A friend of mine back in Maryland who also suffers from misophonia told me about an article in the Washington Post back in December. She was very upset at the article because one of the audiologists interviewed stated that in his opinion, misophonia is a conditioned response. Unfortunately, when my friend wrote a letter to the Washington Post, it was ignored. Although I am sharing a link to the article below, I also disagree with the premise of the article - especially since the doctor goes on to talk about how "... This impulse has to do with how the brain processes sound."
So many articles like that one focus on the sound aspect of misophonia yet ignore the fact that many misophonia sufferers, like myself, are also triggered by certain visual and tactile sensations as well. I think this is due to the fact that audiologists were the first medical practitioners to acknowledge misophonia as a real condition.
Despite the name "misophonia," I believe the condition extends well beyond the auditory system. Hopefully when the fMRI misophonia study in which I participated last year at a neurology hospital in London is published, medical practitioners beyond audiologists will be willing to invest more research and attention to the misophonia condition as a whole, not just the aural component of it.
