Currently we do not know of any confirmed cure for misophonia.

However, members of our forum have some suggestions to help reduce the intensity of triggers and discuss possible treatments. You can find the Support Forum here

Some people believe that avoidance of triggers may make the condition worse yet others find stress can be reduced by avoiding triggers and/or learning coping mechanisms to use when exposed to problem sounds.

Paying attention to the basics may help. People who have a healthy and balanced diet, engage in consistent and adequate exercise and manage stress may have less intense or less frequent problems with sensitivity to sounds.

pic02Some possible treatment methods to explore are: Neuro-Feed Back, Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), psycho-therapeutic hypnotherapy and “rewiring” the brain’s reflexes. The use of sound generating equipment, ear plugs and sound masking audio may be of use and are things to learn about and consider. Some people have had success with some of these methods of treatment and symptom management.

Don’t give up!

Explore all the methods other people use to see if they are helpful to you. Many people find ways to reduce the symptoms they experience and in so doing, help make their lives easier.

Various treatment methods will be added to this section when they become available for review.  Have you heard of a treatment or had success with a coping mechanism? Share it with others!

I have had this condition since a young age. I am now 70 years old. I didn’t know what to call it. A couple of years ago I found out about misophonia and it’s discription fits me to a T. It seems to be getting worse the older I get.
I live in the Long Beach area of California. I have to plan going out to eat. I have developed relationships with some of the restaurant managers over the years. I go in and explain that I have a hearing problem that magnifies the noises in the restaurant, in particular the music. Why do they feel they have to blast music when people want to visit with the family, friends that they came in. They are NOT at a concert.
This afternoon my husband and I were at a new restaurant near our home. The music was very high with twanging guitars etc. I told them my problem and that when I hear loud music I just want to get up and flea the situation. They were kind enough to turn it down until we leave.
Just before we got ready to leave another waitress came over and asked how our meal was. We begain to talk and I told her they could turn up the music because we were leaving. Turns out that she has had this problem all of her life. She appeared to be about 25 yrs old. She got tears in her eyes when I explained it to her. I wrote down misophonia on a piece of paper for her and she was coming home and getting on the Internet to do more investigation. She says she has had a lot of problems with her family about this. Now she is going to enlighten them.
If anyone wants to talk, please e-mail me @ LFrancone1@aol.com.
