Woke up this morning with it and isn't better this evening.
I'm wearing earplugs since every little noise makes me jumpy and irritable.
Maybe the Mepron??

Hi WW: I have the same problem and I am taking NO meds so I would say it is a Lyme symptom. Things are often too loud for me and there are days when a noise, such as the phone ringing will make me jump! Crazy huh? D

I have hyper-sensitivity of all of my senses.... hearing, light sensitivity... I can smell things. This was worse during the first 2 years, but still pops up on occasion.

Yes yes yes yes yes!!! This is a known Lyme symptom. Drives me nuts having a pump running next to me 24/7 with the TPN because of noise sensitivity. All my senses are hyper-acute as well...I seem to be the only one who can smell stuff that just about knocks me out and everyone else around me is scratching their heads because they can't smell anything.
When applied to hearing, super sensitivity is called Hyperacusis. There is a support group for it: http://www.hyperacusis.net/hyperacusis/home/default.asp

Hope this helps - take care,

Razzle: Is it happening because of damage to the brain, is that the cause of all the super-sensitive senses?? thanks D

I suspect neurotoxins released by the Lyme are more likely to blame...but who knows, and perhaps the neurotoxins can cause brain damage if they aren't detoxed...I really don't know.  I know Lyme puts out a lot of ammonia, which is a known neurotoxin (I can smell the ammonia in my sweat, so I know I have too much ammonia, and it gets worse when I try to do anything to combat the Lyme unless I'm taking Milk Thistle).  My hearing seems to fluctuate between "normal" and hyper-acute, or is only hyper-acute for certain types of sounds.  So strange...

Take care,
