So I've always been this way, add to it someone playing their music or TV too loudly and I am near to choking the life out of them.

 

I am adding it here because since recovering from WD syndrome, my reaction is not so 'going for the throat' with noise but cutting me off in traffic makes me want to go into ramming mode.

 

Some stuff more easily angers me, some stuff not. But to find this article was great: I always thought it was me and I 'learned' it from my dad.

 

Um, the chewing thing will have me leaving you at the restaurant alone to save my sanity, however (and likely saving you from a fork in your eye).

What happened and how I arrived here: http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/4243-cymbaltawithdrawal5600-introduction/#entry50878

 

July 2016 I have decided to leave my story here at SA unfinished. I have left my contact information in my profile for anyone who wishes to talk to me. I have a posting history spanning nearly 4 years and 3000+ posts all over the site.

 

Thank you to all who participated in my recovery. I'll miss talking to you but know that I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines, suffering and rejoicing with you in spirit, as you go on in your journey.

Lol.  Yup the chewing thing.  I know what you mean and wanted to mark this for further reading of the link you gave.  My supersensory hearing sometimes still drives me batty.........mostly because I figure everyone else can hear my cell phone conversations and such........ when I am in my garage or outside just like I hear all their personal stuff too(neighbors talking or having their own cell phone conversations).  I just hear so acutely now!  Is that you or me grinding teeth???!!!!

2022 May- continuing with limited activity on site, just something I need to do right now

Started with psycho meds/psychiatric care circa 1988.  In retrospect, and on contemplation, situational overwhelm.

Rounding up to 30 years of medications(30 medication trials, poly-pharmacy maximum was 3 at one time).

5/28/2015-off Adderal salts 2.5mg. (I had been on that since hospital 10/2014)

12/2015---just holding, holding, holding, with trileptal/oxcarb at 75 mg. 1/2 tab at hs.  My last psycho med ever!  Tapered @ 10% every 4 weeks, sometimes 2 weeks to

2016 Dec 16 medication free!!

Longer signature post here, with current supplements.

Herb and alcohol free since 5/15/2016.  And.....I quit smoking 11/2021.  Can you say Hallelujah?(took me long enough)💜

I definitely have this for a very specific mouth noise particularly if the offender is behind me.  The sound creeps me out, makes my skin crawl.

 

I used to listen to talk-y radio, e.g. CBC and NPR, all the time. Now I can tolerate no more than 5 minutes. The good thing is that I've discovered some lovely classical CDs that I think I could listen to all day.

OMG, how am I going to break this to hubby?  (here, I just thought he was a barbarian, raised in a barn, with the table manners of a canine).

 

I keep telling myself he smacks his lips like that to induce olfactory sensations so that his food tastes better to him (because I also think he has deficient taste buds) and that he scrapes his spoon on the bowl like that to get every last bit up (geezzzzzz, just lick the bowl, it would be quieter!)

 

Poor hubby!  

 

From the article:

 

 

Those are my exact thoughts. What is wrong with you? Who raised you? Why do you not have manners? How did you get this far in life without realizing how disgusting you are? It’s really bad. I feel pure rage. I don’t know how else to describe it. I feel indignant, like, how does this person think this is okay? Who raised them? Why did no one tell them that these noises could disturb people around them? Are they going to be doing this forever? Who could possibly date them? Does their significant other chew like this, too? Does their entire family chew like this? Imagine being at dinner with their family, they probably have the worst manners. They are definitely the type of family where conversation ceases as soon as they get their plates, which would make the sound even worse. Maybe I should give them a dirty look so they’ll get the point. Okay, giving them a dirty look now — okay, we made eye contact and they’re still doing it. Was my face not bitchy enough? Should I have raised an eyebrow? Can I move seats? Can I get off this train?

I had this in wd only.  It was really bad it has eased now.  I still cannot tolerate the radio playing in the car.. it drives me nuts.  

 

I knew this child once who had taken an over dose of a drug his dad had been given post ear surgery for dizziness I think ti was likely the same thing I was given for a concussion dizziness... something like this dimenhydrinate but not exactly... 

 

When he had recovered he could not tolerate sound either from what I knew of him he did not have this before he took the bottle of pills as a 2 year old. that I find a bit interesting...

 

according to this person it is a relatively new thing...

WARNING THIS WILL BE LONG
Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey.

From:  https://www.statnews.com/2016/06/17/misophonia-noise-rage/

 

Gould was reduced to tears. He realized, at last, that he was not weird, not crazy, and not alone. Now, he’s aiming to get the message out to the world with a documentary, “Quiet Please…,” which shows just how excruciating and lonely it can be to live with the condition. The film premieres Saturday in New York City.

Misophonia, sometimes called selective sound sensitivity syndrome or 4S, is a baffling and bizarre disorder. Patients feel an instantaneous, overwhelming, and uncontrollable rage — often accompanied by physiological responses such as sweaty palms or a racing heart — to certain sounds.

 

 

and:

https://www.statnews.com/2016/02/18/noise-induced-ear-pain/

 

 

Researchers have known for years about a condition called hyperacusis, where ordinary sounds seem uncomfortably loud. But they’re just starting to understand that some patients experience a more severe form, where noise is not just heard — but is actually felt, as physical pain.

 

Using new lab tools and techniques, pioneering scientists have identified what appear to be pain fibers in the inner ear, or cochlea. They are coining new terms, including “noxacusis” and “auditory nociception,” for this newly recognized sensation of noise-induced ear pain.

and

 

 

Patients’ descriptions of the pain are remarkably similar: A sound is usually perceived as the sharp jab of a knife or skewer. The sensation persists as a searing, burning ear pain, often combined with the pressure known as aural fullness and the ringing known as tinnitus.
What even most auditory scientists don’t understand about hyperacusis with pain is that the pain lingers long after the sound is gone, much as the pain from a flesh wound would,” said M. Charles Liberman, a professor of otology at Harvard Medical School and director of a hearing research lab at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary.

HI, I was just wondering if anyone here developed Misophonia (rage and anxiety to certain everyday sounds) after antidepressant use or as a sequel even if you are not taking it anymore. I never had any problem with sounds until after I left medications. Now I can't stand mouth awful sounds people do when eating or kissing. I really hate them! I can't describe what I feel when I hear them! Maybe antidepressants rewire the brain to a point where they mix fight-or-flight reactions with auditory cortex?

I knew it! May this be reversible because I can't stand yawnings or people eating like pigs, before the medication I didn't care at all but suddenly most sounds cause me a total rage. Besides I hear everything 10 times louder even if it doesn't bother me as causing me rage but it hurts like you're exposing to really loud noises when everybody feels no hurt at the same levels. It is a shame they cause us serious consequences in the name of Medicine. And nobody gets punished for that.

I also have a very strong memory recall with smells going on also , nothing too unpleasant but very interesting what's going on with that .

It's tragic how things affect us in the name of medicine but I recommend not ruminating too much on this ,it really doesn't help us ,we can support change going on in the world around us rather than directing hatred that just  eats us up but I do agree it's hard to be calm sometimes

another name lol

 

we have so many names now for wd symptoms... like pulling the wings off a live fly... I can't suck anymore names into my brain enough already hypersensitivity is good enough for me and covers a wide range of wd symptoms... 

 

I am sure these things existed in some small segment of the population and now that they are becoming wide spread due to wd from ssri and other psych drugs... it gives us something to do to look up new words to align with our symptoms and read how why we have it ...never as a result of the drugs we took if you believe wiki and google except brain zaps that seems to be an original wd symptoms not aligned with other things.... a pure wd symptom. ps it is zaps were first talked about on the web as part of illegal drug withdrawal syndrome... Ecstasy was the drug if I recall correctly.. now it is ssri and ecstasy related

Hi, i wonder if there is a link between taking or during withdrawal phase or after withdrawal antidepressant or benzodiazapine and misophonia?

(i am french)

1998 prazépam, citalopram /1999 paroxetine prazepam /2000 paroxétine /2001venafaxine, alprazolam, clomipramine * 2002 (dont remember)/2003 clomipramine, alprazolam /2004 clomipramine /2005 alprazolam /2006(dont remember) * 2007citalopram, alprazolam, prazépam, venlafaxine /2008(dont remember) /2009 venlafaxine /2010 venlafaxine *All precedent withdrawal were very fast. I tried many times to stop but didn't know what happened. *2011 mirtazapine (22,5 mg) , norset , risperdal (cold turkey for risperdal and norset, analysis by doctor say that my body does not support and i was in danger) /2012 mirtazapine / 2013 mirtazapine  *october 2014 mirtazapine (15mg) - putting down slowly.   *when i was good for one month i  down 1ml. (1ml of 100ml of water in which there was 1 pill of 15mg of mirtazapine. At the end i remove 1ml of 50ml of water but with 0,5 pill it does the same concentration.) (i down more like "how i feel, because at the beginning i had a calendar tapping 10% every 15 days and i was really bad, so i decided to see one month and after if i was trust in my body, i remove 10% of the dose at the beginning; and at the end i remove 1ml (when the 10% was lower than 1ml). It was more how i feel. (it is just the last 1 ml that i remove rapidly because i think i was attached mentally and i need to break. and 1ml of 50ml of 15/2mg is just 1ml correspond to 0.15mg. ).  -juillet 2017 stop all. 

nov 2017 tetany and gastritis. I found "euphytose", "spasmine", "phyto-stress" from Govital(the more efficient if crisis because more concentrated)  efficient. If very bad i take valerian extract 1000mg (stop crisis). 

january 2022: I survive. Still having no hunger sensation.

  • Altostrata changed the title to Irritated by noise: Misophonia
  • 1 year later...

Hi, I found this post as I was searching through this site. I have suffered from Misophonia for most of my life.
However, it became more unbearable after my severe withdrawal from SSRI’s in 2012. 
Chewing sounds, among other triggers, will create this uncontrollable rage within me, to the point where I have to remove myself from the offender or I will lose my mind. This has affected my personal relationships as well as work & career aspirations.
I read in the previous posts about the fight-or-flight response, and I agree 100% that the SSRI withdrawal somehow messed with that part of my brain.

My main coping mechanism is to remove myself from the situation & avoid most people in general, as well as carrying earplugs wherever I go just in case.

 Misophonia is yet another monster we have to deal with on top of the SSRI withdrawal. My sympathy goes out to you.

➡️ Fall 2011- Doctor switched me from Paxil XR to Citalopram (Celexa).

• First time experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
➡️  May 2012 - Doctor told me to taper off of Citalopram in 3 weeks, I did it in 6 weeks.
• Horrible withdrawal: Brain zaps, neck pain, crying spells, irritability, sensitivity to sounds & light, migraines, body aches, nerve pain, flu-like symptoms, depersonalization, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, depression, brain fog, and more.
➡️ January 2013 - Reinstated to Prozac.

➡️ Spring 2015 - New Doctor switched me to Wellbutrin. 
➡️ Spring 2016 - switched to Cymbalta. Added Gabapentin.

➡️ Spring 2018 - switched to Pristiq. Added Abilify. 
*** Currently on 25mg Pristiq, 2mg Abilify,       300mg Gabapentin. 

 

(Sorry I’m very foggy with my memory, don’t remember dates or doses very well).

I grew up somewhere really quiet.  The city got louder in the years after moving there, and once wds were underway it become intolerable much of the time.  I got noise cancelling headphones which helped, but moving back out of the city was my solution.  All I can hear right now with the window open is a bunch of bird calls.  Yay

I'm similar and had a milder version of this problem until I other got older or went through withdrawal.

 

I am filled with so much rage when I hear people eating with excessive noise. It makes me feel guilty but I cannot handle the situation. I get it a lot with repetitive noises people make. Whistling/tapping etc

 

I moved away from the city and bought a terrace. I thought with it been an older house the walls would be thicker. I can hear everything my neighbours do and it drives me insane. Doesn't help they are not that considerate with their noise. Going through finally jumping off Paroxetine in this house has been challenging.

 

I really cannot tolerate noise. Like others have said it has affected my relationships. I sometimes suspect my tinnitus is due to the stress of dealing with the noise as it started around the same time. I miss the silence so much and I dream of buying a cabin in the woods.

April 2007 -  Seroxat 20mg

August 2008 - Cold Turkey

August 2009 - Cold Turkey

November 2009 - Reinstatement adverse reaction akathesia/suicidal/anxiety

March 2011 - Start taper

November 2012 - Crash badly at 1.25mg akathesia/suicidal/extreme anxiety

January 2013 - 5mg Seroxat, 300mg  Lyrica

April 2017 - Successfully get off Seroxat with taper followed by 4 month of withdrawal 

January 2018 - Start with constant urinary urge/pain/burning/genital sensations 2 week after anxiety/akathesia ends

January 2019 - Started reducing Lyrica as I suspect it's causing frequent urination, tinnitus, fatigue, brain fog and mental decline.

December 2019 - Off all pysch meds

I'm mostly less bugged by the ASMR style stuff, but thin walls are a version of hell - sooner or later someone unpleasant often shows up.  I made sure to find a place with a bit of space around it and feel very fortunate to be here.  I had a hunch to check the listings one afternoon when I was really tired last year and am super glad I did.  Go find that cabin @Boris :-)

I like bushwalking and touring, you never know what you'll come across.  You don't even need a reason to ramble...extensively :-)
