Do I Have SPD!??? HELP!!!!

by Jordyn Cunningham
(Monument, Colorado, USA)


A few years ago my 'sensory problems' really began to get bad. Slowly they have gotten worse and worse. Now it is to the point where I can't stand the textures of pretty much all my clothes.




I have noticed that dry air, cold, water, and sweat make it worse. I am also sensitive to certain sounds. The volume doesn't seem to have an affect, but for example, my mom just got a brand new jacket and when it rubs on stuff, I cringe.

If I am making like gravy or something in a metal pot, I have to use a wooden spoon because I can't stand the noise of two metal objects scraping on each other. The main problem for me is textures, though.

The past week or so it has really been acting up. To the point where sometimes I just want to lock myself in my room. Having the constant annoyances and irritations around me are really starting to affect my mood, I'm increasingly irritable and get mad more easily.

I can't tell if I have SPD because a lot of the symptoms I do not posses. But some of them I have really really bad.

What do you think!!!!!!!!?????? PLEASE HELP!!!!

My understanding is that SPD is something you are born with not something you can develop later in life. My advice is to discuss your symptoms with your doctor.

I only started suffering from this problem when I was 26, so around 1 year ago. My only sense that is involved is touch. My doctor believes it's a somatic disorder but anxiety treatments haven't been working so far. However I did not have this as a child and only developed it during my adulthood. I have been told it doesn't seem like SPD! It's making my life impossible.

Hi. I also have this same problem. I have had this since I was 4 years old and I am 35 now. It can make life very difficult.
