View Full Version : Anyone else have this sensitivity?

I can't go near hydroelectric turbines or similar equipment. It feels like someone has plugged a power source into the base of my head. I can't stand it.

I remember crossing a river above one in Scotland years ago, progressively getting weaker and weaker as I got to the centre and clutching the back of my neck. I had to run across to the other side to get away from it.

Anyone else experience this?

Ok, maybe I will reword this....

I seem to have a sensitivity to something that doesn't seem to bother others. Or maybe it does.

It tends to be around machinery. It doesn't necessarily have to be loud (although I am sensitive to sound), but it affects me by making me feel weak and I find that there is a lot of discomfort in the back of my head. This has been happening for as long as I can remember.

It seems to happen around turbines and other things that create energy. Strangely, it also happens when I am swimming in a pool with one of those leaf vacuums in operation, just not to the same extent.

I've asked others around me when this happens if they experience something similar and they say they are perfectly comfortable.

So, I was thinking perhaps these things are emitting a frequency that I am sensitive to. I'm not sure if this is possible, but I can't otherwise explain it. Perhaps it is psychological??

Does anyone have a theory on why this might be happening? I have googled, but can't come up with anything. It's been bugging me for years.

It's not something that I share with people much IRL, for obvious reasons. :D

I remember reading about the concept (for the first time a few months ago) of Dirty Electricity. In a nutshell, when electricity is used over and over again, it picks up "impurities" a sort of electrical contamination. This dirty electricity (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17178585) has been blamed from everything from diabetes to chronic pain to asthma. Interestingly, there is even some evidence that dirty electricity may cause or worsen attentional deficits, i.e. dirty electricity may affect ADHD (http://adhd-treatment-options.blogspot.com/2009/11/dirty-electricity-and-adhd.html).

Who knows, it might be a bit of a longshot, but perhaps fitting to this discussion. Any thoughts?

It could be sound too high or low for you to hear.

I believe that would be similar to entropy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Introduction_to_entropy).

This summer I visited a wind farm on a good windy day so that the wind turbines were active. The wind turbines weren't necessarily loud, but we could hear a constant whir from them, sort of like the sound of a plane landing. On top of that there was a higher pitched sound that we could hear on and off as it was probably just beyond the frequency of our hearing.

I started getting a pretty bad headache while we were there that really only went away after we were on the ferry back from the island. I think its the large range of frequencies that can come from machines like that. Some people can be more sensitive and their bodies will react differently, some not at all.

I am very sensitive but personally I love anything that gives me a buzz.
