What is Misophonia?
Misophonia (also known as Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome) is literally translated as ‘hatred of sound’. The term ‘misophonia’ was coined by Pawel and Margaret Jastreboff. They realised that misophonia is different from other disorders like hyperacusis and phonophobia and is therefore an entity in its own right. In recent times, the disorder has fortunately become more recognisable, and, as research continues, there is now some help for misophonia sufferers.
Where does Misophonia come from?
Thought to be neurological in nature, misophonia tends to manifest itself in childhood. Misophonia sufferers have many trigger sounds in common, and also tend to develop new triggers over time. Most trigger sounds come from other people, and they typically include chewing, breathing or sniffing. Other common triggers include clocks ticking, keyboards clacking or pens clicking. Frustratingly, many people with misophonia have not had their symptoms taken seriously. However, recent studies have shown that there are differences in the brains of people who have misophonia and people who don’t.
When a misophonic person is triggered, they experience a severe involuntary reaction. This is typically a high level of anxiety, and sufferers often feel angry towards the person triggering them. This can lead to the use of avoidance as a means to cope with misophonia, which, of course, can have a detrimental effect on a person’s long-term wellbeing.
What help is available for Misophonia?
We know that there is no known cure for misophonia at the present time, so there is no one specific treatment as such. However, some people benefit from interventions like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or other psychological therapies. Therapy can be very costly though, and, for that reason, it is not easily accessible to everyone.
But, there are different ways of coping, and different techniques that we can use. One treatment that can be very effective is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). EFT involves tapping on certain points on the body. These specific points are known as meridian points, and tapping them helps us restore the body’s natural energy. As a result, we feel much calmer and more balanced.
