Musical hallucinations without hearing loss

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey everyone. For about 3 days now I've been having these nearly constant musical hallucinations, I think when I first wake up in don't notice them and then they get louder. My hearing was checked a couple of months ago and I have normal hearing. I am 18, btw. I do have other tinituses in my head, in my both ears for maybe 5 years now? It's high-pitched buzzings and I'm used to it. They resulted from headphones. I avoided headphones for about 4 years but now I'm in a place where there are other people so to watch things I'd have to use headphones. I tried not having them loud. Still there was this song I listened to a lot cos I liked it. At home I always listen to songs without headphones. But a few days after me listening to it these hallucinations appear. I don't know why. I read it's very often because of hearing loss but I have none. I do have anxiety and some depression sympthoms. Right now I am burnt out as well. Was this because I listened to this song so much? that's weird because it had never happened to me before even when I listened to headphones 4 years ago.. Does anyone know why this is happening
