      I have had tinnitus which seems to be extremely bad and very difficult for me to cope with. Especially at night when I have had night with much as 2 hours of sleep.

      I have spent a lot of time trying to prove to myself the cause. It started happening 2 days after a smart meter was installed on every house on my street.

      I have seen my doctor who referred me to a hearing specialist. Both of which found nothing wrong and basically tell me i need to deal with it. I have spent the weekend sleeping at friends who have yet to get a smart meter installed. The ringing didn't seem as strong over the weekend but did not go away all together.

      I get back home and it seems to get worse but then i question myself if it is my brain that is telling me stuff that may not be true.

      I am one of those guys who has led a real healthy life and I work at home in a quiet environment so it is hard for me to believe that this just developed out of thin air.

      Does anyone else believe that their tinnitus has been caused by a smart meter or am I just crazy for thinking this may be a cause?

      Hi, Brad,

      I think you are on to something! I read your comments, and looked up "smart meters and tinnitus" on Google. Here's one of the links I found:

      http://emfsafetynetwork.org/?page_id=2292

      Apparently, you're not the only one experiencing health problems, including tinnitus, from smart meters. Sounds like they're a threat to our health! Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention.

      Hi Karen, Brad,

      Do you guys know what frequency these meters transmit on? We dont have them here in UK so I cant dig into, speak to your energy supplier and ask for specifications. If there transmitting between 2.4 GHZ and 5.8 GHZ , then I would be concerned.

      Thanks for your replies,

      I just read you post Joe but next time I phone BCHyrdo I will ask about the frequency.

      I talked BCHyrdo this morning about getting my Smart Meter removed and they are saying this is the first time they have heard about "ringing in the ears" due to Smart Meter and asked if I can go back to my DR and ask to see an Ears, Eyes and Throat specialist.

      I have setup an appointment already today so hopefully I get into this specialist quickly.

      Hi Guys,

      I have gone to the DR and they had already referred me to an Ears, Eyes and Throat specialist when they received my test results from the hearing specialist. Unfortunatly they expect it will take at least 6 months to get in... Awesome.

      I called BCHydro about the frequencies and all they did is point me to this document http://www.hydroone.com/MyHome/MyAccount/MyMeter/Documents/Smart_Meters_Report_on_RFE.pdf . I tried to read it but I don't fully understand all of the technical stuff. Here is a snippet about frequencies but I am not sure if that is what you were asking about:

      For example, immediately adjacent to a power meter, the RF field power density will be about 0.1 watt per square meter (W/m
      2) compared to the exposure limit of 10 W/m2 appropriate to the 2.4 GHz band.


      I am going to Vegas late next month for a week. I am hoping that my T disappears while I am there so I have another leg to stand on when I am talking to my DR or BCHydro. Guess I wait..

      Yuck! Smart meters - terrible EMF exposure for people.

      I would look into getting a Whole House Neutralizer that plugs into the house current to neutralize the EMF exposure. Aulterra makes one. I have one in my house and my business.

      I have a whole thread on EMF dangers and protection here.

      Keep us posted!

      Hi brad. I was quiet blown away when I read your post. I have been going demented with pulsating tinnitus for the best part of a year now, positively suicidal at times. yesterday I was in making my bed when the noise became so bad I could not bear it and ran outside.

      It was then that I realised this is what I always do and when I went back inside it started again. My bedroom shares a wall with the smart meter. I haven't yet checked the dates that the smart meter went in and my tinnitus became this horrible pulsating noise that has made my life an absolute misery.

      When I googled tinnitus and smart meter up you came.

      Looking through this has been such an eye opener thank you Brad

      Robyn,
      I hope you're able to get that smart meter removed from your bedroom wall, and moved to the other side of the house!

      Hopefully, that will solve your problem. Believe me, I've been suffering with pulsating tinnitus for almost 3 years now, and I know how life-shattering it can be.

      Good luck, and please let us know what happens after you contact the power company.

      Tinnitus is worldwide phenomenon and pre-dates smart meters for sure. If a newfangled machine installed in some parts of the country caused tinnitus, there would be a deluge of complainants and lawsuits by now. Also, removing yourself from the machine would stop the buzz, no? Or does one exposure change you permanently? Odd hypothesis. ​

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      radiation.
      Hi all

      I am from Holland, and have trouble with radiation from smart meters and wifi, gsm. It is found on a hospital allergy test.

      Unfortunately the neighbors left and right of me have smart meters, and one neighbor has a high power wifi mast which can reach 15 km, close to my sleeping place.

      Symptoms are severe, while a judge did order to give me clean house, who was in the beginning, but now I am back to where I was, tired, weakness, very bad sleeping, special very bad sleeping, tinnitus and ticking in my ears (this is quite sure from the smart meter) who do radiate on very high frequencies (8 - 10 Ghz for connecting to each other this transmit continuously in pulse form)

      I have measured the radiation with a professional meter, 9.4 Ghz is the max what it can do, so maybe the smart meter go higher, these frequencies are here for radar use, so this is not healthy, this is used to communicate between them, so if you live on a place where your neighbor is further away it gets stronger signal, I live between the two neighbors, but myself have no smartmeter, I did refuse, so the two others radiate stronger to each other.

      DSC_0604_zpsrhkmwnx6.jpg

      The frequency is in MHz, so it is max 9400 MHz = 9.4 GHz.

      regards

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      ???? I suspect Smart meters / Cell Tower
      I can totally Relate! Moved into a new apartment about a year ago and the ringing in ears / pulsing feeling in my body is nearly unbearable. I thought I was going crazy as I am commited to eating clean Vegan diet and have a perfect bill of health from my Dr. Took many months before I realized there are 12 Smart meters right on the other side of my bedroom wall! Also, they just erected a Cell Tower right accross the street from my complex. The ringing is very loud and almost ONLY when I am in my apartment. I do notice it in certain other parts of the city where there is WIFI but it is not even close to being as intense as in my apt. I recently went on a trip to FL for a week and the tinnitus was completely non-existent. I cant even begin to express the relief it was to get away from it! I spoke to the power company and they say they have no other complaints. I learned that they began installing Smart meters in my city in 2014 and are scheduled to finish the project 2021.
      Here is info on States that are switching to the new meters https://www.greentechmedia.com/arti...nts-to-hit-70m-in-2016-90m-in-2020#gs.1Y4Wu58
      Watch the Smart Meter company CMP skirt the issue when required Safetly testing is questioned by The Supreme Court .
      Maine Supreme Court Smart Meter Oral Arguments...


      It seems one can ask to "Opt Out" of the Smart Meter but not always as in my case because I rent. Also, if you own your house and opt out there are additional monthly charges on your power bill. Asking home owners if they would like to opt out is not happening, They are just installing them without telling people.
      I am looking to move.

      3 months
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Smart Meters
      I moved into a new apartment 3 months ago, and after about a week, I began getting Tinnitus. Now it is constant. It gets lower, and sometimes goes away during the day when I am away from my apartment. My bed is on the other side of an brick wall where 3 smart meters are ganged up.

      I suffered my first case of vertigo recently and I am 41 years old, with a history of good health.

      These smart meters are poisonous. My brain is being microwaved.
