You may have this condition: Objective bilateral tinnitus from palatal nystagmus. ENT and Neuro docs may help you. The medications you have been taking are less likely the cause of this syndrome. I have hundreds of patients are on this regimen.

Palatal myoclonus is an excellent thought and should be investigated.
