Doctors aren’t sure what causes misophonia and there is no completely effective universal treatment for misophonia. Awareness and research is being done and this site has been asked to publish the invitations of researchers to participate in data gathering. People with misophonia are asked to partake in surveys and questionnaires. In this manner, the search for effective treatments can be studied and hopefully a treatment will eventually be found.
