Misophonia: When sounds really do make you “crazy”

– Posted in: Commentary

Misophonia is a disorder that causes people to suffer emotional responses caused by common sounds such as breathing, yawning, chewing, or a baby crying. This disorder is generally embarrassing and people do not mention this to others, including their own doctors. Research has proven people who suffer from misophonia also exhibit physiological signs of stress and were triggered by specific sounds. There is no definitive reasoning for this condition, however studies have led to a connection between myelination and misophonia but more research is needed. Clinics exist and treatments include auditory distractions and therapy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Misophonia is a disorder that occurs in people who are negatively impacted by sounds such as chewing, yawning, and breathing.
  • Although many health practitioners do not usually recognize this type of disorder, it has a major affect on an individual’s mental health.
  • Researchers have observed that those who suffer from Misophonia express greater signs of physiological stress from these trigger sounds, than those without it.
