  2. Glad I’m not alone. Most of my immediate family have this condition. My ultimate worst sound is someone slurping soup off their spoon. Aaargghhh.

    • Soup or hot drink slurping is the worse. I have to ask them to let it cool before they drink it – I just cannot stand the sound of the squelching and slurping. It disgusts me beyond words.

  5. It’s a relief to know others feel the way I do. Just need to try and gain back control of my life.

  6. I have had this for years thinking that I was just impatient with people who made these noises. It explains why my Mum used to shout at me when I was eating an apple. So Mum had it without realising she had the symptoms, the problem is what can I do about it? My wife makes annoying noises every night just taking moisture face pads out of a packet. It makes me feel guilty for being annoyed at her.

  7. This affects my every day life to the point I have to work at home to avoid the open office. I thought I was going mad until I found you fellow nutters

    • With you there. Work is a nightmare, people loud on phones, clicking pens, tapping fingers, bangles on mouse hand clonking desk every few seconds (put it on the other hand or not clonk at all ?). And leaving the ‘di-donk’ sound on PC – why ? No-one understands at work and I am called ‘over sensitive’. No … just stop making uneccessary noise people … 🙄

  10. Nice to know it’s not just me. There are so many noises that annoy me. The latest one is my partner clicking on the computer mouse. He just thinks I’m mental but it is seriously driving me mad!

  12. dogs drinking water, people typing on keyboard and the way people drink drive me insane. I feel bad for my dogs because they need water but I cannot handle it.

    • Dogs drinking water and keyboard typing are definitely top triggers for me. I know exactly what you are talking about and feeling.

  13. I used to think I was just crazy but I guess it’s more common than I thought. I didn’t know what it was so I googled my symptoms and found this quiz. I often an unable to fall asleep due to small noises such as rain dripping outside of a family member taking it watching tv. I still struggle with this daily, and it is a tough thing to handle. Good at least to know I’m not alone.

  14. I HATE PEOPLE WHISPERING SO MUCH! I have flown into a rage and mimicked the sound of whispering. But my husbands chewing I can talk myself down from the fence. Dogs drinking, eating, slobbering,or licking themselves! The fan in a bathroom. I have disconnected every single fan in every bathroom everywhere I have ever lived! That stupid fan can drive me crazy to the point that I want to scream and find something to knock it down with. Bathroom fans will be the death of me! My husband and I are separated and this is one of his biggest complaints he says i am mean and rude and a bitch. Thats not it I swear, I just can’t handle the sounds and I get upset and try to avoid and I get annoyed at the person making the sound. I do get rude but I cant stop it it is like that person that is making the sound it feels like they are torturing me! For years I have tried to explain this to him and he just doesn’t understand. Maybe now I can explain it and he will finally understand. Thank you so much!

  15. for me it is fluctuating sounds from low to high and high to low like people talking, multiple sounds sources fluctuating ex. people talking over a tv or radio. multiple sources of sound or one conversation in a mainly quite room. low uniform sound like a fridge or ac unit does not. loud noises high volumes are also no good. I guess my main problem is constant fluctuating sounds in a space that would other wise be quite. others have notice it bothers me and they can not understand it.

  18. For me it’s repetitive noises – the main one is if someone is clicking the top of a pen on and off. I have to confiscate it!

    Reply
  19. For me it’s two hard objects rubbing against each other, like a coin sliding on a counter, dog nails tapping on the kennel. Lately even certain textures give me the heebee geebees. I feel like I’m losing my mind.

  21. WHAT A RELIEF!!! After all these years of my husband and son calling me crazy after I would yell at them with total rage to stop sucking on their teeth or when they would whistle, or when I would look at someone desperately wishing I had Iaser vision to burn them to a crisp for chewing with their mouths open, I know now I am not alone nor am I crazy! I feel awesome!!!

  22. Music at work, music next door, music upstairs, music in shops, music in elevators, music leaking out of headphones, music in other peoples cars, background music in documentaries or video games. And babies; any time any place. My god I’m such a grouch!
    Get me back to Planet Mongo LOL

    I found doing the questionair quite theraputic, thought my score would be higher. 32.2%

  23. I hate people chewing and drinking noisily. I can deal with pen clicking, leg tapping and finger drumming as these are things I do to calm my anxiety, but people making excessive noises when chewing really drives me up the walls, and that ‘aaahh’ thing after someone takes a drink??? Ugh. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who feels this way

  24. Everybody thinks I’m insane. I have it super severe. Basicially every thing bothers me, any mouth sound the worst. I want to tell everyone that noise sensitivity is a symptom of Lyme Disease. I have Lyme and being treated for it has been improving my misophonia.

  25. The worse things for me are crisps and chewing gum. And I can’t bear getting the train home too late as there are always people eating burgers on the train after going to the pub.

    I carry round a set of earphones that I can whip out in an emergency, otherwise I have to move seats and get out of the carriage.

    People who think it’s funny and do it on purpose when I’m around makes me want to punch them. They have no idea! 🙂

  26. The worst by far is when people talk too loudly, it makes me want to commit murder, scratch my ears off, and go hide in a corner all at once. Other things are tapping feet, the sound of walking, anything to do with a chalk board, and any sudden noise. Good to know I’m not alone and maybe I can finally get the confidence to aks people to talk a little quieter around me.

  27. Oh wow, I just learned about this, and boy does it explain me and my interactions. I have so many triggers. It’s true you think you are going mad. I always referred to my problem as sensory overload, as it was the best way to describe it to others.

  28. For me the worst is having to listen to a person’s voice becoming high pitched when excited or talking about something upsetting. Unfortunately, this includes my husband and best friend. I hate trying to talk when music is on or in the din of a crowded restaurant. I’m exhausted by any of the above.
