Re: music tinnitus: Question for Jay Others

Are any of you who experience what appears to be music-related tinnitus heavily involved in some form of music endeavor such as composition, arrangement, instrumentation, critical listening / study or performance?

I ask this because for many years I was deeply involved in such ways with music as well as electronic synthesis, music concrete, natural sounds, etc. In those days music, or other aural phenomena played in my head much of the time. Some days it was nearly constant.

Particularly when I was involved with composition, I experienced the spontaneous composition and arrangements of music in my head complete with a fairly wide dynamic range. Although I didn't mind it so much and often enjoyed it, sometimes it was a bit maddening since I could never find the "OFF" switch easily.

I'm seldom so involved with music these days and haven't been for quite a few years. Over time those episodes of music and sounds have mostly disappeared although I do experience it occasionally. Most of the time now my head is full of other forms of racket.

I've recently started treatment for severe (reoccurring) depression. All indications so far seem to indicate that I'm most likely Bi Polar II or at least have some bipolar component with my depression.

I'm wondering if my hypomania during many of my periods of music involvement and creativity might have contributed to my experiencing a sort of internal Boom-Box. It seems to make sense to me.
