    Are you sensitive?

    Are you more sensitive to sounds, loud or abrupt noises now more than before your injury? Automobiles with loud base music can go right through my body causing signification discomfort.

    An unexpected door slam or any noise not expected can have an extraordinary impact on me. I live in a wide open house with tile floors and no furniture I hear every click, creek or rattle throughout the entire house. Just now the thermostat clicked on and it sent a shock through my body, though when the unit actually came on it did not bother me.

    My hearing is not "bionic" but I am very sensitive to sounds, does anybody else have this reaction or sensation to noises?

      I also experience the feelings you described. I cant controll my body if someone slams a door or miss something heavy on the floor. I quite simply jump. At the beginning i thought it should by some psychic reaction to the accident i had, but now i tend to think it´s an sci-related reaction.

        you know when you're sitting at a red light and a car pulls up next to you and you can feel the music?
        boom boom boom
        that's him.

          Yup, me too. Hate it. 'cause any sudden loud noise either makes me jump, or I feel shocks going down my legs.

            Yup, the dog barking, sharp noises, etc. send shocks/tingling down my legs/feet. Ahh the marvels of a screwed up nervous system. [img]/forum/images/smilies/mad.gif[/img]

              Interesting that others also experience this, same for me.

              I also find I'm more easily startled when someone quietely interrupts me like while reading a book, concentrating on something.

              I wonder if all this is sci-related?

                I am very sensitive to noise too. Since I don't remember before SCI, I never related it to the SCI.

                But I asked another friend today in the phone, she is a th12, complete, 27 years post and she said the same.

                  I was bothered by loud noises for many years after my accident - and still am, to some degree. But I've always associated certain loud noises with my accident (the sound of the car hitting concrete). Loud noises used to really freak me out.

                        This is the first time hearing about noise causing discomfort. Joe plays his stereo so loud our grownup children have to tell him to turn it down. When we have parties we all put cotton in our ears because Joe has "The Doors" shaking the windows!!!

                          Dan's pretty relaxed (on the outside). No jumping or anything, and like you Globe, he hears Everything!

                            Hmmmmm...sounds like it does have something to do with SCI, but I'm wondering why loud noises don't affect me at all. Maybe its because I have 4 yr old twin boys-I think quietness would alarm me even more!!! LOL

                              My legs have definitely taken over the "startled response". My top half doesn't seem to get affected anymore. Definitely sci related.
