Neurological and Sensory Sensitivity

Do you have light sensitivity (photophobia) or sound sensitivity (hyperacusis)? Do you experience sensory overload, seizures, or disturbances of taste/smell/perception? This is the place to discuss symptoms related to the brain (neurological symptoms) — except for brain fog. (Please discuss symptoms related to thinking, reasoning, or brain fog in the "Cognition, Brain fog, and Emotion" forum.)
