I’ve been thinking about this for the last while. I have constant tinnitus. As many here do.
I also seem to always have some kind of repeating and sometimes different ear worm running in my head. My definition of ear worm is some snippet of a song that plays over and over non-stop in ones head.
If I listen to other songs with something catchy then that’ll play repeatedly for the next short while and then it comes back to some tune that has been playing for quite some time. Some time ago it seemed to be a different tune.
So I’m wondering if maybe perchance the ear worm is an unconscious defense mechanism to attempt to distract the brain from being too aware of the tinnitus.
Anyone have tinnitus and constant ear worms or am I just some kind of psycho ?
