In brief: Depends on diagnossi

Do you know why you are hypersensitive to sounds? This could be a neurological issue, it could be due to migraines, it you've had this all your life it could just be congenital.
Is it one or both ears. If only one ear, could be something serious, a problem in that side of your auditory system, worse case scenario a tumor. Unlikely, but see your dr. To rule out something serious but treatable!
