Hi im a 31 year old woman ive been diagnosed with ocd and panic disorder at age 15. Im wondering if someone can help me with a ongoing issue ive Had for 8 yrs I get this noise on the left side of my head near my left ear it sounds like there's a crowd of hundred people chattering fast chattering kinda like its a busy shopping centre and hundreds of people are all chatting at the same time this noise /sensation is only on my left side its and internal noise not external I dont think its different people but it sounds like it is. Normally when ive experienced this brain thing, it last for a week or two and it happens once a year but this time ive had the noise since November last year with only three days of a break. The other symptoms ive had since November are intense panic attacks and ocd has gone high cause im obsessing about this noise in my head, pms has increased since November to a point were im feeling rage during pms and I mean im agitated over small things which is not me. Ive seen a doctor had blood tests and hormones checked everything is normal but yet think im not well. I have no symptoms of psychosis just this noise no delusions or break from reality i also dont have bipolar symptoms so im stuck with what the hell this werid brain thing is does anyone relate to this.

    Hi Alison... I haven't experienced what you are going through but I just wanted to say if there is nothing physically wrong from results of tests perhaps you should push your gp to refer you to someone who can help because I imagine this 'brain noise' is driving you scatty. It would me.

    Let me know how u get on ... Wendy

      Hi Allison, I am not a doctor orprofessional of any kind, just someone who has bipolar affective disorder, but from what you describe it may be a mental heath issue - 'do you hear voices?' being a question psychiatrists used to ask me before I got my diagnosis.

      I would DEFINITELY get a referral to someone from the GP who can help sort this out for you.....

      I wish all the best
