Misophonia: When Life's Noises Drive You Mad

"Misophonia is characterized by intense emotion like rage or fear in response to highly specific sounds,
particularly ordinary sounds that other people make. The cause is unknown...

...Misophonia got its name just a few years ago,
and it is not officially listed as a diagnosis in any medical manuals.
Many doctors have never heard of it, and if patients do mention their symptoms,
they are sometimes dismissed or diagnosed with a mood disorder...

...Also, the people with misophonia appeared to have some unusual brain activity when the trigger sounds were played

Now folks, no abusing this knowledge and pretending to have this condition,
just to get musicians to turn down because you don't like their taste in music...
