I have felt vibrations that no one else could feel my entire life. In the last 15 years it has slowly and progressively gotten worse. It's not sound so much that i'm sensitive to, it's the vibrations...and its not even just my ears, its my entire body that can feel it. More so, now I can tell which vibration is which and where each is coming from. I can feel a car running downstairs 30 feet away and at the same time feel my AC unit running. I really don't have a problem with it during the day and while I'm awake but while I am sleeping it's really starting to wake me up. I used to have insomnia because of this until I figured out how to cure that with natural meds. But even through my meds it's effecting me quite a bit at night with the air conditioner and my Gf's fan in the bedroom. I've never heard of anyone quite like me before and I would like to know if anyone had any tips for sleeping aside from things like earplugs that don't work. Once again I feel these vibrations throughout my entire body, it never hurts me or anything..it's just effecting my sleep.

How amazing is the human body! There is some mechanism, somewhere, that is setting this in motion. For the sake of trying to come up with a constructive suggestion, I am guessing that there is a stimulus-response chain, either physical or behavioral, that has been established. You might have been born with it, or it might have been established over time, or even just a strong situational rsponse, in even one experience which you may or may not remember. What to do about this? Have you tried relaxation therapy and/or hypnosis? I think both together might bring you some relief.

In the mix, I'd suggest some cognitive-behavioral therapy to address what may be a habitual pattern, with anticipatory elements. (Situation brings about response).

If you can find one therapist who is experience and well trained in all three modalities, (check credentials), so much the better.

I'm not saying "It's all in your head." I don't know, and I doubt anyone would know without knowing you better. What I am suggesting is that "mind over matter" might be the approach which allows you to break the stimulus-response chain, whatever the etiology might be.

Best wishes for luck with trying to reverse this response.

Best,
Cheryl

I usually use the mind of matter approach for anything and everything I find any kind of difficult. For example anytime I start to hiccup I can just think and stop it immediately (my gf loves this trick). As a matter of facts I can control several aspects of my body that most people cannot. An example of this is I can move both eyes in whatever direction I want, meaning I have excellent muscle control. So like most people I do not want to dull my senses into not feeling these things anymore, I feel like it's a part of me in a way. It's kind of like having a not-so-super, super power....lol. It's just that at night when I am most calm and sitting still I can feel my entire body vibrating to the Air Conditioner. Normally I like the feeling and go with it but sleeping while vibrating around is a bit tough, it's not exactly like rocking. I know this is a bit off the cuff but could I feel the vibrations more easily because I resonate with that particular frequency?? Just a side thought as I am a much more spiritual being than physical.
