    Many misophones also have synaesthesia (synaesthesia is a condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another, as when the hearing of a sound produces the visualization of a colour)

    Do you have both misophonia and synaesthesia. If so do you think there’s a direct link between the two and how does this manifest for you? It’d be great to hear your thoughts.

    I have synaesthesia, misophonia and misokinesia – they say things come in 3s! I guess if it is all to do with senses then perhaps they are linked? Maybe the senses are hypersensitive? I see all words as colours, but the sounds I hate don’t have angry colours, so I’m not sure if they are directly linked, but perhaps you’re more susceptible to one if you have the other, if that makes sense?

    I suspected the same thing. I wouldn’t say I have Synaesthesia exactly, but I do say that to me lightning smells purple, it’s the only color association to a sense that I’ve noticed.
