What’s a strange thing your body does that you assume happens to everyone but you’ve never bothered to ask?

  1. Occasionally my hearing will ‘go out’ and everything will go dull.. and then a high pitched frequency screeches for a few minutes. No one else hears it and everything else seems really hushed while it’s happening. Maybe it’s the aliens.

  2. I can hear the high pitched hum from TVs and other electronic devices.

    I learned a few years ago not everyone can do that.

  3. If I eat (usually something carb-y, like pancakes) without taking a drink of some liquid, I feel like all the food gets caught in my chest. And then when I do drink, it actually kid of painful for a few sips, but then I can feel the food move and the passageway clear. I always thought it was just eating too fast.

    …anyone else?

  4. Sometimes I can hear my blood pumping in my ears. When I was a little kid I thought it was my “train of thought”.

  5. Hearing a high pitched noise that is not quite tinitus when it is really quiet.

  6. Once in a while it feels like when I’m straightening my elbow it’s a little bit out of place and is going to crack something. I have to bend my elbow back in and “realign” it.

  7. I can make a loud rumbling sound in my ears at will without moving any muscle in my face. I have no idea what this is called but it kind of sounds like when you put your ear to a seashell at the beach…or a giant earthquake is happening

  8. i get the shudders when i poo sometimes.
    my body involuntarily wiggles for a second…but only happens sometimes…never told anyone that.

  9. Very often I get a weird sound in my throat, like air/liquid in my vocal cord.. I’ve never heard anybody else have that sound.

  10. Feeling my heart beat in all different parts of my body without even touching to feel for it, however when I actually try to look for my heart beat I can’t find it at all…

  11. Whenever I’m about to throw up my mouth fills with metallic tasting saliva. Like my saliva glands just go into overdrive. I can always tell a good minute before I’m about to throw up because of this. The only person I know that also has this happen is my brother. I’ve mentioned it to so many of my friends and none of them know what I’m talking about.

  12. Mine is precordial catch, which is where it hurts to breath in too far for a few minutes. Pretty obnoxious.

  13. I forget to breathe sometimes, I start to breathe really shallow and then just stop for a little bit then I realize oh shit i’m not breathing.

  14. Don’t know if it happens to anyone else but sometimes when I yawn, my mouth squirts out a little saliva. Am I normal?

  15. I’ll sometimes get a random pain in one of my boobs that lasts only a second then goes away. But most of my female friends say it happens to them too, so I’ve never asked about it.
