I would have to disagree with you. As someone who has dealt with ADHD their whole life and has done countless hours of research and reading, I would have to say that the hearing background noise and not being able to tune out is totally an ADD/ADHD symptom. You do not get distracted when you are able to tune out sound, you get distracted because you cannot tune it out. Here are two small articles for you to read if you choose to about this hypersensitivity and ADHD: https://www.additudemag.com/slideshows/senses-hypersensitivity-and-adhd/, https://psychcentral.com/blog/adhd-and-women-when-your-senses-are-extra-sensitive/
I hope you read it and see where we are coming from. Thank you for your response.
