Loud Sounds, Loud Music and Digestion

For as long as I can remember, I don’t like sounds that are too loud, especially if these are rock and roll music, as well loud conversations. I especially despise it when I have to shout just to hear my voice when I am talking. It strains my voice as well as my head. Needless to say, loud sounds give me a sore throat and a headache.

I am not sure if this is a health issue but I would rather stay in a quiet place. I hate those places, like the mall or a restaurant, that have very bad acoustics. After a while in such places, I would get a headache. Sometimes I would forget that it is already the weekend and then I would decide to go to the supermarket in order to buy some things only to find out that there is a mall show going on. With the Dynasty Percussion and other instruments banging loudly because of the poor acoustics, I would get irritated to the point of being in a bad mood. Then I would get a headache. Then I would regret not checking the calendar before going out. Gee.

I remember that I had an office mate in the past who was really hyper. When she is nervous, she talks a lot, very fast, and very loudly, too. Then she would vent her frustrations during lunch hour. After I am done eating, I get a stomachache from indigestion because it seems that my digestive system is not working properly with conversations are too loud. It seems that when people are talking loudly when I am eating, my ears are doing the chewing and not my mouth. Tsk tsk.

But in contrast, I love soft music being played while I am dining. It is relaxing so it helps me digest better.

How about you? Do loud sounds affect you as much or you’re just fine with them?

    we have the grand piano in our ancestral house but i never learned to play it hehe, my mom is a good pianist and even though she plays it loud with speakers, her pieces are really music to my ears :)

    I don’t know if there’s a medical explanation for that but I guess it differs for each person. When I was younger I always want to listen to loud music. Now, I can’t stand them.
