Noise Sensitivity

Individuals with noise sensitivity have difficulty tolerating noise. Depending on the underlying cause, individuals with noise sensitivity may experience an adverse emotional response or even pain when exposed to the sounds that trigger their symptoms.  In some cases, individuals may also have difficulty concentrating and controlling emotions when exposed to noises that seem like normal environmental sounds to others.  Ringing in the ears or tinnitus is related.  Many individuals who are sensitive to noise also experience ringing in the ears when exposed to noise.
