I’m an autistic woman with Misophonia. Most of the trigger noises are disgusting and cause tremendous anxiety. I have to get away from them. I can’t cope with gum chewing, horrible eating noises, nose and mucus noises, whistling, rustling etc. I also can’t cope with loud voices, amongst other loud noises. I’m not sure if the aversion to loud noise is Misophonia or autism. I find the classic Misophonia trigger noise Disgusting in the extreme but loud noise is physically painful and frightening. Clapping hurts in my chest where as very piercing whistling is especially painful in my head.
