Startle response to sounds — anyone else have painful after-effects?
I have a severe case of sound sensitive myoclonus (exaggerated startle), similar to what others have reported. My startles often trigger painful head spasms, fatigue & disorientation for hours, sometimes days! Been trying all sorts of meds to act as “surge suppressors” to loud sound inputs, nothing has helped so far. I’d be interested in hearing from others who’ve had this and what’s helped manage episodes.
