    loud TV volume

    The scanning beep sound when you are at the grocery stores--particullary discount stores like Grocery Outlet.


    In stores and restarunts the music should just be background music--not loud and blaring.

    in door ceiling fans--they make me feel like I'm going to get stucked up into them.

    When I'm falling asleep, if I hear a sudden sound, it startles me and give me heart palpitations.

    Hate restaurant music, esp. the stuff for the younguns...I think eating experiences should be slow and pleasant, not "excited" and loud. I am always asking for music to be turned down while I'm there.

    Also hate when busboys clear tables next to me and throw dishes into containers and they make so much clattering!

    When one of my dogs barks unexpectedly; its real shrill and startles me, also.

    Neurological part of CFIDS, I guess.

    I never realized sounds bother other fibro/CF people too! I hate the vacume cleaner at work. They vacume every Friday and it makes me nervous. Also, the dog barking drives me nuts. Any loud sound really. And we always use white noise while sleeping.

    where the shops are competing for your attention. That coupled with the bright lights will set me off every time.

    The one sound that drives me bonkers is cars with the bass so loud you can hears them coming blocks away.

    It seems to vibrate through my whole body and gets on my last nerve quickly.

    I have always been very agitated by sounds.

    When I was a little girl I would flush the toilet and run because of the noise.

    Blenders, Vaccuum cleaners, any beeping.

    The sounds of another person eating or slurping.

    Barking dogs, screaming chilren (I have THREE), loud cars (GRRR).

    Quiet clicks like clocks, or motion detectors (wierd?).

    Loud crowded restaurants, loud music, tv.

    Sudden noises - like hubby sneezing. It hits a very bad button in me.

    I think it just goes along with the whole central nervous system breakdown.

    Dog barking drives me crazy too. The sound of pots and pans rattling drives me nuts too.

    beadlady:
    For me the sounds that bother me the most are bad music and the sound of passing cars on my block at night.
    I sleep with styrofoam earplugs each night and hear nothing.
    It is such a nice way to doze off....

    Snoring drives me crazy. It's hard enough to lay there when you don't sleep and then to have to listen to snoring. My fiance has severe allergies and he is constantly snorting and sneezing and that sound just makes me nervous and agitated. Dogs barking or play fighting drives me nuts.

    I've raised 2 boys, have nieces & nephews, LOVE babies, but screaming kids drive me nuts. Please don't take that wrong.

    Mainly LOTS of sounds make me want to cringe and jump out of my skin - too much to name right now. Oh, except car alarms that go off during the night and DON'T stop. Oooh! Get's me going just thinking about all the noises!

    Okay. Deep breath. Silence. Peace. Calm. I'm good now.

    Live, Laugh, Love,

    The sound of our computers humming is DRIVING ME NUTS!!! But both my husband and I work on them anyway, so I just pace myself, and when I can't cope anymore with the humming WE HAVE TO TURN THEM OFF RIGHT AWAY! This most likely drives my hubby insane, but he deals with it.

    I also hate hearing that background "thumping" sound that some rude idiots have when they FORCE others to hear what they have on their car stereo.

    Last...my kids arguing as that gets my anxiety going REALLY bad.

    Someone dropped a weight at the gym yesterday...omg..I jumped to the roof. However, some music drives me nuts...I like soothing calm music now.

    I tell my dh that when he whistles he might as well be driving a spike into my ear because that is what it feels like. Unfortunately, he's always been a whistler. I am slowly breaking him of the habit - at least around me.

    I also hate loud music, lots of people talking at once. Basically all the stuff everyone has already mentioned.

    I didn't realize other people were bothered by noise.I cant cope at all with loud sounds.I work in a restaurant and I started crying the other night because I was so stessed because everyone was so loud and I was training people it was awfull. I have been there for 8 years and am the trainer of all new people but lately I wonder what this is doing to my health. Ruthie

    When I was well, sounds never bothered me. Now, all types of loud sounds bother me.

    One that bothers me now sometimes, is when I am driving to have the window down. It's like it interferes with my concentration to drive.
    Malls, busy stores, etc.
    Yelling, talking too loud
    Bad phone connections.
    My new neighbor's noisy music downstairs.
    My new neighbor's slamming doors, etc.
    The List could go on and on for me.
    Maybe I should get some earplugs now. lol

    This might be hard to explain because maybe I am the only one who notices: I hate, HATE when I am watching TV and they have background music and little sound effects going on. They do it on the news, but a LOT on commercials. It is very startling to me and the way they make it come out of the TV speakers it sounds like it is not on TV, but here in the house. I am home alone during the day so I have gotten up and looked around before. Very annoying and makes my heart skip a beat. If they only knew the distress it causes and it is not necessary.

    Also:

    ---Loud TV
    ---Screaming kids/kids acting up
    ---When my husband sneezes (he sneezes SO loud)
    ---People with thumping stereos driving by.
    ---Loud talkers in restaurants, public places
    ---People at the gym banging and clanging weights
    ---We live in an apartment and it is annoying when people talk outside in the parking lot at night or outside our door!!! Do they think they are the only ones who live here?
    ---Honking horns
    ---Car alarms

    Loud TV or Music, especially bass feels like it is going through my body.

    Anything that makes vibrating sound, like the garbage truck or a large vehicle driving down the road, again feels like it is going right through my body.

    Anyone's constant sniffles/coughs.

    Fan Whirring if anything more than low speed.

    People talking loud.

    Phone ringing, doorbell ringing.

    Anything dropping or clanging.

    Pretty much all noise....sigh.

    I am male and 35 and have had FM since i fell ill in 1997 lost 41lbs in 3months while eating 3-4times a day and sleeping 18hrs a day, yes your right the doctors knew nothing all 3 specialists! and I was wrote off with the only thing they could nail, IBS. In 2001 my wife helped me diagnose this illness and I have been helped with drugs to maintain a semi-normal life.

    SOUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate anything that is on the high side of the scale. So clangging dishes, a loud whistle, vacuum etc etc. Now I wont say that I dont like smacking I hate it but it doesnt make my nerves "ring" like other sounds do. Smacking irritates me due to lack of manners :) I can say that there are sounds/noises that "hit" or "ring" my nerves and those are painful as opposed to irritating.

    I hope this helps and look forward to speaking on the boars more. Check out the drug Lyrica/Pregabalin, I am starting testing this Thursday for Fybro and will post how it goes somewhere on this board.
