Pain From Sudden Noises/sounds

Pain From Sudden Noises/sounds

When I am having a bad flareup, I become very sensitive to sudden sounds/noises. Anything from a siren to a small cough, or even someone starting to talk causes a painful shock to all the nerves in my upper body. Mostly my arms, shoulders and neck. Constant “white noise” doesn’t bother me. I feel guilty when this is happening, I because I have to ask my husband not to talk to me or change channels on the TV or I tell him that I have to go in different room bc my flareup is causing sounds to… read more

Yes i am very sensitive to loud noise. Especially when it's unexpected.
My nerves are right on edge and it hurts I believe because it causes my muscles to tighten.
Makes me very annoyed and cranky.

One of the first symptoms I had was an adverse reaction to noise. When I wanted to boil water I would unplug the kettle as soon as it started to make a noise. I would get angry at my husband because he was eating too loud. I got angry at my children when they were playing because I could not stand the noise. It was a reaction similar to that of someone scratching on a chalk board. If I was a cat the fur on my back would be sticking straight up. That was how I reacted to some noises. I have learned to dismiss it now.

I don’t have pain in my ears from sudden loud noises. I get jolts of nerve pain in my arms, hands and head all at once. Like a an electrical zap. Constant noise doesn’t seem to bother me. I am guessing people have different reactions.

I had no idea that was a part of fibro. I just thought my ears were overly sensitive to noise. People who have shrill, loud voices really bother me and I can only take so much of being in the room with them. I have some people in my family with voices like that. Can't stand really loud music, like at a concert. I have to stand way far away from the speakers. It stresses me out and hurts my ears to be around loud noise.

I have hearing loss. I cant hear people speak. What i should say it sounds like mumble jumble to me when they talj. I always have to say what? I think this is part of the fibro fog. It's like I block them out when they r talking. As for noises I hear them very well. I cant stand loud noises it really hurts.. I get so much pain in my ears and head, i have to tell them to tune it down.
