Sound hypersentivity: Too broad question. Cause of sensitivity? Treat the cause! trauma psychological or physical can trigger hyper response to stimuli , even though sound might not have been part of the trauma. Part of hyperarousal, state of hyper stimulation, easily startled...Treat the cause. If cause not found or not remembered (child trauma-abuses), specialists can still help find cause by different modalities.
