I have a question to all of those affected in the Hyperacusis Network...

 

1. How many of you use the computer on an-ongoing basis?

 

2. For how long at a time?

 

3. Do you feel anything coming from the computer? i.e.: noise? statics? nothing?

 

4. How many of you watch TV and feel affected by it?

 

5. If affected by the PC or TV, do you do anything about it? If so, what? Briefly please.

 

 

------------

I think I may have some solutions to some of you that have not been successful with many things. It is very simple and it may work right away with a simple thing you can do by yourselves at home.

 

Looking forward to some replies and trials.... let's figure that out guys!

Hi Frederic, I use the computer about 6-10 hours a day.

I think I usually do feel more tired after longer hours, but I get cranky in a way after playing Solitaire, and it's weird but it happens.  

When I spend to much time with the computer sometimes really fast vibrational echo shakes in the ear, if it's for 3/4 days I can't talk! 
That's the most irritating!  That started this year, and it's occasional, haven't had a bad experience for a while now, sometimes I'll feel it after my folks continue sharply and loudly vocalizing clear crisp letters which completely drive me insane, or just waking up, or after a night on the computer.

Without my hearing aid, in a quiet house I usually hear rumblings almost (the fan right now) and my brain is ascatter trying to comprehend the noise, but if I'am in the kitchen I can hear my neighors shut the cardoor, and when people talk loud, I'll jump or get startled, it's so various.

3. Do you feel anything coming from the computer? i.e.: noise? statics? nothing?         Nothing, except I feel stuck in my chair and my eyes are too sensitive to bright lights, I prefer using the computer without my hearing aid on, but then when someone comes in they think they have to yell at me instead of coming up and talking to me or poke me on the shoulder and talk normally.

 

4. How many of you watch TV and feel affected by it?
Nothing, except I feel stuck in my chair (tension from living at home), my eyes get sensitive to the TV, and start feeling dry which has just started this year.



5. If affected by the PC or TV, do you do anything about it? If so, what? Briefly please.      I have an orgone pyramid cone above the computer and my TV.  I just know that as soon as I put the orgone cone  (from california), on top of the PC, the speed off the Internet was 10 times faster, but maybe that was also using Mozilla around the same time??


I have an orgone device ontop of my TV (feel nothing), but that's one supposed to be for plants?  I'am not completely believable about how orgone products work.

Hi Freddy,

I work on my computer about 6/7 hours a day and watch tv about 2 hours a day. It does seem to effect me, but I'm not sure. I know for sure that using my cell phone effects me: it gives me major ear pains. 

 

What would be your suggestion?

Hi Freddy

1. How many of you use the computer on an-ongoing basis?
Yes I do. I'm working on a computer at home and also at work.

2. For how long at a time?
For 8h a day, sometimes less

3. Do you feel anything coming from the computer? i.e.: noise? statics? nothing?

Not really. As I had severe hyperacusis the fan noise was irritating me all the time. Since my hyperacusis got better I dont worry about it. I often listen to pink noise, music, or both while I do my work at the PC

4. How many of you watch TV and feel affected by it?

I do watch TV 2h a day. I feel comfortable except if I had a noisy day and my ears are 'worn out' (ear fatigueness)

5. If affected by the PC or TV, do you do anything about it? If so, what? Briefly please.
I managed to set the fan noise to silent (BIOS setting). My computer is very silent I guess. I have set the contrast of my screen very low and the brightness very high. I think this is very eye friendly.

I think I may have some solutions to some of you that have not been successful with many things.
I very curious and looking forward for your reply!

love
Simon
