Sensory Processing Disorder

At the end of this show, someone wrote in to ask about chewing noises annoying her. I wondered if your doctors are aware of a syndrome called Sensory Processing Disorder/Sensory Integration Dysfunction. I won’t go into all of the symptoms here but people who get extremely annoyed/rageful with different noices/smells/food textures/light/fabrics usually have this. If you google this along with “symptom checklist”, you will see them. There is treatment for young children in the form of occupational therapy, and for adults, there is something called neurofeedback/Brainmapping. There are so many people who have this and get misdiagnosed with ADHD and behavioral problems. Most therapists and doctors have never even heard of this and I wish you would do a show on it. I suffered from this for many years and used to be a huge temper tantrum thrower, which interestingly, helped my body detox from the sensory overload. Thank you very much!
