Hyperacusis and Misophonia: A Systematic Review of Psychometric Measures.

Misophonia is a strong sense of emotional and behavioural reaction to certain sounds created by human beings, such as eating sounds and breathing sounds. Several psychometric devices have been developed to measure symptoms and the consequences of hyperacusis and misophonia, according to the author's knowledge, no study has evaluated and compared the current instruments' psychometric properties. Data processing and analysis A systematic literature search was conducted using five electronic literature databases based on five electronic literature databases. The consistency of the studies and that of the psychometric devices was tested using the consensus-based criteria for the selection of health measurement devices. The Misophonia Questionnaire was one of the fourteen articles in which eight different devices were identified and reviewed, including Hyperacusis Questionnaire, Inventory of Hyperacusis Symptoms, a questionnaire on hypersensitivity to sound, and a questionnaire on hypersensitivity to sound.

Audiological and Other Factors Predicting the Presence of Misophonia Symptoms Among a Clinical Population Seeking Help for Tinnitus and/or Hyperacusis.

This paper analyzes the proportion and other characteristics of patients with signs of misophonia in a population looking for tinnitus and/or hyperacusis at an audiology clinic. Measures included: pure tone audiometry, uncomfortable loudness levels, and reactions to the tinnitus impact questionnaire, the hyperacusis impact questionnaire, and the screening for anxiety and depression in the tinnitus questionnaire. Except that a steeply sloping audiogram decreased the chance of frequent misophonia symptoms, the presence and frequency of reporting misophonia symptoms were not related to audiometric thresholds, not related to audiometric thresholds, except that a common misophonia condition was not related to audiometric thresholds. ULLmin were lower than those with more frequent misophonia symptoms than those with less frequent or no reported signs. With increasing prevalence of misophonia, increasing presence of hyperacusis, and signs of anxiety and depression, the chances of experiencing misophonia symptoms have increased.

Sound Tolerance Conditions (Hyperacusis, Misophonia, Noise Sensitivity, and Phonophobia): Definitions and Clinical Management.

Hyperacusis refers to physical pain or pain when any sound exceeds a certain degree of loudness that would be tolerable for the majority of people. Misophonia refers to intense emotional responses to certain sounds that are not influenced by their apparent loudness. Noise sensitivity refers to an increased response to sounds that may include general discomfort due to a perceived noisy environment, regardless of its loudness. Phonophobia is an emotional reaction related to fear and avoidance of sound due to the "fear" that sound will cause a comorbid condition to get worse, or that the sound itself will cause discomfort or pain. When doing an evaluation for reduced sound tolerance, it is vital to identify any terms used to ensure that the patient and all health care professionals involved in the patient's care are aligned with the treatment plan's objectives.

Exploring the middle ear function in patients with a cluster of symptoms including tinnitus, hyperacusis, ear fullness and/or pain.

Multiple ear muscle abnormalities have been identified as contributing to the emergence of ear-related conditions such as tinnitus, hyperacusis, ear fullness, dizziness, and/or otalgia. This group of signs has been described as the Tonic Tensor Tympani Syndrome due to the alleged involvement of the tensor tympani muscle. However, MEM dysfunction and the signs' have not been established, and TTTS' specifics are also elusive. Any investigation into the middle ear function of 11 patients with TTTS symptoms has been carried out has been done using either admittance measurement and/or measurement of air pressure in the sealed external auditory canal. Although the former technique determined middle ear stiffness, the latter gives an estimate of the tympanic membrane displacement. On the other hand, acute contraction of the TTM in any patient could not be identified.

The electrophysiological markers of hyperacusis: a scoping review.

Objective Hyperacusis has been portrayed as a reduced tolerance to sounds that would be considered normal by the majority of the population. The aim of this report is to record the findings to date on auditory evoked potentials to measure hyperacusis. Results The investigation found four aetiologies to describe the hyperacusic population in AEP studies; developmental disorders, neurological disorders, radiation poisoning, and idiopathic aetiology are all examples; and idiopathic aetiology. However, before biomarkers specific to hyperacusis can be identified, biomarkers specific to hyperacusis can be identified, the differences in terms used to describe hyperacusis, definitions, and populations must be clarified.
