> Ok... make that, pseudo-hallucination. I know it isn't real.
> Anyway, this is a bit scary... it's happened a few times in the last couple of weeks. I hear music coming from somewhere else in the house. A couple of nights ago it was an orchestra playing a film score, tonight it's Soundgarden playing "Fell On Black Days".
> I read something about people OCD experiencing "musical OCD"... where songs play vividly in their heads. I have OCD... and I constantly have music in my head. However, this music seems somehow both in my head, but also coming from an external source. Anyone have any info as to the nature or origin of something like this? Could it be my meds (Effexor XR and Risperdal) or is it a manifestation of OCD or other psychiatric problems?

There have been strings of posts about this topic in the past. Try a search on "intrusive music" or "musical OCD". I have the same troubles as well. SSRI meds make it much WORSE for me however, which makes me think that it isn't a manifestation of OCD (in my case). Meds that make it dramatically lessened for me are anticonvulsants (esp. Depakote and Neurontin), which make me believe it is a temporal lobe phenomenon related to my bipolar disorder. Have you talked to your pdoc about them?
