IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – A new video featuring NFL superstar brothers Peyton and Eli Manning is gaining popularity for Peyton’s reaction to his brother’s crunching while snacking.
Peyton’s reaction is a condition known as Misophonia.
Intimidating name aside, the condition is actually quite common, according to Dr. Paula Land of The Hearing and Tinnitus Center in Irving.
She said Misophonia is defined as a condition that causes, “An aggravation or an annoyance with specific sounds, usually mouth sounds like eating.”
In the video Peyton pleads with his brother to stop making loud noises while he eats because it was driving him “nuts”.
Land said studies on Misophonia are not extensive. She said the treatment right now is a small hearing aid that can drown out the nuisance sounds by streaming nature sound or white noise.
Th effects are troublesome for people suffering from Misophonia, according to Land.
“It can be extremely debilitating. It causes extreme anxiety,” she said.
