Hi,

How are you?
Acute noise sensitivity is also known as misophonia. Some of the known causes of misophonia are migraine, barbiturate abuse, benzodiazepines, hangover, rabies, hangover and meningitis.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?

Hello,

You seem to be having hyperaute hearing. It may be due to magnesium deficiency. Try taking some magnesium supplements and see if the condition improves.

Many people have reported increased auditory hypersensitivity during periods of stress and anxiety. Sometimes medicines like aspirin, Benadryl, Beta blockers, Motrin etc causes increased sensitivity to sounds.Pls check these conditions.

Trauma like whiplash injury and damage to the auditory system through exposure to loud noise can also cause hyper acute hearing.

If none of the above conditions can be recognized in your case, then you may be having hyperacusis. Hyperacusis is a condition that arises from a problem in the way the brain’s central auditory processing center perceives noise. It can be due to head injury, ear damage or ear diseases, post-traumatic stress disorder or migraine headaches.

I feel that you should take magnesium supplements for some days and see if your condition improves. If not, then pls consult a otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor) for a full audiologic evaluation.

Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing.

Hi,

Yes long term use of ambien has been associated with increased noise sensitivity in some individuals.
Are you still on ambien?
Please discuss this with your doctor. Also remember ambien has to be tapered off gradually and should not be stopped suddenly.
