Sounds are upsetting: Are you bothered by sounds like background noises that other people can drown out or don't pay attention? Do small noises drive you crazy?

Misophonia : Gaining a better understanding about this condition and determining if related to other entities such as ocdp and tourette are important first steps towards effective treatment for you and coping for your loved ones. Regarding it as a possible evolutionary advantage could also be advantageous. Humorous mimicry with those your comfortable with, acupuncture, and talk therapy may also serve helpful.

No: The annoyance of processing unwanted sounds- chewing, swallowing, sounds that lead to situational irritablity are often treated with SSRI;'s ie fluoxitine with partial success. For the most part I hear that persons adjust their environment and lifestyle to minimize these disrractions.
