Fear of Loud sudden Pops & Bangs!!

My daughter aged 10 is terrified of Balloons popping, gun shots, loud bangs and is getting worse instead of better! Just last night we were at the theatre and although she knew there was going to be a bang half way through show she sat with her fingers in ear from word go, was uneasy and on edge and actually jumped up petrified and ran out 15mins into show before anything happened. She will not go anywhere there is a balloon in fear someone will pop it. Is a wreck on fireworks night each year, will avoid parties just incase balloons will be present and now saying she will not participate in science experiments when she starts secondary school. Have arranged doctor appoitment as time has come for help?!!! Jayne(worried mum)Glasgow x
