Being annoyed by noisy chewing is a genuine psychiatric disorder

Have you been in the situation where your sat in a restaurant where you become overwhelmed and enraged by the sound of the man across the room loudly slurping his soup, or someone sitting next to you crunching crisps?

It appears you could suffer from misophonia, a genuine psychiatric disorder which indicates you hate sounds like eating, chewing, drinking, repeated pen-clicking and loud breathing.

Seriously, you must admit slurping the sound of people slurping their coffee first thing in the morning is irritating enough as it is, so imagine how difficult life feels for a person who suffers from this condition.

Back in 2001 Misophonia was named as a condition. , Scans of people suffering from it show changes in brain activity when a trigger sound was heard according to a report in Current Biology

Those who suffer from the condition have an abnormality in their emotional control mechanism this forces their brains to go into overdrive when they hear triggers, causing their heart rate to increase as well as making them sweat.

So next time you’re devouring something to eat in public or even at home, be more considerate for those around you.
