Sorry this is a strange one.
From time to time and I think its when I am stressed I get what I call white noise in my head when I am resting .The easiest way to describe it is its like tinnitus in the ears but this is definately in the head.Does anyone know what this is???

KP our bodies and minds have many reactions to stimulus and sometimes it's better to accept that it's nothing more than that than worry about it. If you really want an answer have a chat to your GP or psych but stress really can make your mind & body jump through hoops!

I too have the white noise in my head. I used to notice it allot more than I do now. It seems to me that mine started when I started with a specific med. I don't think my doctor really understood what the problem was but asked if it was enough of a problem to stop the med which it wasn't/isn't.
By the way, if I "talk" funny" it is because I live in the US. I was searching for this type of forum and there you were. Mental Illness is mental illness wherever we are. And this is my first post. I will start another thread because I have another problem to discuss.
Thanks for being here.

(y)Thanks for the laugh. Now that is what I will remember if/when it starts to bother me. A laugh will be a great diversion.

And when I do sleep I wake up feeling like--if only I could get some sleep.

And people seem to think because I'm not "working" I am living the "good life". i wouldn't exactly call it that. :unsure:
