A good number of hard of hearing people hear phantom music. I get emails like this one all the time.
“My husband hears phantom music and was embarressed to tell me. He is quite normal. Is a ear, nose and throat doctor the first doctor to visit. He talked to his regular doctor who said he didn’t know much about it and said he would get back to him but has not.”
Unfortunately few doctors, whether ear specialists or not, know much, if anything, about the phantom music many hard of hearing people hear, thus they are not much help in providing a solution.
However, there are solutions. You can read a very helpful article on the subject of Musical Ear Syndrome.
For more in-depth information on Musical Ear Syndrome I suggest you read my new informative book, Phantom Voices, Ethereal Music & Other Spooky Sounds. It not only shows numerous causes of MES, but also explains 8 ways to control or eliminate it. Just point your browser to Musical Ear Syndrome book.
