as well?edit on 4-10-2012 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
