Reminder : Before we get started, I just want to say that I am a patient, not a doctor. What I am sharing comes largely from what my doctors taught me. I am sharing to hopefully help you be informed enough to support friends with this syndrome or possibly acquire informed questions for your doctor. Please talk with your doctor or visit the Mayo Clinic website for official information, diagnosis, and treatment.
This amplified sensation can affect not just the sense of feeling but also your sense of hearing, smelling, and taste. For myself, I have become less tolerant to noise, such as a roomful of children, or even a vacuüm cleaner running. And lately, I’ve even noticed that spicy food is spicier than usual.
The medical field is finally getting a good understanding.
In fact, it is finally listed as a syndrome with a diagnosis code in October 2015!
The cause is still unknown.
So how do the doctors diagnose this type of problem? Click for more.
