PURPOSE Hyperacusis can be extremely debilitating, and at present, there is no cure. In this detailed review of the field, we consolidate present knowledge in the hope of facilitating future research. METHOD We review and reference the literature on hyperacusis and related areas. This is the 2nd of a 2-part review. RESULTS Hyperacusis encompasses a wide range of reactions to sounds, which can be grouped into the categories of excessive loudness, annoyance, fear, and pain. Reasonable…

Counseling for Patients with Hyperacusis
TLDR
It is found that meditation and progressive relaxation techniques, and sound therapy are most effective for managing hyperacusis symptoms.
Establishing a Group Educational Session for Hyperacusis Patients.
TLDR
The approach to establishing a hyperacusis group educational session is outlined that includes specific aspects of getting to know each patient to best meet their needs, understanding the problems associated withhyperacusis, and introducing treatment options.
Characteristics of Hyperacusis in the General Population
TLDR
High age, female sex, and high education were associated with hyperacusis, and that trying to avoid sound sources, being able to affect the sound environment, and having sough medical attention were common reactions and behaviors.
Tinnitus and sound intolerance: evidence and experience of a Brazilian group.
TLDR
A review of the salient points including concepts, pathophysiology, diagnosis and approach of the patient with tinnitus and sensitivity to sounds is presented, allowing the reader a broad view of the approach to these patients, based on scientific evidence and national experience.
Complaints of People with Hyperacusis.
TLDR
Across patients, it was observed that there were different complaints about the sounds and situations that produced difficulty due to hyperacusis, suggesting thathyperacusis is a complex disorder and requires intervention that often involves multiple members of the medical team.
Prevalence of Decreased Sound Tolerance (Hyperacusis) in Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis of peer-reviewed articles published in English after January 1993 found a high prevalence of current and lifetime hyperacusis in individuals with ASD, with a majority of individuals on the autism spectrum experiencinghyperacusis at some point in their lives.

A cognitive model of tinnitus and hyperacusis; a clinical tool for patient information, appeasement and assessment.
TLDR
A schematic model of the cognitive mechanisms of tinnitus and hyperacusis can be used clinically in patient information sessions which are geared towards provide reassurance and encouraging the development of coping skills and can also help in the identification of underlying pathology.
Assessment and amelioration of hyperacusis in tinnitus patients
TLDR
The good correlation found in this study between the multiple-activity scale for hyperacusis (MASH) score and the overall annoyance ofhyperacusis score supports the reliability of self-rating of hyperacusIS.

TLDR
Hyperacusis was shown to be caused by pathologic conditions of the peripheral auditory system, diseases of the central nervous system diseases, and hormonal and infectious diseases.
Cognitive behaviour therapy for hyperacusis: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
CBT is a promising treatment for hyperacusis, although more research is necessary, and differences between groups ceased to exist when the waiting list group was treated later with CBT, and the treatment results were largely maintained after 12 months.
Psychometric Normalization of a Hyperacusis Questionnaire
TLDR
This new psychometric tool should be tested on hyperacusic patients to verify its relevance in pathology and define the involvement of the three dimensions statistically obtained on the hyperacusis symptomatology.
Hypersensitivity to sound--questionnaire data, audiometry and classification.
TLDR
This study included consecutive case histories and audiometry of 100 patients with hypersensitivity to sounds and proposed that there is a specific condition that could be termed hyperacusis, often elicited by loud sounds or by a number of other traumata or diseases.
Intervention for restricted dynamic range and reduced sound tolerance: Clinical trial using a Tinnitus Retraining Therapy protocol for hyperacusis
Hyperacusis is the intolerance to sound levels that normally are judged acceptable to others. The presence of hyperacusis (diagnosed or undiagnosed) can be an important reason that some persons
A meta-analytic review of psychological treatments for tinnitus.
TLDR
It is concluded that psychological treatment for tinnitus is effective, but that aspects such as depression and sleep problems may need to be targeted in future studies.
Decreased sound tolerance : predisposing factors , triggers and outcomes after TRT
An analysis of 187 cases of decrease sound tolerance (DST) reveals a variety of predisposing (trigger) factors. These include exposure to loud sounds, fear about the effects of sound on the ear and
Neurophysiological approach to tinnitus patients.
TLDR
Habituation is achieved by directive counseling combined with low-level, broad-band noise generated by wearable generators, and environmental sounds, according to a specific protocol, for habituation to occur, and it is imperative to avoid masking tinnitus by these sounds.
