What is hyperacusis?
Hyperacusis is an increased sensitivity to sounds.
It means that you may feel pain or discomfort when you hear sounds that most people are able to tolerate; for example, the sound of cutlery on plates in a restaurant.
Hyperacusis may come on gradually or suddenly. However, not all people with hyperacusis are affected by the same sounds.
