That's interesting stuff (to me)
My niece was born with spinal bifida. She's had literally, countless surgeries and today, if you talk to this 25 year old, you'd believe it if I told you she was 9 (unfortunately)
That said... when she was a baby and small enough to be carried around (today she's confined to a wheelchair)
Anyways, we'd be down at the dock and she would just start crying out of the blue and put her hands over her ears.
There were other circumstances where she'd do the same....but that was the one I witnessed.
Over time, we figured it out. Every time she would cover her ears and start to cry....there would be a jet flying way overhead (as in, "at" altitude, not flying overhead coming down to land on top of us)
Came to find out she was hypersensitive to some (certain?) noises.
She's never been able to articulate exactly what she did or didn't hear or what pain it caused, which is unfortunate. Still, she was as reliable covering her ears as my dogs are to bark when a strange car drives up the driveway. Though unfortunate for her, it was still fascinating to witness.
