In your case, a likely cause of new onset tinnitus with no ear or hearing abnormality is medication side effects. Among your medications, Citalopram is know to cause tinnitus in few patients. Another possible cause is hormonal imbalance caused by perimenopause. I would suggest getting in touch with your prescribing doctor soon to discuss these possibilities. The specialists to see are ENT and neurologist.
