I can clearly hear a beating drums loudly, it happens from the time I wake up until I go to bed. It's constant, it never changes, nothing makes it better...even If I go somewhere else it's always beating drums noises.

It sounds a lot like that rap-music boom boom boom music from car stereos but it's much deeper and much much louder and offensive.

This has been going on now for about 1 month and it is not stopping.

I am slightly convinced that someone or something is playing games with me, maybe implated some device in my brain to make those noises happen without my person.

I'v dreamed of destroying car steroes in the neighborhood since it might be from car stereos...not people, just car stereos..

I take about 12 meds for bipolar,paranoid personality disorder and schezoeffective disorder as well as generalized anxiety disorder.

This constant drums noise is making me angry too, I want to do somehting about it now, not later but now..

anyone have any suggestons?

Going to a mental hospital is not something I will do:mad:, I've done that 5 times already and it never helped:mad:..

  • Whoa, with taking twelve different meds I'm surprised you can walk or type. Personally I'd slowly detox off those meds. With so many meds, how can you or the doc even tell which if any are helping or hurting? That is crazy. I would ditch the meds and just try tranquilizers, sparingly. PS, ZOMG I'm your biggest fan haha

  • Evening, Does the rate of the beating change or is it always the same? If it is variable with your heart rate, perhaps this is a clue: Pulsatile tinnitus is a sound from within the body, mostly of vascular origin, that stimulates the patient's hearing in the same way as an external sound does, generally at the same pace as the pulse. Although not frequent, the diagnosis of its cause is crucial because of its potential severity in some cases. This article describes some of the diagnostic clues for arterial causes (arteriosclerosis, aberrant carotid artery, arteriovenous fistula or malformations, increased vascularization in Paget's disease) and venous causes (benign intracranial hypertension, high jugular bulb). In some cases we have to rule out other systemic diseases as hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia or hyperthyroidism. A pathological otoscopy result may be secondary to a tympanic glomus. A guided medical history and an algorithm for complementary tests (magnetic resonance or angio-resonance imaging, computerized tomography, blood test, Doppler ultrasonography) may resolve the diagnostic puzzle of pulsatile tinnitus. Ask your doctor about a physical and non-psychiatric cause. Good luck.

  • If you hear a sound that sounds like a constant whooshing or heartbeat sond, it may be pulsatile tinnitus. See http://www.whooshers.com for more info and support. You can leave comments in the comments sections.

  • Just hearing drums? That is odd. I've heard things for seven years now. Aside from voices I've heard honking horns, music...but never drums. Maybe it is overmedication.P.s. I like drums.
