Brief Answer:
Hearing function and imaging of brain to evaluate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

This form of auditory hallucinations ( i.e. musical ones ), may be caused by conditions such hearing loss, seizures, brainstem lesions ( stroke for example ), encephalitis, etc.

They differ from auditory hallucinations encountered in psychiatric disorders that consist mainly in hearing talking voices.

Examinations such hearing function evaluation and brain imaging ( MRI ) are necessary to understand better your condition.

Discuss with your Doctor about these issues and getting evaluated further.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
