Outlets affected by cell phones??


Each time someone drives by my house using a cell phone it seems there is a one-time clicking noise coming out of several of my electrical outlets. It may happen in all rooms at the same time but of course, the only ones I notice are in the room I am in currently.

Any ideas, and thanks!

There is nothing in an electrical receptacle that can click. I don't know what you are hearing.

It's not so much a click as a "tic", and frequently it comes down from the top of the wall. When several of these are going at convenient intervals, I get extremely warm with flu-like symptoms. It's almost as if the current is "coming out of the wiring" and "into me", but I know that doesn't make any sense.

I've spoken with many trolls who have these same issues with their electrical outlets. There is a support group forum somewhere online but it is very hard to find and use as all of the forum members have been banned.
