Does our vision play an active role in the interpretation of sounds around us? What are your thoughts?
Misophonia is essentially a negative associated feeling, anger, and frustration with external sounds that are heard. These sounds can be someone chewing, clicking of a pen cap, tapping of a foot or finger, cracking knuckles, etc. I do believe there may be a correlation between what we see not being enjoyable, to that in which we hear. For those of you who have Misophonia or sound sensitivites, do you notice an increased disturbance to sounds after seeing who or what is making the sounds?
We are making continued efforts to help those with Misophonia and it truly starts with having a conversation…. Our clinical Audiology staff are dedicated to serving those with hearing, balance, tinnitus, and sound sensitivity.
