About 6 months ago I had a neighbor move in (apartment building) who played music with strong bass in his bedroom, next to my bedroom, with hardwood floors, and suddenly I could hear it - or maybe feel it - in my ears.  I could hear/feel the bass beat, constantly changing but also repeating, throughout my apartment but mainly in the bedroom.  At times my ears would hurt when the sound was loud.  Then one day as I was lying in bed I felt my bed vibrating when the bass was strong.  No one else could hear this sound or feel the vibrations but a vibration meter showed vibrations in the floor.  I would not hear the sound when I left my apartment.  I have had tinnitus for many years but am able to ignore it.  I recently moved but things have not improved.  Is this hypersensitivity or something else?

You mean you can feel your ears vibrate from the music?

I have something similar to that in my right ear. I think it's either due to hyper-vigilance about sound or tension due to the muscles being tight.

Hi Frege, yes that is what it feels like.  I only hear it in a quiet room and not when I have background noise.  And it is definitely more of a problem in my left ear.

Hmm...is it only that sound in your apartment? Do you experience it strong bass in any other areas? If that's the case that it is only in your apartment maybe it's a misophonia type thing.

I had the same thing in my left ear in the beginning and I'm hoping that once the hyperacusis improves in my right then it will go away. I'm also hoping the tinnitus improves too like it did in the left ear. However, the tightness I feel near the ear and I noticed it today in the muscles near my jaw leads to think maybe I'm clinching or grinding my teeth at night.

Hi Frege, I was away for a few days and I came back to see your reply to me and also Jewel's recent post - I believe I have the same disorder that she has so maybe all together we can figure out what is going on.
