You may also have a condition called "hyperacusis". People with hyperacusis are sensitive to specific sounds. There is treatment for it, but it is expensive. My mom had to take out a loan against our home. Insurance of any kind doesn't cover. For info on hyperacusis and tinnitus, visit: The more info you provide, the more help people can be. Feel free to check out my blog and you tube page as well. My ASD specifically centers on SPD which specifically centers on sound sensitivity.
