Noise sensitivity is becoming a common complaint among fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue sufferers.
According to a poll, it ranked as the second highest sensitivity among fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue sufferers.
It might be the volume level alone, it might be a repetitive sound, or it might be a multitude of sounds — no matter the source, it can cause anxiety, panic, and even widespread pain as the receptors in our brains become overwhelmed.
I have not noticed a single noise or sound that repeatedly affects me. For example, some days I can listen to the TV at a certain volume and other days it will be too loud. I think I become more sensitive to noise during flare ups.
I’m also more sensitive to noises when I am stressed out, which unfortunately stresses me out even more.
