Please Help Me, I'm Extremely Sensitive To Sounds!!
 
I am extremely sensitive to noises. when i hear someone sniffle or clear their throat, it sends me into a manic state and i start screaming and swearing at people. i can't help it i just can't stand the disgusting wet sloppy sound of people sniffling and i hear it everywhere at school. i have to wear ear plugs all day long, but it still doesn't completely block out the sound. I also scream and swear at just about anything that bothers me (ex: screaming at a pain in my foot). I've been on medication and it doesn't help.
Can someone please help? I'm so desperate

thank you.

Camilla,
It sounds like another visit to your doctor is in order. Are you seeing a therapist or psychiatrist? Perhaps another type of medication and/or counseling might be able to help. I wish you well.

Camilla, it is definitely related to anger. I have a friend and we BOTH experience that. Its not to as great a degree and it ebbs and flows based upon my success in managing my other anger related problems. I can not speak on the medication issues but I can say that the better I can control my annoyance and anger at other things -failure, disagreement etc, the better the noise issue becomes.

Keep trying different medications - be patient as it can take time. Also.... get your thyroid checked. A malfunctioning thyroid can send people into incredible states of depression and anxiety.
