    @Misfit Toy I'm so glad you are on a mini vacation and you deserve it! We will be staying in a hotel shortly for my trip to the specialist and I am hoping it will be quiet with no smells or noise. We always request no smoking/no pets room but sometimes you don't get what you asked for. My main issue was that the hotel had a fridge since I have two supplements that need to be refrigerated. It is so different traveling as a PWC than in my earlier life :aghhh::mad::bang-head:

    For me the thing that helps the most is migraine medication (anti-seizure type). I do have migraine.

    However, getting enough rest, avoiding over-stimulation (e.g. limiting TV, moving away from the dryer or dishwasher when possible), and staying well hydrated also help.

    When I am for a day or two on vacations, that's the first thing I am doing, plugging out the mini-fridge, the air-conditionning that are in the room... Because of noise sensitivity, I won't rent a room in a building, separate bungalow is the only solution...

    FYI - Low thyroid hormone levels / low thyroid function can cause noise hypersensitivity. I used to be driven crazy by slight hums, buzzing sounds, TV noise through my wall, footsteps.

    After supplementing with thyroid glandular.. and then eventually correcting my insulin resistance that caused low thyroid hormone levels... I became much less sensitive to "minor" noise that isn't blatantly distracting.

    @Sherpa I wrote this post a while ago and in general noise sensitivity is not as bad for me now. I also got noise canceling headphones which are really helpful.

    The worst for me is when there are multiple competing noises/sounds and my brain cannot separate them or filter them out.
