    Misophonia is a barely recognised medical condition in which the sufferer develops a strong sensitivity to everyday noises, most commonly eating and breathing sounds. The triggers are often close family members, and the resultant emotions are anger, panic, and even extreme rage. There is no increase in auditory activity, but rather an enhanced limbic and ANS response. Limited research in the USA has recently indicated that it is a neurolgical condition.
    I am researching causes and treatments, which are as yet unidentifiable, and would appreciate any information and insight into this condition.

    Hi tara,

    Would you mind telling me, what is your profession? You say you're researching the causes, and yet you have already stated that the research in the USA, which your taking your lead from, has indicated that it's a neurological condition (?). At this point in time, what type treatment do you envisage?

    I had never heard of this - but google threw up a lot - inlcuding a UK Misphonia group. It is the sort of thing where I suspect you need to be very sure the information you are getting is accurate and credible. Any evidence on treatments is going to be anecdotal at best.
