plugging the ears with the fingers to make silence and in the silence i hear what seems to be a modem or a digital signal with electrical tones. Does anyone know why or does anyone have this?
It could be common enough not to suggest a sickness, but not really sure if Tinnitus is the right name for it. Ten years ago I would hear only tones like chords on glass bells all the time. I would spend those years in silence and solitude often. These intellectual sounds would be constant and unchanging, or changing too slowly to notice. Nowadays it really does seem much different--really like a computer. Something probably more like digital HAM radio modems than telephone modems.
