Stress Make Women More Sensitive to Noise
Women who experience emotional exhaustion or stress is much more sensitive to noise. Not only that, the stress on the Eve was also associated with hearing problems.
Thus the results of recent studies conducted by researchers in Sweden.
“When you are very sensitive to noise, including sound normal, such as toys, cutlery or even the sound of a car engine, it can be very sharp in your ear,” said Dan Hasson, a professor in the department of physiology and pharmacology at the Karolinska Institute, as reported by Health.com .
In conducting the study, the researchers enrolled 208 women and 140 men aged 23-71 years on average. The participants had low levels of emotional exhaustion, moderate or related high, ranging from physical stress, mental and social.
The study shows women with levels of emotional exhaustion or high stress is much more sensitive to noise. Some of them even feel normal conversation even sound too loud in their ears.
Conversely, participants with low levels of emotional exhaustion are less sensitive to noise when they are experiencing stress. The researchers say that this is a normal reaction to stress.
“Serious form of hypersensitivity voice can force people to isolate themselves and avoid situations and environments that could potentially make them sad,” said Hasson, who is also affiliated with the University of Stockholm. The research was published online in the journal PLoS ONE.
