Hear radio inside my head

This is not something I find the least bit flattering to me. In fact, I think it makes me sound odd, and possibly someone with psychological problems, but I have been hearing music in my head for years now, and I believe it was the same time I either got my first neurostimulator (occipital/frontal), where the electrodes are under the skin of your forehead and behind your head at the base of your skull or some fillings in my teeth. They happened around the same time and I never had fillings before and that was my first neurostimulator. I received another one this year, for the cervical spine, to help with pain in my neck and shoulders, that is also helping my migraine immensely, and the music is louder. We have asked their customer service departments who have asked their engineers and they both said it was impossible. I was thinking tonight, because my remote isn't working for the migraines (occipital/frontal), could it be possible that two fillings in my teeth could pick up this music. I think it is a radio from a tower only two miles from our house (we are rural with no neighbors within a mile of house.) One filling is just an average filling with that silver coloring, and the other is very tiny. I have only told two people it so humiliating and I don't want a moniker to follow me.

    Do you only notice it at home? Have you compared it to a radio (to see if a station matches what you hear)? I think the reason they say it is impossible is because radios transmit modulated frequencies and you would have to demodulate the RF in your head. It would be more likely that you are picking up audio from a nearby radio that is turned down.

    right after my car accident It drove me nuts. I would wake up and fumble with the alarm and any other music source. Country music, classical, crooner...all staticy through. I think it was from the fan and I trained my brain to assimilate it back with the white noise of the fan. Then several months latter a friend and fusion patient came for a visit and she asked me "do you hear a radio playing?" I laughed...this was in the living room and a fan. Good luck. You are not crazy. BTW, do you have TMJ? Some people get that who do.
  • I often hear it in my room and I, too, think it stems from the fan.
