If one of your pet peeves is that annoying sound of people chewing their food, now you have a legit reason to feel disgusted. Before you start rejoicing, this might mean there's something wrong with your brain. 

Researchers at Newcastle University discovered that people who finds the sound of chewing, pen clicking, or other normal sounds that drives them crazy when other people can easily phase it out, means that they could have a brain abnormality called misophonia. People with this brain condition have signs of and increased heart rate and sweat whn they hear the trigger sounds because their brain goes into overdrive.

If you think you have misophonia, don't worry because it's not really fatal—but it could be a problem for you in your everyday life. Like Olana Tansley-Hancock from England, she couldn't stand the sound of chewing that she would start to find family meals unbearable since she was 8 years old. But now, she was able to cope when she learned that she had misophonia. And what she did was to have a lifestyle change like meditation, reducing caffeine and alcohol intake, and carrying ear plugs wherever she goes just in case her trigger sounds gets to her again.
