I wear earplugs all the time because of irritating noise. I didn't realize it had a name. Certain sounds cause me physical pain, unfortunately I can hear dog whistles and security alarm systems. For some reason Jazz irritates beyond belief. I try to enjoy it, I love music, but end up with a sore jaw from gritting my teeth.

I agree with you about jazz. Of course it isn't all the same. Some of the older styles, like big band is fun, but more modern styles which look like a bunch of scribbles in my brain set my teeth on edge too! I think you have a very sensitive nervous system and are smart to protect yourself from overstimulation/pain.

I personally can not stand the sound of anyone eating around me!! Scared to eat out at restaurants.
