I did a search, but I didn't notice much for sensitivity to sound. Has anyone had experience where their child was more sensitive to everyday sounds, such as regular toys, after their Vax? I know this is an oddball question, but I thought I would ask anyway.<br><br>
Thanks so much!

I don't know if it was after her vax, but my 2nd dd always covered her ears when the toilet flushed and didn't like other loud noises. I think I ready somewhere it was linked to a deficiency in magnesium. She is fine now at 8.

Wow, that's interesting! I know I'm sensitive to noises. I was fully vaxed as a child, but I always attributed it to more of a personality type (I'm an introvert, generally quiet, don't like a "wild" atmosphere in general). But I have shown other signs of magnesium deficiency, which clear up when I remember to take my supplements. I'll have to pay attention to whether those sensitivities change or not.<br><br>
My youngest son, who has had no vaccinations, is sensitive to sound as well. He seems to be getting better now, but when he was 2-3, I remember he would cover his ears or even cry at some sounds that were pretty normal.

sound sensitivity is a form of sensory indegration dysfunction (specifically: auditory integration error) you might find some good info on SI sites, maybe not as directly realtes to vax (at least not that is admitted) but you ight be able to extrapolate it.. many (most) ASD kids have some level of auditory SI, Berard AI worked wonders for my son.. Magnesium makes sense also..<br><br>
With many meds being ototoxic it only stands to reason that vax and the toxins therein can cause hearing malfunction.. I will look for a specific reference link connecting this specifically to vax

I would be interseted about this as well, because after the last round(and last -- oh how I wish I could take it all back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: ) Vax, my DS has become more sensitive to sound, but that is the only change I have noticed.

Many kids go through stages where they absolutely don't like loud noises. My grandsons all three went though that. We just let them. We even covered their ears when there was a fire engine, or police care driving by, we put tape over the noise-toys to mute them, and we warned them before we start the sweeper etc,<br><br>
But extreme sensitivity for a long time can also be a symptom of autism.

Dumb question: What do you define as extreme sensitivity? And how long would should it last in a child?<br><br>
I could just be a paranoid first time mother, so I don't want to get him tested since I know how wonderful all these preventative "harmless" diagnostic tests can be. Maybe I am overreacting since I did Vax him, and don't want to miss any early signs of problems.

My self and my children were never vaccinated. Yes, they went through a stage of being afraid of airplanes, toilets flushing, etc. but those were all very loud, scary noises.<br>
They were never sensitive to noisy toys, certain tones in music or what not.<br><br>
My friend, whose son has Aspergers and other sensory issues cannot even stand the sound of a wrapper being opened or touched. I would say that is extreme. Even opening a box or canned food has to be done two rooms away from him or he will freak out.<br>
He cannot handle certain stores, like the ones that play muzak or certain white noise. He huddles down and whimpers with his hands over his ears.

there is a great book called When the Brain Can't Hear that is about auditory processing issues.<br><br>
a naturopath told me that sensitivity to noise can be related to B vitamin levels.
