Repetitive sounds are annoying

Chewing, swallowing, deep breathing, mouth smacking, typing on the keyboard, tapping of fingers on the table and rattling noises are among the most disturbing sounds in this disorder. The common feature of such sounds is that they are generally repetitive sounds. The response of misophonia patients to these sounds is usually in the form of feeling angry or restless, and they try to avoid or escape from these sounds.” said.

Misophonia begins at the age of 9-12

In addition, people with tinnitus also have misophonia.” he said.
