Welcome to Misophonia Online, a website that answers the question “What is misophonia”?

 

Does hearing someone chew with their mouth open cause you to become angry? What about gum chewing, eating noises, or repetitive tapping and crinkling? Do you have a strong negative reaction to some sounds that goes beyond mere annoyance?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be experiencing misophonia.
When you experience a misophonia trigger sound, does it seem like other people don’t even notice the noises that strongly affect you?

If so, you’re not alone! Many people also have problems with specific sounds, and this condition has a name. It’s called misophonia.

Misophonia is not caused by an actual hearing problem. The latest research suggests it is a kind of sensory processing issue. Misophonia elicits immediate negative physiological responses to certain sounds (that vary from person to person). These are sounds that most people don’t even seem to notice.

This sound sensitivity can have adverse effects on a person’s life. It causes problems with everyday activities and interpersonal relationships. And, social isolation can result from trying to avoid triggering people and events.

Sounds are the most common source of misophonia triggers, but visual triggers also exist. Misokinesia is a name now being used to describe having visual triggers.

This website provides information, coping mechanisms, and tips to help manage symptoms. The question “What is Misophonia?” has many different answers. That’s because each person has their own trigger set. Reactions and sensitivity levels also vary quite a bit.

Welcome to an introduction to misophonia and a resource for information on this sound sensitivity. This website is the place to get answers to your questions about misophonia.
