Humming on the back of your neck when you are hungry

Humming in the head: that could be the cause

Many people complain of a low, constant humming noise that they hear but that doesn't seem to have an explanation. In most cases this is tinnitus. Such noises can be a strong nuisance and even cause illness themselves. If you are unsure whether the noise is coming from outside, you should clarify that first.

  • Ask your family, neighbors, and people in your neighborhood if they can hear the sound too. The sound may be coming from a public installation, such as a power distribution box, that you didn't know about.
  • Do you only hear the sound in certain places or at certain times? Then you should keep a record of it, i.e. write down the place, time and duration. If you have a rough idea of ​​when and where the noise is strongest, the best thing to do is to take someone with you and ask them how they perceive the noise.
  • If you can only hear the noise in your home, you can try to switch off electrical devices (e.g. your refrigerator) and installations (e.g. the heating) individually and one after the other.
  • In addition to electrical appliances, there are many other possible sources of humming noises: vibrations from subway trains, airplanes, distant road traffic, magnetic fields generated by electricity pylons, and the like.
  • In any case, it is important that you look for other people affected. This not only makes it easier for you to find an explanation for the noises, but also perhaps for colleagues against the interference.
