This ASMR thing is interesting. I read some articles about it, and they say the sound is supposed to make me feel good and relaxed. Well it doesn't do that for me, I find the tickling really annoying, but I searched for some ASMR videos on Youtube, and it's amazing, this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTAhxRVbocE ) killed me, I couldn't even watch it for more than a minute. Maybe it's a special type of ASMR?View Thread
I'm a 22 year old female and I have the exact same thing. My parents always thought I was crazy when I was about 4 years old and asked them not to talk to my right ear, because it tickles me. I never felt it was a problem until I started listening to a relaxation tape before sleeping. When the narrator was speaking to my right ear, I had to jump up a little, because it felt like someone is poking the right side of my back. After a few times I could't do the relaxation again, this tickling ruined it. Then I started to look but I found nothing in my language, then I found this and I'm happy that I'm not the only one with this problem. It's very interesting that I was born premature too, one month earlier. I really hope that someone will know what is this exactly, I'm getting really curious about it. View Thread
