Did you know some people suffer from a rare form of tinnitus known as musical hallucination (MH)?

This is when they hear music when there is none. The sounds are typically heard as short fragments of simple melodies – often from very familiar music, especially hymns and carols.

Although anyone can experience MH, it is more common in women than in men, as well as in those over 60 years of age.

Individuals who live alone and those with hearing loss are also more likely to experience MH.
