What baffled me is that, while we were eating pizza and waiting for the concert to begin, I noticed a high school girl across from me at the adjacent table bouncing her foot. She bounced it non-stop for almost a half hour before the concert began **BUT** as soon as the concert started, her foot was completely still! She didn't even bounce it to the rhythm of the music. WEIRD!!! I took videos of both scenarios below but if you have misophonia, please don't play the first one. I don't want to stress out anyone. I just found it strange how she stopped bouncing her foot after the music started. It seemed so backwards to me. (Not sure what made me videotape her bouncing foot in the first place but, given the second video, I'm glad I did.) I'm only posting the videos for non-sufferers to see one of the simply innocuous movements that can annoy sufferers. Don't feel obligated to watch either video.

On another note... I should also mention that the author of "Sound Rage," Judith Krauthamer, just posted information about a twenty-page statistical analysis report derived from an online survey of over 470 misophonia sufferers. (A summary of the report is at the bottom of the home page.) The demographic findings address types and prevalence of triggers, reactions, gender, age, and even responses to triggers, as well as other datasets. For more information, and to request a PDF of the Descriptive Statistics report, go to the Contact page on the "Sound Rage" website.
