It seems you're in pretty good company if this happens to you your 'phobia' as many famous 'intallects' went to extremes to deal with their misophonia. Proust even wore earplugs to block out all sounds.
This reaction is an anxiety disorder called misophonia, defined by Web MD as “a disorder in which certain sounds trigger emotional or physiological responses that some might perceive as unreasonable given the circumstance.”  The most common sounds include chewing, slurping, nail-clipping, nails on a chalkboard, snoring, sniffing, crunching, tapping, joint-cracking, tongue-clicking, and dragging metal across a surface.
I'll go with the earplugs.
Another way to manage misophonia is the administration of medications such as Lyrica (Pregabalin) and Klonopin (Clonazepam). Most health care providers would not recommend the use of these anti-epileptic and anticonvulsant medications to treat misophonia.

🙋🏽♀️ Crunching ice, the buzzing sound that comes from fluorescent lights, grease frying in a pan, and cards shuffling can be added to the list.

Wasn't there also a study correlating people who feel easily disgusted by others and Naziism ?
