I haven't got any answers for you but I think you'd find Oliver Sacks book "The man who mistook his wife for a hat" realy ineresting. One case in his book is an old lady who starts hearing Irish folk music. After unsuccessfully looking for a source:radio etc she concludes it must be in her head. She later remembers that she had heard the tunes early in her childhood when she was about five.A CAT scan showed she had had a small temporal lobe stroke.After a few weeks the musisc which she found pleasasnt faded away again. Also in the book Dr Sacks showed experiments in which people who'd had different parts of there temporal lobes stimulated had al sorts of specific musical and auditory hallucinations.
Perhaps your temporal lobe is a bit hyper at the moment-not realy surprising an SSRI wouldn't cure things as its stimulatory. Anyway the books realy interesting,
