Misophonia Test – Do You Have It?

There is no official Misophonia test. However, this check-list may be helpful in self-diagnosis.

Currently there is no formal diagnostic criteria for Misophonia. This means that there is no way to truly test whether or not a person has the disorder. Symptoms vary from person to person. This does not mean that you cannot tell if you have the disorder. Many sufferers have come together in communities based upon their similar experiences.

It is important first to note that current tests and scales for misophonia are not necessarily ratified by extensive science. Because of this, you should be cautious if you are presented with a misophonia test. As there is no official classification for misophonia, diagnosis is complicated for professionals. Though these scales are not necessarily perfect, professionals may use them to help decipher if their patient is struggling with misophonia.
