Misophonia has also been associated with mental health disorders such as Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Autism-spectrum disorders, and more. The disorder inherently causes the sufferer to become distracted when triggered and to have trouble disengaging from a trigger sound. This “distractibility” can be misdiagnosed as or co-occur with ADHD. Therefore, it’s important that the clinician screen for symptoms of depression, manic depression, ADHD, behavioral problems, and other mental health symptoms.
