The trouble with being sensitive to sudden noise is that it usually triggers an adrenaline reaction, which, if you live near a road, like I do, can impact on your sleep if a motorbike or noisy vehicle goes past in the still of the night – there you are, laid awake for half an hour or more, until your adrenaline surge (fight or flight reaction) disperses and your system relaxes again. Ear plugs can help reduce that risk.
I once ended up in A & E on a bonfire night because all of the sudden noise from the fireworks repeated minute after minute, hour after hour triggered real bad arrhythmia! I now just put on some music, or turn the TV up, so I’m getting sustained noise – which for me is not as problematic.
