Noise sensitivity in adults with TS
I'm a 51-yr-old female with Tourette's Syndrome. All my life I have had extremely acute hearing & seem to be extremely bothered by loud, repetitive, and especially random noises. Whenever I have complained about, say, a neighbor's stereo being too loud or being bothered by the gunshots from nearby hunters (I live in a rural area. I despise both hunting AND hunters, but that's another story) people, in a lot of ways, just don't seem to understand.
I certainly have never gotten any support or any kind of help concerning my problem. People (even members of my own family) treat me like some kind of freak. Please tell me, is SPD a symptom of TS, or maybe ADD? (I have that too). Any help that anyone could give would be appreciated.
