    I have had misophonia since I was a child but as I've grown older it seems to have gotten worse. I can't eat around anyone as it drives me off my head, especially my father who I've told repeatedly about the condition, but just ignores it and continues to make the most grotesque noises I have...

    My neighbor is monitoring me

    So this could be purely paranoia or my gut instinct is correct. I think my neighbors might be making noise nuisance sheets about me and they have been doing it for some time. I'm not a noisy person I don't play music and if I do it be through headphones and I never watch TV as I'm mostly on...

    I have bpd, but I'm also now hearing things.

    It started out with wind chime like noises, little bells and whistles, it's now like I'm listening to a just out of tune radio, I hear noises like music and also muffled voices, it's a lot worse when I'm in silence, so getting to sleep is difficult, I'm just wondering if I should goto the Dr's...

    Feeling threatened by noises being made by my brother and dad

    I feel threatened sometimes by this. An example would be closing cabinets or drawers in the kitchen. Or it could be getting a plate out, pushing in a chair, closing bedroom doors, etc. But I only feel this way if my brother or dad make those noises. If my mom does, I don't feel threatened...

    Uncontrollable/harmful actions when I have unpleasant thoughts.

    Not where to place this, so please let me know if I'm in the wrong section. I'll probably post this in more than one section. However, I'll cut straight to the chase. Whenever I think something embarrassing I did or think of something unpleasant, I cannot control my actions. Sometimes I'll make...

    Randomly Hearing a Family Member Yell My Name. Hearing Falling noises. Would this be considered Hearing Voices?

    Randomly Hearing a Family Member Yell My Name. Hearing Falling noises. Would this be considered Hearing Voices? I have never told any Psych about this. I recently started hearing in my head a family member yelling my name, as if in distress. Also I hear falling noises. I would run quickly to...

    Why do I make noises, and find it very difficult to stop?

    Hello, This is my first post, so pardon me if I make mistakes or if I am not thorough enough. The issue: I make odd noises e.g. partial cough, lip noises and other strange noises (Some are VERY hard to explain). I can control these noises, although I find it very difficult to do so most of the...

    Could it really be psychosis

Loud noises scare me, a car door opening out the front of my house makes me look out there and i've become very good at working myself up over virtually anything.Even when i get excited i'm anxious. Going to the shops is very hard...

    Ok, I have been hearing *things* not voices. I don't know if the noises are real, but I find myself trying really hard to listen to it. Then, I get majorly anxious and try to block the noises out by focusing on something else. I saw my G.P and tried to explain the noises but couldn't explain...

    Sounds and sound distortion

    Hey all, I haven't been experiencing a lot of voices lately so much as real sounds being distorted to sound like other things, as well as random noises that no one else can hear. For example, the other day there were a load of crows cawing on my roof, but after a while it turned into men...

Ever since that thought i've been hearing fly buzzing noises when there arn't any flys around and think maybe it did go in my ear. The noises are really loud near...
