    Common Story Among ASMR

    I'm sure that my story is very similar to many others who have ASMR. My whole life I have gotten a tingly brain feeling at random times. I would never know what set it off and I felt that people would think that I was crazy if I told them. Then about one year ago, I had ASMR go...

    Asmr The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

    Just Found Out Today

    I've had ASMR my whole life, but I had no idea that it had a name or that anyone else had it too. I remember it from as early as preschool, when I always wanted to play doctor or hairstylist with my friends, but I always wanted to be the "patient" or "client" and never the...

    Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response

    I've always been very sensitive but I did not know that there was a name for this sensation. My triggers are slow, accented, or unique speech patterns, experiencing a high empathetic or sympathetic reaction to an event, and enjoying a piece of art or music. The ASMR videos I...

    AMSR And Photic Sneeze Reflex ?

    Weird Triggers

    How I Discovered Asmr

    When I was younger I used to get this relaxed feeling from the sound of people whispering. It was this tingling feeling in my head and neck. I also got the feeling from watching snooker games because it would go all quiet and it was really effective. I had no idea what it was but...
