Constant music

Recommended Posts

I had my second CI surgery on March 19 and was activated April 3 with my Rondos. My first CI was problem free and super exciting. This one has had a few hiccups. First I love the Rondos. They are so comfortable and easy to wear. I can't tell much if any difference between them and the Sonnets. However, the CI in my lft ear has had some difficulties. Maybe a week after activation, I noticed that I hear backgound music almost constantly. It's always instrumental and usually light classical. However, for about the past week, it's entirely Christmas carols.(Which is going to get extremely tiring if it continues.) The music doesn't interfere with voices or things I want to hear, it's just always there.

Has anyone else experienced this? Does it go away or at least get more infrequent?

You maybe experiencing musical tinnitus.  Search for it online and see if it matches your experience.

 

I am glad you like your Rondo 2s.

Wishing you the best.

Wow, @Anita C. I hadn't heard of that before.  I hope the Christmas carols end soon.  I love them during the holidays but they're annoying about eleven months of the year.

I went searching on Google and found something called Musical Ear Syndrome. It seems to stem from deafness not the cochlear implant itself. I think it's kind of like when  there's no sound, your brain inserts some? After my second CI surgery, I couldn't hear anything at night when I had taken off my first CI. Now I've regained some residual hearing in the second ear so maybe it will go away? I hope! Christmas carols in May get tiresome. (I get sick of them in December!)
