I also get really annoyed by loud chomping, and I've been known to be really strict with my kids about keeping their mouths closed when they chew. It doesn't matter how loud the background noise is (ie: TV, music, etc.), I can always hear someone near me who is chomping. To me, it's like someone dragging their nails across a blackboard, only ten times worse.

I know I don't have the symptoms involved with ADD or ADHD, however I do have Tourette's Syndrome (I have only mild facial tics). I wonder if sensitive hearing could be related to a neurological disorder such as Tourette's....

Anon, I'm glad you brought this up because I thought I was the only person in the world who was annoyed by chewing noises!! It's nice not to be alone. :)
