This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are hearing music.

this can be a type of tinnitus or ringing in the ears.

you should see a doctor and get hearing testing and an MRI scan of the brain.

shingles is caused by the ckicken pox virus which can lay dormant in your body

when your immune system gets run down or if you are not getting enough sleep or not eating right or if you are getting older, the virus can come back as shingles as a painful rash on the face in a nerve distribution.

antiviral medication pills and creams can help shorten the length of time this shingles rash is out.

a shingles vaccine can still help decrease future chances of the virus coming out.
