Misophonia is a term used to describe a reaction, most often negative, to sounds around a person. There are many ways in which people describe these sounds such as disturbance, irritating, hate, frustration, and many other offensive ways. Sounds such as sniffing, eating and chewing, or clearing the throat can cause such distress that a person may find it necessary to leave the room where they are hearing these sounds. A person that has such sensitivity to many of these natural sounds may easily feel anger, bitterness, and dislike of being around that person making the noise.
I am quite interested in Misophonia and believe there are ways to help offer hope. We are currently pursuing various means to offer relief from these disturbing sounds. In other words, we plan to help reduce the negative affect that these sounds cause to once quality of life. We begin the process of helping with a meeting to thoroughly discuss a persons concerns, evaluate hearing and tolerance, and plan for…a better way… to handle these troublesome sounds and reactions.
Together “we do believe” there are ways to offer hope….

It also so interesting to know that Misophonia can also be triggered by sight as well as by sound! This is such an interesting subject and seems like there is so much to learn from patients who are experiencing Misophonia triggers.
Thank you Jen! So glad that you mentioned that. I am eager to learn as much as we can to help those with Misophonia!
Having hope is so important! As always, we learn so much from our patients.
It sure is Kelly. Hope is so important and learning from patients is a key! Thanks!
Those noises can certainly drive you crazy!! It’s good to know there may be help!
