Hyperacusis - a condition of extreme sensitivity to sounds

If you find that people around you lack sympathy for your inability to tolerate very lound noises from certain sources, suggest that you both go and look up the condition of 'hyperacusis' at the hyperacusis site. It was only through this site that I came to some understanding and tolerance of the level of complaint about dogs barking on this forum. I was also able to explain changes in my own reaction to some sounds. In fact, as people age and their range of sound detection changes, they are likely to respond differently to sound. Potentially we will all know someone who will have a hyperacusis experience at some level at some time.
