Is A Sensitivity To Loud Noises Related To Ms?

My legs go weak and I almost feel like I will collapse when a car honks its horn, and I just can't tolerate loud environments. I wasn't like this 10 years ago.

Answer

Julie, I have very little tolerance for loud noises, or even just certain quality of noises. There are times which the very sound of the TV feels like an oppressive beast which is bearing down upon me. For me, it the cognitive issues which surface in a loud environment.

No fun - that's for sure. In fact, I wrote something just yesterday which touches on this very issue. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone in this symptom. I simply HATE loud sounds now as they seem to turn my brain into brush.
