Hello. I have aphantasia and my other senses are affected too, e.g I can’t imagine tastes, smells, music etc.  I have always struggled with too much light or too much noise, e.g. a family meal around the table and lots of people talking, or sitting in a pub, or any background noise when I’m trying to work, or car head lights etc.  I became quite stressed over Christmas unfortunately. I should’ve just taken some time out and I didn’t. Anyway I’ve been wondering whether the fact that my mind is so quiet may have something to do with why I find the outside world over stimulating at times.  I might be able to manage it for awhile but then I feel drained.  I’d be really interested in other people’s experiences or thoughts.  Thank you, and happy new year, Sally
