With me, it's not as much as if the noises seem a whole lot louder, it's like I have a really reduced tolerance to noise. Any loudish noise will grate on my ears and nerves making me feel as if I'm going to jump out of my skin. Even *happy* noises, like my 18 month daughter's little squeals of enjoyment, can give me a flash of irritable feeling. This does happen when I am feeling worse overall(depressed, anxious, stretched nerves). I also, at these times, will have a very increased sensitivity to being in crowds(I know this is not medication related, because I've always had it). Small places(elevators,ect)have never bothered me, but put me in the midst of too many people and I get very stressed(I call it "people claustrophobia"). I feel I can't breath(causing me to hyper-ventilate) and I get so irritable, I literally have to bite my tongue to keep from yelling things like,"move it!" "Get out of my way!"(my husband has learned to recognize this and ignore the irritable(and mean)way that I talk to him). He just scouts the best way out of the situation(with incredible patience).CarolAnn
