People Describe The Weirdest Thing Their Body Does That They Don't Really Talk About

Our bodies are miracle shells walking the face of the earth. We are complex entities. And there are many wonders about our bodies that elude us.


Some of us have experienced strange physical afflictions but don't really question it or discuss with anyone.

In most cases, as this thread will reveal, there is a diagnostic term for every weird sensation or abnormal pain we feel.

Redditor brainpain152 asked:

"What is something weird your body does, but you haven't told anyone about because you know it's not normal?"
The positive thing about the thread was that those who thought they were alone with their bizarre symptoms were not alone at all.
Do any of the following responses sound familiar to you?

That Flowing Sensation

"I have this sensation like sand flowing down the back of my head sometimes. It's quite weird."

"I get it too! I had someone tell me it's spinal fluid draining or something like that. I'm not entirely sure if they knew what they were talking about though."

There's A Name For This

"I didn't know how to explain it for the longest time, but it's apparently the tensor tympani muscle contracting when you close your eyes really hard and squeeze, which causes a 'rumbling' noise?"

Who NOSE About This?

"If I press the left side of the tip of my nose the cartilage will often click into place and hold that depressed position until I flare my nostrils and it pops back to normal."

That Shrinking Feeling

"Ever been in an empty room and you get this really weird feeling as if you are super small and everything is massive??? Really strange feeling I would get. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this same feeling."

"Sounds like Alice in Wonderland syndrome maybe?"

"This is what I was going to say. My son had it pretty frequently as a kid. He used to describe seeing stuff that sounded like he was on an acid trip ('the doorknob looks huge, but it also looks far away')."

The Nipple Effect

"Sad nipple syndrome. It's a thing."

"https://theotherpress.ca/sad-nipple-syndrome/"

"For those who have no idea what this is (understandable, it hasn't been researched and no one really knows why it happens), it's a strange, indescribable sensation that some people get when their nipples are touched. The best way I can describe the sensation is a mixture of dread, homesickness, nausea and, bizarrely, thirst. The feeling goes away after about 20 seconds or so once the nipple is no longer being touched."

"There doesn't seem to be anything obvious that links those who get it (such as past trauma or breastfeeding mothers), although it does mainly affect women."

It's Shocking

"I get what's called 'brain zaps' ig, where you feel a burst of electricity go through your mind as you're trying to sleep at night. Mostly happens when stressed. Muscle spasms that occur in some parts of the body such as the legs."

"Edit: pretty sure its exploding head syndrome from what people have commented. A quick electrical current that travels around my brain within a split second, makes a kind of zinging sound then disappears after my brain is jolted awake again. Another comment mentioned the correct name for it though."

"Edit 2: just saying im not a doctor of any kind lol. When this happens I just let the moment pass and I eventually fall asleep as usual. Its not a serious condition, just something that happens every once in awhile and it can be scary."

Hidden Talent

"I can pop my ankle bone on command when I do this weird circular movement. Only on my right ankle."

Perpetual Pain

"I am always in some sort of pain. It's not a normal pain. My body doesn't rest when I sleep and as a result I always experience muscle fatigue."

So Excited

"I shake when I'm talking about a topic I find exciting. This is why I'm usually not very chatty."

Prissy_Hobbit

"Aww this one is actually very cute. It's like your excitement is radiating off of you!"

Chest Pain

"I did tell some people in my family, but I have always randomly gotten this stinging pain inside the left side of my chest at random times. Whenever I breathed itd hurt more the deeper I breathed in, but once I breathed in a certain amount, I would be fine until I breathed deeper than the last breath. It rarely happens and has never lasted more than 5 minutes. Its strange."

ThatGuyAgain777

Remedy

"Precordial catch syndrome as previously mentioned. I figured out a way to get rid of it - when you get the chest pain, sit down and bend over forwards like you're trying to touch your toes. Hold that position for 30 seconds or so. It stretches out the muscles in your back that are spasming and referring pain to your chest. Sounds crazy but 100% works!"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
