Purpose: Hyperacusis can be extremely debilitating, and at present there is no cure. We provide an overview of the field, and possible related areas, in the hope of facilitating future research.
Methods: We review and reference literature on hyperacusis and related areas. We have divided the review into Part I, where we discuss definitions, epidemiology, etiologies and subgroups, and how hyperacusis affects people. In a second article, Part II reviews measurements, models, mechanisms and treatments, and finishes with some suggestions for further research.
Results: Hyperacusis encompasses a wide range of reactions to sound, which can be grouped into the categories of excessive loudness, annoyance, fear and pain. Many different causes have been proposed, and it will be important to appreciate and quantify different subgroups. Reasonable approaches to assessing the different forms of hyperacusis are emerging, including psychoacoustical measures, questionnaires, and brain imaging.
Conclusions: Hyperacusis can make life difficult for many, forcing sufferers to dramatically alter their work and social habits. We believe this is an opportune time to explore approaches to better understand and treat hyperacusis.
