My Mom is 83 and has a history of hearing "zings" in her head and this has never been diagnosed. She recently was told she has migraine headaches and sometimes sees flashes. She has told me she hears voices in her house, she lives alone, but she doesn't hear the words, just the sounds. She thinks she hears a woman and her little girl and my Dad, who has passed on. I think some of the identification of voices is coming from past experiences, but I wonder about the sounds (voices) she hears. She is taking Citalopram 40mg and several other drugs for: high blood preassure, heart disease, metformin for diabetes, beta blockers... Any ideas?

  • That is actually normal for a person who reaches that age especially if she is longing to be with her loved ones who she misses much. And there is also possibility that it is the effect of the medication she intakes.

  • check her diet for deficiencies. does she eat enough fruits?I would also suspect that it is a side effect of the drug mix.google the drug interaction.also check the air quality of her place.best.
