    Power or Problem ? I have grey noise - that's what i call it and i need advice.... Hopefully from some sensible people...

    I have this ability to create "grey" noise within my head. It sounds like electricity (like the lightsabers from star wars when they aren't hitting things). I just think of this "power" and i can start and stop the noise. More specifically, i feel a tension on each inner ear drum when i do this.

    My eyes can be open/shut and it doesn't matter. I CAN'T move things when i do "it", nor can i read minds. I can't predict things or see into the future.

    I am not sure what i can do with it (possibly nothing?) - but maybe, just maybe, i can do something incredible with it. Wouldn't that be great ! And possibly the person who helps me discover this will get some sort of nobel prize or discovery award ?

    Anyway. enough of the granduer, i would just like to know if anyone else has this, or if it is a disorder of some kind (Ear problem?)

    I am NOT crazy/unemployed/wierd/on drugs or anything else, i am university educated within I.T, but i have no experience with the brain or chemicals or whatever....... Yes, i have seen X Files, and I am not sure what i believe. I am married, 2 kids and am middle class.... Pretty ordinary.

    Any advice ?

    Stephen

    Possibly some kind of synesthesia? Dunno. See a doctor.

    yes, thought i would get the doctor response....

    I have seen a few doctors over the years, but all of them dismissed it like i was making it up, or "ringing in my ears" and it will go away.

    Only one doctor seemed to be half interested, and he just said he wasn't sure what sort of test he could do apart from some costly brain scan/mri etc, which he was not confident would not show anything.. he said people wouldn't be interested as I couldn't give any example of affect (not sick or tired etc)...

    Any other advice is welcome...

    Thanks

    Sounds like tinnitus, which is a condition a majority of us have experienced in some form or another. It can occur as persistent ringing in the ears, humming, or white noise. Your particular control may merely suggests how you are able to enhance or suppress your perception of this condition. From another perspective, the grey noise could result from cranial, ocular, jaw, or neck muscle tension, which you consciously control, that radiates as sound to the inner ear. Regardless, your experience doesn't sound particularly unique. However, I have heard that such sound inducements could be used as a means of mental relaxation or to reach some state of mental focus. Otherwise, you may want to consult an ENT specialist or mental health profession should your experience becomes involuntary. I hope this helps.

    I could not find Superhero Syndrome in the DSM, at least not pertaining to the desire for some sort of special power derived from some physical anomaly. Maybe it should be there.

    I don't think its good that most people gave the "see a doctor" response. It might partly be jealousy in my opinion. If you can turn it off and you want it off then leave it off. It could be some type of an ability. I would explore it. Who knows.

    Why not? That is the most logical response. People here on internet forums don't always have specific training. Also, they generally lack all of the information required to make a valid diagnosis or analysis. You could mention things and we can rattle off all sorts of possibilities. However, the poster will never know what is happening until specific tests are run and examinations performed. Could be tinnitus. Could be cancer. Could be a cold. Could be the huge gash caused by the brick this guy just got hit with in the head which he failed to mention.

    I'm just saying... Go see a doctor is the ONLY valid response to medical questions put forth online.

    Unlikely. This is roughly equivalent to suggesting he's riding on a unicorn.
