Miso Infographic

This infographic is the introduction to Allergic to Sound’s new ‘explainer’ series.

It’s for anyone who might be new to the term misophonia and also for parents, friends, loved ones trying to make sense of all the information online.

Throughout this series I’ll do my best to explain the science and latest findings in simple and, where possible, visual terms.

    Thanks for this article. I do have a number of sensory issues including a hyper-startle reflex that may be in part to a diagnosis of PTSD and Ergophobia. It is tough when telephone sounds trigger panic and angst (because you always have fear you did something wrong).

    Background sounds on the phone when other people are talking make me turn the volume down low and get off the phone quicker.

    Right now I’m looking for ringtones that are easier on the ears.
