Why can't you stand eating noises? Here is the disease that causes anger

Why can't you stand eating noises? Here is the disease that causes anger

You know that moment when someone chews next to you? For some people, this noise is easy to ignore. However, many people are irritated and annoyed by these sounds.

Such a reaction is known as misophonia and is about an exaggerated emotional response to a particular noise or sound. In addition to chewing, there are people who are irritated by noisy breathing, but also scratching various surfaces with nails.

A British study has managed to find out what happens in the human brain when you hear such annoying noises.

What do the experts say?

In the study, X-rays were used to analyze the brains of 20 people who suffer from misophonia and 22 others who do not react to the aforementioned sounds and noises.

During the experiment, all participants were forced to listen to different sounds such as rain, howling, breathing, chewing or even scratching.

Then, the graphs showed that in the case of people affected by misophonia, the part of the brain that connects the senses with emotions was more active than in other people. One of the researchers of this experiment told the BBC that the brains of people suffering from misophonia are inflamed by anger and exhausted by these noises and sounds.

"The emotion that prevails when one hears someone chewing is not simply disgust. It's pure rage. It looks like a normal reaction, but then it gets bigger," said Dr. expert Sukbinder Kumar in an interview for the BBC.

Are there treatments for misophonia?

Experts say that there are no real treatments for this disorder. However, people can find ways to protect themselves from an emotional overreaction by wearing headphones.

These emotional reactions to chewing and more tend to be exacerbated by alcohol and caffeine consumption. Experts hope to conduct further studies to better understand this underdiagnosed disorder and provide specific treatments for it.
