music playing in my head

Posted , 5 users are following.

Since i entered menopause 2 yrs ago, ive noticed that i usually have a song playing in my head. Its not anything unusual, its usually a song i will have heard whether it be in the grocery store or at work.

All i have to do is hear it once, and its with me for hours maybe days..its really batty, and makes me feel cray cray!

Like i say, it doesnt matter what the song is, i will just incorporate it in the background of my mind and it will be playing, you know you you cant get a song out of your head?

Well

this is what im talking about..anybody experience this?

The only thing i can think of is that im very auditory and play a bit of music, and know a lot of music? its so unnerving. I know im sane, but why the hell do i have to hear music all the time..so weird and frustrating..

xoxo

    Apparantely its called earworm a term used when a song gets stuck in your head for hours or days. It can be triggered by stress, memories and triggers in your envitonment not just hearing a catchy tune. If you google earworm theres lots of interesting articles about it. Also can be called brainworm, sticky music, stuck song syndrome. Im relieved its a thing and not me going insane through this peri hell.

      hi Sarah hi Suzanne

      I believe it must have to do with hormones because I never experienced this prior to losing all my estrogen basically menopause you know?

      I never had this prior and so there has to be a direct correlation you ladies and others have it .

      I hate to say it but I'm glad I'm not alone it doesn't happen all the time but pretty much I'm going to have some kind of song playing in my head . unless I'm busy at work

      xoxo

      thanks so much for sharing ,

    Yes I definately think its hormones or somthing to do with feeling wired quite alot during peri, stressed, anxiousness produces more cortisol in the brain so perhaps its that to. I woke in early hours this morning with a song on loop.
