Phonophobia


Phonophobia, literally meaning fear of sound, is a
widely used term in neurology, particularly in association
with migraine. Woodhouse and Drummond
reported that at least 50% of migraine attacks are
accompanied by increased sensitivity to sound, and
uncomfortable loudness levels are reduced during
attacks. From an audiological point of view, however,
phonophobia implies reaction to certain sounds that
have specific emotional associations for that person.
