Two possibilities immediately come to mind, I have the same problem when
my monitor is in the wrong position because I have a pinched nerve in my
neck (physical). OR you could be one of those few that are
hypersensitive to certain vibration ranges (see below).

This leads back to the hypersensitivity point. Our ancestors were
sensitive to the changes in earths magnetic field, and built many
monuments along "ley" lines (stonehenge for one). We have been so

The last two are "away from the noise" occasions. You should probably
seek that daily, as in living arrangements that promote this "head
As I said at the start, this is all IMHO.
Of course you will also hear ALOT of .... "See a Shrink" replies, and
