I'm another one who is very sensitive to light and noise and add temperature. If I'm warm or in a hot shower and someone were to splash 1 single drop of cold water on me every muscle in my body jolts and I'm ready to take them out. The other one is touching anywhere in my neck/shoulder area. I've put a couple of people on the ground for coming up behind me and doing that. Swing first, then see who's down there looking up at you...lol My SIL spaced out on this fact about
8 months ago and came from behind to give a caring pat. His huge hands went over the tops of my shoulders and he felt me instantly go stiff. He quickly jumped back and didn't stop apologizing for about
a week. Just thinking about
it I got goose bumps down my arms!
And those screams you are describing? You and I would both be on the ceiling together on that one. If we were to look at the symptoms that encompass fibro these sensitivities would all on there plus many more. I found this information while searching the internet. It really tells the story. Hope it sheds some light on this topic.
