    I get that! Earlier today even I got a weird musical ringing sound, but there wasn’t it anywhere. But I have Bipolar Disorder along with Anxiety Disorder and Depression, so probably not the answer you want to hear.

    But I do think it is normal to experience it at times, whether you have a psychiatric condition or not.

    I wasnt sure how to vote.

    I say no, I have not experience this.

    I have never heard my friends comment about it either way.

    I can’t say I have an opintion as its not something I have ever thought about or discussed with people. I may be abnormal in that it dosent happen to me.

    @Rachel631:  I THINK I have experienced the first two; definitely the first one and I think maybe the second? I know other people who’ve definitely experienced the first; loads of times at work my (different) supervisors have been like ‘Did you call?’ and I’m like ‘Nope’; funnily enough, the time I get this are also at work when I’m supervising, so maybe that has something to do with it? (being in a noisy, high-pressured environment where colleagues are calling your name when they need something) Maybe it’s like a pre-emptive thing?

    It terms of psychiatric disorders, I’ve had depression on and off since I was 11 (last bout was about 3-4 years ago) and also PTSD; no other disorders.

    The first two happen to me all the time! My mother too and we’re both completely mentally healthy. 

    I get the “is the phone ringing?” thing a lot when I’m expecting a call and the tv or radio are on, I’ll go turn them down to answer my phone only to find our it must have been the music from the tv/radio.

    I used to live next door to an elderly lady who couldn’t hear very well and her ring tone was set really loud, I could hear it through the wall and I could also hear her talking. I thought I was going crazy hearing things for a while! lol

    But I think these auditory hallucinations are completely normal. Since they happen to me when I’m expecting (or half expecting) someone to phone/call out my name I guess that’s how my mind interprets similar sounds? I don’t know, that’s the only rational explanation I can think of right now.

    Happens to me frequently and I think it’s pretty normal.

    As far as I know I have normal psychology…

    The first two happen to me all the time. And I don’t have any psychological issues!

    I think the phantom phone ring is very common – I think scientist have actually done studies on it.

    @Rachel631:  It should be “between Darling Husband and me” 🙂

    Anyway, sometimes I think I hear my phone when it’s someone else’s, but I assume that’s not what you mean. Otherwise, no to all 3.

    p.s. Where’s the option for plain old “no”?

    @Rachel631:  I’ve definitely thought I’ve heard my phone ringing, and constantly think I hear someone calling my name (although my name is Claire, and that rhymes with quite a few words so I could just be picking up on the ‘air’ sound).




    As far as I’m aware I’m ‘normal’ psychiatrically speaking, although I have had some anxiety issues in the past, these haven’t been crippling and I’m very aware of myself in terms of that.

    @Rachel631:  My Dad sometimes takes pleasure in reminding me that his mum got dementia and that “it skips a generation”. Thanks Pa. That’ll go nicely with the Osteoporosis and Gall Stones I’ve got to look forward to from Mum.
