Phobias/irritation with noises

Question
Hello,

I'm noticing more recently that noises (such as chewing ice, eating "loud" foods with mouth open, smacking lips) INFURIATES ME.  Is there anything that can be done to remedy this?  

Thank you!

Answer
Angie, I answered this question a few weeks ago, so will paste it in here for your reply...

I have had a few of these questions about this condition. It doesn't seem to be related to PTSD, necessarily, but pinning down the cause/cure is somewhat elusive.

Here are some sites with suggestions:

I haven't had direct experience trying out the EFT process with it, but it can't hurt and there are no drugs to deal with either.

As you can see, going through these sites, you are not alone in your discomfort.
