I am just wondering if anyone has any problems with being like ultra sensitive to sounds after their brain injury. It appears like everything i can hear is so loud and i cant zone sounds out to concentrate on just what im needing to. I was told it can be common after an abi to lose that filter in the auditory part of the brain and thats why everything is overwhelming and exhausting just trying to concentrate. I have learnt a few techniques like sitting beside a wall etc to use my environment to absorb sounds. Im just wondering if anyone else has similar problems with busier environments as it is making anything social becoming overwhelming very quickly and i cant sustain it for any length of time before it gets too much and im almost in tears and just drained. Any tips or advice on this would be gladly taken!
