Does Smells Affect And Sound

Does Smells Affect And Sound

I have a hard time with some types of odors and makes me more sick. Was wondering if others have same problems? Loud noises affect me to as well do lights.

I also have the problem with smells making my head hurt or making me feel sick. Music with a repeative beats
and songs of today that say the same line over and over. It really gets on my nerves and makes me irritable. There are so many things that bother me, such as the "spider feeling" crawling up my leg. Missing a key on the PC Keyboard and the piano. People saying that there is always someone worse off than I am. I agree, however, that doesn't cause my pain and etc go away.

Smells, lights and noise, have them all. There are some things that bother me, certain perfumes, javex, cleaning supplies, certain scented candles. I have found over the years these things have gotten worse. I have migraines so I really never not noticed it. I also find that my taste buds have changed as well. Sometimes I can't taste what I'm eating at all. Awe the joys of fibro

Yes all my senses are highly sensitive specially when my pain is high. That makes me more irritable and frustrated. I always have earplugs and a small bottle of essential oil in my purse fir the just in case.
