Low threshold for noise

I have very low threshold for certain sounds. I can't handle noise, especially I find high pitch female or children voice
I also have trouble with neighbors walking around, the high bass thuds etc.

I am 35, male.I have always had this problem even as a kid or teenager. I cannot stand people eating or chewing noisy. I have left restaurants for that reason.
I can't stand hearing chatter coming from the distance.
I can't seem to focus at work (cubicle farm) or never feel relaxed at home.
However I don't have any problem listening to music loud, or traffic, or animals, or nature.
I have a history of OCD / depression/ anxiety, tendency to get obsessed. I know you are not my doctor, but where do you think I should seek for the solution?
Is this a psychological problem or is it there a physiological condition in which a persons senses are just too acute/sensitive? I am asking this because under fluorescent light my face and eyes turn red too.
