I am triggered mostly by mouth sounds, chewing smacking etc. One of my worst triggers, and about the only one that causes me to flee, is my husband flossing his teeth. Can. Not. Handle. Fortunately he is understanding (mostly) and leaves the room to floss his teeth.

Another really weird trigger is the sound of tissue paper crinkling. This started several years ago and causes a physical reaction. I get a fluttering sound in my ears every time I hear that noise. It can also happen with plastic like sandwich bags or plastic wrap. Really bizarre. Has anyone else had anything like that happen? Sometimes the paper doesn’t even have to crinkle. I can just reach for it and the fluttering starts.
