Besides being acutely sensitive to sounds I have also become very sensitive so touch and smell. Anyone else?

Touch yes, smell no. I'm always getting sensations and itchy feelings on my skin, and at times I cringe when my wife touches me, like if she brushes against me when she walks by or even the feeling of a kiss on my lips. The itchy feeling of my nose hairs against the inside of my nostrils drives me crazy at times. And I even feel my heart beating in my skin sometimes.
