does anyone have experience with hearing noises (that aren't there). No voices but will hear snips of music (often familiar ringtones or other music or repeating sounds of traffic or occasional dialogue from media). I tried explaining this to rheumatologist via phone (through 2 nurses) and was told stop plaquenil and f/u with ENT because plaquenil can cause tinnitus. But everything I have read about this states that complex sounds (music, language and varying noises) are not tinnitus. Anyone have experience with this? some days its like riding 'It's A Small World' at Disney and hearing the song for the rest of the day.
