I suffer anxiety caused by sharp sudden noises. My anxiety is also caused by bassy sounds and banging doors. I get very agitated and nervous when these sounds occur especially from neighbours. Don't know what to do! Anyone have similar symptoms?

  I get alot of the samethings from noises, it feels like a sharp pain in my head and ears and beings up my anxiety but not to bad but like I have said before there are so miny things that can trigger a p/a or up your anxiety level it's unbeliveable just try to remember that these noises aren't going to hurt you and have you talked to your doctor about this he may put you on some meds to help you out with your anxiety.

Hi noises and welcome to HW.  I get really agitated by loud or sudden noises as well and the more anxious I am the worse it is.  My next door neighbours always slam their front door and sometimes I feel like I'm going to jump out of my skin.  I find that doing some relaxation exercises in the morning helps calm me, or I put up the televison loud so it blocks out other sudden noises!!

Hi everyone, thanks for answering! And thanks for the help. As you know it's not easy to deal with such noisy situations. Yesterday I even got irritated by someone swithing a switch and even when my wife coughed. I felt this pain in my ears and got a reaction in my chest. This happens mostly when I try to relax especially at night. Well Thanks again and hope to hear from you. Happy New Year nono

anxiety sufferers are often stimulous bound, that is overstimulated by sound, strong light, sudden movement, etc

earplugs can help, along with sunglasses
