I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of someone gaining hearing? I am 23. I have always had hearing that was slightly under average. Within the past month, I have begun being able to hear flourescent lights and high pitched sounds that most people aren't able to hear. Am I becoming a mutant or something :lol: no, but seriously, has anyone ever heard of this happening? :?:

Thanks for any and all responses!

Sorry, I havent heard of this before. Its probably that your attention to these sounds is getting better. Good luck with your improved hearing. Use it wisely! ;)
