Unsure What's Going On


My husband and I recently moved into a new apartment. A few days after settling in, we started noticing a vibration sound (Like when you have your cell phone on vibrate, and it goes off) but our phones weren't going off. We would hear this sound all over the apartment.

My husband would be in the kitchen, hear this vibration, look around and it would stop.

I was once in the bedroom, I left my phone in the living room, my husband was still at work, and I heard this vibration, like it was right next to me. I started to look around for the source of the sound and it stops. We've noticed if we ignore it, don't look around for the sound, or don't talk about it while it's happening, it continues until we start to question it.

There was one time I was coming in the front door, before opening the door I heard this rather loud "vibration" sound, it was so loud I thought my neighbors would start to complain of the noise. As soon as I opened the door there was no noise.

I know this isn't just in my head because my husband hears it too. Could this be a "ghost" trying to get our attention? Mess with us? Or is it nothing at all. Has anyone experienced anything like this before? If so, how did it turn out?

We are not scared, or feel uneasy about this. We are just unsure on what's going on.

Could it be the lighting in your house? Or power lines? Or something electrical in your house? Since nothing but noise has happened my personal opinion is its NOT's a tone/noise made naturally by something electrical...but...I could be wrong. I hope that is all it is... For your sake!
Blessed be.~

It seems there are a lot of people on the Internet discussing unknown humming buzzing noises recently. Try a search. Some theories are govt. Programs, alien/satanic beings trying to cross into our world.

BadJuuJuu, no its not a dumb question! We looked into that. No one lives below us, there's only 2 apartments per floor, and we both think the apartment on our floor is to far away to have this sound coming from them, and we live on the end of the building, so there really is no one around us.
From the time I posted this until yesterday (about a week) we had no issues with it, I walked into the apartment yesterday hearing it.
Moongrim, I have been woken up by it, I think it bothers me more than my husband. He never hears it if hes home alone now. Have you ever found out why its occurred to you?

I've had similiar experiences with vibrations and weird phenomena. The most annoying times were when I was woken up in the middle of the night by it, and by moving my head around, discovered that the vibration/noise/buzzing was centered around my head.

The closest to the vibration rate I've been able to replicate is a 60 hertz buzz that fluorescent lights give off.

This is probably a dumb question, but could it be coming from an adjoining apartment? I'm sure you've already looked into that possibility, but had to ask.
