Sensitivity To Sound (Phonophobia)
Phonophobia is fear or aversion to certain sounds, deafening ones. While conditions like migraines can make loud noises painful, phonophobia usually refers to a psychological aversion. People with phonophobia might feel pressured to avoid situations that expose their triggers. Visit a nearby Carbon Health to talk about how you can manage and treat this condition.
- Noise can trigger anxiety for a variety of reasons. Loud or sudden noises can activate the body's "fight or flight" response, triggering the release of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones prepare the body to respond to a perceived threat, increasing heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate.
