      She agreed to a general going over but not anythng more.
      If I ever get 'bothered' heavily by the hum again I will go to the

      and yes, my doctor wanted to write it off as tinitus at first....I
      added more details, then she upgraded her theory to auditory
      hallucinations....I pressed on, adding even more descriptive
      details......that's when she furrowed her brow and said, ok, come in
      and we'll check it out next time it gets bad.

        My doctor was initially convinced that it was a form of tinnitus. He said when hearing cell clusters begin to die, you can hear all sorts of strange noises.

          My doctor was initially convinced that it was a form of tinnitus. He
          said when hearing cell clusters begin to die, you can hear all sorts of
          strange noises. But when the cells are dead, the noises vanish. As I
          was leaving I asked him if it was possible that my neighbour could hear
          my 'tinnitus?' I could see him take that on board. With the ENT
          specialist, I took a folder of articles, part of the DEFRA report, other
          info about how far lfn carries and audibility thresholds, msge from Bill
          Curry re EM, RF and dirty electricity, possible but unknown transduction
          methods, a description of the common denominators of how people hear the
          hum and the demographic oif hearers etc. I think it would be useful
          to put together a package to give to professionals - from credible
          scientific research sources plus personal accounts. I would do it
          myself but have little energy at the moment. Good luck all, TG for the
          forum, Maggie

            That's an EXCELLENT idea! I hope someone might be able to find
            the time to cull-out the best stuff from our messages and our
            file sections, and put together a 'package' which would be worthy
            of presentation to doctors, newspaper & radio folks, etc.!?
