Could you explain hwhat does the chanting sound like? Is it in your own voice or someone else's voice? Is it like a song that keeps playing in one's head all day long or something else?

my daughter has this problem. her doctors call it psychosis mixed with OCD. when the doctors and psychiatrists make changes to her meds it goes away.

they did assess my daughter for dissociative disorders to see if the problem was related to any dissociative disorders but the key factor for my daughter was that it didnt stay with her all the time any time she encountered a trigger and the problem had no specific trigger to make it happen like DID alters have accompanying symptoms.

because her voices and chanting did not fit the kind that come with dissociative disorders they went on the belief that it was medication induced psychosis, or other psychosis disorders mixed with her OCD. Chanting / rhyming/ singing or saying the same word over and over again is one of her OCD problems.

I notice it every so often. It comes and goes.

Perhaps it's your way of calming anxiety? I sometimes say rhymes or chant in my head when I'm very stressed.
I'd say no one here can give you a diagnosis as we have very little info.

I hope you'll find an explanation for it and learn to manage it if it keeps causing distress.
If you realise it's a coping mechanism it's OK. People have used chants as stress relief for thousands of years.

I am not quick to make assumptions here as the problem could be physical. It might simply be your hearing the vibration of your heart beat via your inner ear. This happened frequently to me as a child when I had a great deal of ear/nose/throat problems. When they were at their worst I would hear what I could only describe as a child as marching. But come to think of it, looking back on it now, I would say it in fact sounded like chanting.

Try taking your pulse and see if it matches the rythym of the 'chanting' you are hearing.

Do you have ear/nose/throat issues? Do your ears plug up? Do you often get sore throats? Do you have sinus or nasal issues?

It might be wise to eliminate then a physical source for this experience.

No I dont have any of those problems. This has been going on and off for over for 20 years.
