tsohl thank you for your reply
i don't believe that it's tinnitus, although i'm not really sure what that really is.
i believe what i had was an auditory hallucination, i have had them once or twice but it was when i was under major stress and i heard a family member saying something that they hadn't said. there were witnesses to this.
this time i was alone and not under any stress either time. although i have been more and more depressed every day lately. i don't know if this may have had anything to do with it or not. i have a pdoc appt. on friday and will deffinitly talk to him about this.
it's just that it really freaked me out. it sounded so real and i couldn't find what was causing the sound. it's winter, there are no birds around. they were so loud and there was some other noise in it but i can't describe it. it was the chirping that got to me. i think i'm just going crazy.
thanks for listening it's always nice to know someone is listening
