Natalia Oreiro spoke again about misophonia, the neurological problem she was diagnosed with when she was young. Although she has treatment, the disorder, which was translated as “the hate of sound”, there is no cure.

You asked me to take it out of my mouth”, recalled the driver. At the time, Oreiro explained: “It’s not really a phobia, but a neurological disease. It’s called misophonia and translates as hatred of sound”.

Natalia Oreiro told how it is to live with misophonia
Natalia pointed out that she discovered that she suffered from misophonia when she grew up: “I had it all my life and I didn’t know it. She thought she was crazy and many people looked at me like I was snobbish or hysterical. At first they don’t understand why chewing gum bothers me, but then it turns out that it’s not psychological. And that he has no cure.”
Regarding what del Moro consulted him with at first, he stated: “The gum for me is like the maximum point. But there are several noises that harm those of us who suffer from this. The pen, for example, is another of those sounds that make me anxious, palpitate, sweat, cold and I can’t concentrate on anything other than that. It is not an OCD but it is a neurological disease”.
Oreiro commented that there is a specific situation where he has a really bad time: “There is a group in Argentina that has this pathology and well. I for example I get in a car and if the man who drives is with gum I put on headphones how not to hear it. And so I avoid having to explain what is happening to me, “she specified.
